Default Need a body for my XX, ideas?

Called Losi parts house, looks like the XX body may be discontinued since the are out of stock and there is no ETA from Losi. Anybody know of an alternative that can be made to work?

Thanks.

I have used the XX bodies on the Evader buggy. You could probably use the Evader Body on the XX.

Not sure if the new CR bodies fit the XX buggy.

Well, it looks like the rear mount is the problem. The evader actually looks pretty good from the pics on Tower's site. It would be good to know of some first hand experience though.

The Pro-Line Silverado/Sierra fits pretty well, although the front end is just a hair short on the CR or "xl" chassis. The only problem is that the body clips are on the curved, front part of the hood instead of the flat part.

Wait, are you talking about a truck body or a buggy body?

Darn, did they discontinue the Doube X body? I needed to purchase a new body for my XX. I'd like to run my XX sometimes, but I freaking misplaced the body!! DOH!!

Not officially yet, but the girl at Losi Parts House told me that Losi wouldn't give them an estimated ship date which means they are probably going to discontinue it.

Well if you happen to find out more info, please post it. Cause I still like to run my XX for club races vs. my B4 sometimes.

Ohh duh, why didn't I think of that. I knew that...when I first saw that buggy and the truck, I noticed it was basically a copy of both the original XX and truck.
