Default Car Body On Stadium Truck

I HAVE A RC10GT STADIUM TRUCK AND I WANT A TOYOTA SUPRA BODY ON IT. THE ONLY PROBLEM IS THAT IT ONLY COMES AS A TOURING CAR BODY, SO CAN I PUT IT ON MY STADIUM TRUCK??

I think that you will find that the Shock towers will make the body sit to high. And the body posts won't reach the body. If you notice the truck bodies are raised over the shock towers. \

So I don't think it will be any good.

Try www.towerhobbies.com
They have heaps of bodies you might find something you like there.

You may be able to fit it with some modifications. If you can get someone to lend you a beater body to test fit, might be worth a try.

I think kyosho has a 4wd stadium truck that has a sedan looking body on it.

The kyosho you are thinking of doesn't have high shock towers like the truck he has.

this is a HPI NMT so idk if it will fit yours.

sorry for the dirt, I had just finished bashing in a baseball diamond.

you will need to cut the wheel wells extra big, and possibily the shock towers out (or get taller body mounts) but it should fit.

Sorry I don't have any photo of it right now. I''ve put sedan bodies on my XXX-T from time to time. You need to use a body that has the rear window area behind the rear wheels to give room for the shocks. Additionally you'll need to trim up the airdam so it doesn't scrape on jumps. The trick is using TC3 rear body mounts. A little modifaction and they work great.
