Default who makes this body ???



i would like to get a FORD pick-up truck body like this for my JRXS, does any body no which one this is ??, i looked around and seen that HPI has a few but not sure if it's a HPI body and what is the difference when running a 200mm body on a 190mm body car

and also this HPI body says, "This 200mm wide body is perfect for any wide electric Touring Car " so does that mean it would be fine on a 190mm car ?




any help/info would be great
thanks

HPI makes it. You can find it in the 200mm body list on their website. It will fit fine on a 190mm sedan. The wheels will just be set in a little.


Frewer makes a simlar body called the F-155. You can get it from Schumacher USA.

I'm scratching my head on this one..

Why would you look on the schumacher site?

HPI sells body for $22 dollars. Looks like it is in stock.

i looked on the schumacher site because he said you can get it from them and i have never seen that body he mentioned before and wanted to have a look and check it out and figured if they sold it they would have pics on there site and if i liked it better then maybe i would order it instead of the HPI one, i hope that is ok now that i explained myself to you


thanks for the help guys

I will be the first to say the Schumacher Website is far from perfect. Unfortuntnatly it is run by Schu UK so there is nothing I can do about it.

THe Frewer F-155 is part number FR21 in the US. It sell for $21.99 and we have it in stock now.

I run a 200mm HPI shell on my sprint 2 Drifter, which is 190mm , but I use 6mm offset speedway pal rims and they fill the guards perfectly,

or alternatively you could use wider hex adapters and thinner nuts to achieve some off set http://www.rcmart.com/catalog/produc...ducts_id=15006

That's IMHO putting it mildly.


Mr. Shep.
Protoform, HPI and Parma all have Ford 150 body. Try looking at the truck bodies in you LHS, you might find some that fit your car.
