i'm trying to get a chassis that fits my body, because my body's wheelbase in only 7.5 (thats my measurement) but all the ones i'm looking at are about 10 in.
can i find any chassis that fits? i plan on modding, so the specs really do not matter

Wow, that must be one sweet looking Saleen body if your willing to find a chassis to match your body. Typically, you'll need to cut the body to match the chassis. don't worry, just get a nice pair of body cutting scissors and make the body fit whatever chassis you chose. Hope this helps

Furthermore, A nice body is cool but a good handling car looks even better. Try and pick a car thats known to handle well like any of the big brand names. By the way, Speedtech or your local hobby shop should be a good starting point

I saw the pic on the HPI website. If its a 190mm body then it should fit any electric 10th scale touring car chassis. Although, you will need to do a little trimming to make it fit right. Good luck!

Well 200mm are supposed to be used on 10th scale Nitro cars and 190mm is for electric. You can either go buy a gas car or just have a slighty oversized looking saleen body on your electric car.

This body is indeed for 200mm nitro. Here are a few chassis you can choose from: Mugen MTX3, HPI R40, Kyosho V-one R and FW-05, Serpent.

many people actually fit 200mm bodies on electric...All you need to do it buy some offset rims. Around 3-6mm offset in the rims will make the wheels stick out a bit more, and fill in the body.
