maybe start around a 3.5 fdr and increase the pinion from there.

The only Pits that fit are the grooves.

Im sure this question has already been asked, but I cant seem to find it. Does anyone know where to get a new body for the formula 10? Everyone seems to be out of stock, including HPI.

Not likely because it is easy to mount it like whats shown with the mini pack- cut the 'wings' off of the battery straps and use strapping tape from the ends of the shorty pack to the new modded straps. Or just run tape from the shorty battery ends to the chassis like I do
