Well if you are looking for bodies to practice on sometimes you can find a bunch at a LHS on close out but those are rare finds. Your best bet is probably 1/18th and 1/12th scale bodies as they are less expensive then 1/10th scale bodies.

With the exception of specialty bodies it would be very hard to find a website that sells only RC bodies. But you should find plenty of selection in the larger on-line shops like Tower, Horizon, Stormer, and others.

For practice... maybe try cutting a 2litre bottle of soda in half, and painting the inside? That might work... $.99 a try, and you get some soda to boot

Yah, that would work. You could even mount it on your car, but it would look a little silly...

This is exactly what I do - I've adjusted my soda drinking habits a bit too as too many soda's I was drinking came in green bottles - now I drink more that come in clear bottles
