Default Need help with my project.

I want to replicate my 1978 25th anniversary corvette as a rc.

Most of the replicas are 1/24 and the metal bodies.

Has anyone seen any plastic bodies? And if I was to use the 1/24, would it be possible to make it run? (Linked below)

Not all manufacturers agree on what 1/24th scale is.
Each has his own idea, just like 1/10th scale.
Differences in wheel track and wheel base, total width and total length, not to mention shock placement will drive you nutz. And you might have to hack on the interior too.
However, you might try to stuff a MINI-Z RACER or a MINI-Z AWD in that body of yours. It won't be easy.
Or you make it into a slot car, but you'll probably have similar issues. Or you can scratch bulid. Good luck, keep us posted on your progress.
