Default bodyshell help

Hello all

I have a CEN Matrix.
I am unable to source a bodyshell in the UK.
Does anybody happen to know if the shell from another buggy is sufficiently similar to fit.
Any help much appreciated.

You can use a Proline MBX5 or Kyosho SP2 body for the Matrix.
It will require additional cutting around the radio box but thats about it.

Thanks for that.

I measured an MBX6 shell today at a local store and it was too narrow, is the MBX5 wider?

I thought the Kyosho shell wasnt far away.

the MBX5 is wider, I don't know exactly how much, but I would guess it at about an inch.

An XRAY XB8 would probably fit as well. I used to run a body made for an XB8 on my MBX5.
