Default hyper bodyshell


I have a Hyper 8 thats been converted to brushless, except the lipo's are so tall that it pushes the edge of the bodyshell way up and looks pretty stupid.

I'm just wondering what the tallest shell available for it is?

Is it compatable with Hyper 7 and 8.5 shells?

Is it just a standard 1/8 buggy sized shell?

Cheers for any help given!

Hey there I just raised my body posts up about 5 mm with a spacer in the front and for the rear I cut off the pin that goes into the bottom hole and drilled it out and then using the top hole in the shock tower screwed it in the bottom hole in the mount. then I braced it with a small piece of aluminum to the shock tower so it will not twist.

I can take some pics if you like
