Default What bodies fit Hotbodies Lightning Truggy

I have just purchased a second hand HB Lightning Pro2 truggy and want to know what bodies will fit on this?

I cant find original bodies anywhere in stock so am having to resort to another brand, but as I dont have a local shop at all, I cant go in and try different shells out.

So can anyone help and tell me what will fit easily?

Thanks

hi scott.

got your truggy away today, late today right before shop shut so may not show as sent untill tomorrow morning.

never knew you were on here.

checked with a mates xt8, and it looks as it fits just with holes cut in differnt spots, as what your probably going to have to do.

got your losi yet?

Im sure almost any body out willl fit. Just look at demensions, they makes bodies that say are for a that car only but they can be a lil modified to fit. For example when i ran Xray and wanted bulldog bodies i used mugen bodies because pro line didnt make xray molded bodies for bulldog.

Yup thats what I had to do. I have an Xray and cannot find bodies for it. So I took a Proline(not a bulldog, I don't like the flat bed-area style) made for the RC8T and made it work. All I had to do is drill my own holes, trim the engine hole differently, and hack about 2.5" off the back. I actually like the way it came out...
