Default Losi 8 2.0 aftermarket body that won't hit T/B linkage??

To all the Losi 8 2.0 owners out there: Do you guys know any of the available after market bodies out there that will clear the throttle/brake linkage?

I read somewhere here that some of the guys said not to worry about it but its just really bothers me I had to cut out a hole on my stock body.

There is no need to cut a hole in the body. Just put some tape over the spot where it's rubbing to save the paint.

I recently heard that they will bring the EU body to the US. The EU body has solved the rubbing issue by putting a dimple in the body to avoid the linkage.

Same as you I needed to extend an area so I got out the heat gun and warmed it up,using a ball hammer or something rounded I just lightly pushed up against the shell until I got the required shape.
Problem solved

Incorrect linkage set-up will cause it to rub, Set it @ 10 and 4 and you wont have any excessive rubbing Or heat it up and push it out a couple mm's
