Default Who still carries or makes 280-300mm bodies

Does anyone still make 280-300mm bodies for "super" sized touring / rally cars?

HPI - the RS4 Super Nitro & Rally in both 280 & 300 sizes. Both can still be found in LHS or E bay. HPI also make a 300mm body for the 1/8 Proceed.

Thats what I have, the super nitro rally. Used bodies are going at a minimum of $45, new bodies clear or painted anywhere from $50-90


Seems like alot for a piece of lexan lol. Are the Tamiya TGX bodies the same size as the HPI?

The Tamiya's are 300mm and fit fine. But are just as hard and even more expensive than the hard to find HPI bodies.

If you guys are super nitro fans, you should really pay attention to the super nitro thread on the other forum. I know there is a very old thread on rctech, but most of those that follow this car can be found on rccaraction.

My bodies Just arrived from Mcallister. I highly recommend them.

Great looking stuff. I ordered a toyota GTP and a Nissan GTP, both look great. They also thru in another toyota GTP body in for free that was slightly blem'd. Its a smokin deal for 13-14 bucks a piece. comes complete with wings, window masks, and the nissan also came with decals.

Funny, I have a 300mm 350Z painted in that color scheme. I just need to finish putting the decals on.

As for the Mcallister Racing bodies, I might have to give one a try.
