The link you posted says the Protoform PF8-GT is compatible with a Kyosho Inferno GT/GT2 so yes

And necrobump. sorta its only a couple months old

I made the mistake of ordering this body for my new project and it obviously wont fit now that i have the suspension assembled.

I am looking for a body to cover an ERBE chassis with Slayer Pro arms. Hub to Hub total width is 12.5"

Does anyone know a shell that will be wide and long enough to cover. I know the Kyosho Corvette will but nobody sells them anymore.



My intention is to make a 1/8 TC out of this. It has been done but with the Kyosho Vette.

no sir, the gt1 is like a gtp from ofna..it will not fit.

gt2 is a longer wheelbase.

they do sell some, but u will have hard time finding them..plus they are over 100 bucks.

http://www.igthobbies.com/GT2-BODIES_c_224.html

all these will fit..most of them are out of stock...

my friend did the same thing and the corvette body did fit...

but might fit but as long as you move the wheelbase...just like this guy..look

See that's exactly the look im after, is the old slayer THAT much narrower than the Slayer Pro? My track right now is 12.5" and that body is spec'd at only 11" wide. Tires are tucked on that summit TC.

Another GT body option you might wish to consider is the Ipanema GT Warrior.

If fits all GT cars no matter if they are short or long wheelbase chassis.



http://www.brucknerhobbies.com/Ipanema.htm

http://winnerscirclerc.com/product_i...8fdd5c61be9f28

http://ipanemasports.com/testimonials.aspx

The GT Warrior has a proven race winning design, sells for only about $45 and is Made in America.
