Default 1/8 scale bodies

Where's a good place to buy 1/8 scale on-road bodies?

This may sound like a stupid question, and probably is...

Can the HPI Savage bodies (muscle car style like the 'cuda) somehow fit on a 1/8 road car?

Don't ask me why, I just can't stand Lola bodies

If you run the MRX-3, check Nitrohouse. They always have parts in stock, and probably have a few bodies to choose from (protoform lola works great). A few more links to see other bodies too.

Didnt you mention the MRX? Regardless, the bodies will fit the Serpent 950 or 960.
