Tall order, Protoform has never offered Precut 1/8 bodies, pretty sure 1/10 either.

Rumour has it that PF are planning on introducing pre-cuts. Time will tell I guess!
Thing is in 1/8 especially body position F/R has a massive impact on setup so it is a major downside to pre-cuts.
Usually I have 3 of the same body 1 cut neutral then 1 each +2mm FWD and BACK. The difference is huge. If I find I need more steering or more rear end grip it's amazing what swapping a body mounted just 2mm either way will make.

Yeah, i went through that with bitty bodies. Had to readjust the wheel arches on a few for the Xray RX8 and Mugen MRX5.

i prefer they could only cutout the Engine Bay, INS Box, Fuel Filler and body posts. Then one can do their own wheel arches!
