Body shells still not available?

Postby Doughboy19770 » Fri Aug 26, 2016 10:59 pm

Hi All, I am a late arrival to Slotless racing and love the concept, however coming from an RC background I am disappointed that there are no additional body shells available?
I am a capable model builder and regularly build tamiya F1 scale models at 1:20 scale and I would love to use a kit body shell and fettle away to fit the Real fx car; I can see that this has been done using Scalectric cars but they are quite expensive from my eBay research.
What scale and brands offer the best starting point to convert and retro fit my cars?
Any advise guys?? :D

Can't believe $5 a body!! I got a couple from Pendle slotracing but they were more like £15. You can see them here viewtopic.php?f=3&t=213
