Is it posible to fit OL bodies on MR-02s? I think some would look preety good lower with some inch-ups.

Sure it is possible ... you don't even have to add inch up wheels. But for sure, other wheels will finish the job like it should be done!

Goog luck and have fun .... you can see a sample at http://users.pandora.be/belgianmini-z/belgianmini-z/peterx5.htm

well, if you mount the body on the chassis like every racer has (2 clamps on the sides and the plate in the front), the front bumper gets a good support and will not break. You'll have to take out the 2 front body clamps of the Overland based clips.

:) . Looks awsome! Does it only fit the MM chassis or could it possibly fit both?

Only if we had an under shot of that X5 to see the wheel offset. I may have to try that myself.

There are also photos of a couple of local "Fly" slot car truck bodies on MR-02mm's in Gallery TNB. They handle better than what I would have anticipated. :)
