Here are some bodies that I adapted to mini-z chassis. They are not only for show, they run, and good!
Golf GTI MK1 (http://alain.galluser.free.fr/Z/GTI.jpg) This one made best lap on my track, faster than McLarens!
Renault 8 Gordini (http://alain.galluser.free.fr/Z/Gord.jpg)

I have many other kits or bodies that are waiting as next projects. Only time is missing... Still in the boxes I have:

CitroŽn DS 1:32 on Lit
CitroŽn GS 1:20 on MR02MM
Renault 5 1:24 on AWD without rear transm. to make it FWD
Citroen 2CV 1:24 on AWD without rear transm. to make it FWD
Corvette '69 1:24 on MR02MM
Old school Volkswagon 1:24 split window on MR015MM
Ford Torino Starsky on Lit (base: 1:32 Scalextric slot)
Mustang mach II 1:24 on 1:24 Auldey Z (RPMZ...)
Dodge Challenger '71 1:24 on custom chassis (with front engine + transm. shaft to rear)

Some white bodies in the working:
Countach LP400s transformed into LP500s
Porsche 934 transformed into stock 930 turbo
Small cosmetic changes to make them true.

those are pretty cool conversions... :D

love the gordini.... especially with tintin, snowy and the professor in the background...
what did you do to the wheels? looked like you chopped them in half and... inverted them?

bravisimo... :D

Love that Golf GTI MK1!!!!

What brand is it? Tamiya? Revell?? Italeri??

I found that SnapTite Kits from revell have super strong plastic, so bodies resist better the miniRc racing. I'm now building a BMW M1 from Italeri.... I'll post some pics when done.

Great JOBs!!!

Thanks guys!
@Herman: Glad you recognized tintin and friends :D they are part of the scenery at the train layout (rally track) more pics here (http://clicbox.tonsite.biz/forum_z/index.php?act=ST&f=22&t=838&)
Yes the wheels were modified and reversed so they can fit under the wheel wells as the body is 60mm wide only :eek: I just did not want to cut the body to fit wide rims. Surprizingly the handling is excellent on carpet, I think the very narrow wheels "dig" the carpet while wide rims keep slipping on it... It is a funny setup.
@Leonen: the Golf kit is from Fujimi, the plastic is pretty tough and still in one piece after quite hard racing. I choosed to not put wipers, mirrors, etc, and bumpers are held with double sided tape as glue would not resist. More pics of the Golf (http://clicbox.tonsite.biz/forum_z/index.php?act=ST&f=22&t=929&)
Can't wait to see your M1, this is a very nice car.

Hello, I know I'm visiting an old thread, but any updates to your projects? Particularly the Lits? I'm anxious to see what other's have done with their Lit. Please inform and post updated pics! Thank's! Great work!

Thanks! Well I finished a few of my projects and started some others. They are in my adaptations gallery here (http://www.nanospeeders.com/mini6z/fovea3dadaptations.htm)
About the Lit I will just paint/finish the citroen DS that I nstalled on it. As I am not racing this chassis anymore I will focus more on my Dnano chassis since it can accept a wide serie of resin bodies in 1/43 from several manufacturers like these from Neo (http://www.modelcarworld.de/relaunch/his-webshop.pl?script=shopsearch.php&t=temindex_php&userid=9409737&kunde=&sort=STOCK&t2=shopsearch2&f=%2ANR%2C%2ATYP%2C%2AMARKE%2C%2AHERSTELLER&f1=MASSSTAB&f2=STOCK&c2=%3E0&start=1&dif=100&language=de&c=neo&c1=&) :cool:
