Will 1/43 slot car bodies fit on the Dnano. As soon as these thing come out this is a question that a lot of us will be asking are selves. As soon as anyone figures this out please let us all know.

After a quick search on the net I found two companies that are making slot car bodies in this scale and they are SCX and CARRERA and there may be more. I found that slot cars have been made in this scale going back to the 1960’s so there may be some vintage gems floating around. I also found 1/43 scale slot car bodies for as little as 2 bucks.

This youtube video will give you an idea of the scale of the SCX 1/43 slot car bodies.

There are also a few 1/43 scale resin model kit's that may be adapted. One such kit I'm dieing to get my hand's on is a 1/43 scale resin model of my all time fav Koenig Specials Competition. One issue will be while the body may fit, how will the wheel's offset's line up?

There are a number of excellent body shells potentially available for the dnano.

Currently Ninco have the best looking body shells available!

By the way retail price of the dnano starter kit in the UK is hgoing to be 150!

Thats a lot of dollars!
