Howdy partners!

Just a quick question before I purchase a new body. Does the corvette c5-r fit on a MA-010? Also what are the Prefered MA-010 bodies?

Interesting question. They handle so differently it only makes sense that bodies woul as well. I'm sure the pan car is on the list though. It's always in every list.

Look forward to following this one.

Where Abouts can I buy an unpainted 575 gtc?

It's also very heavy. I suppose that isn't as much a factor on the awd? It is a wide, long and relatively low body. I ran it with some success many years ago on the mr-02 before settling on something a bit smaller. Would the Enzo be similar to the 575?

Do the ma010 bodies also fit the mr015? New to the Z's and this was bugging me. Also, can the mr03 accept all bodies?

Every site I look at seems to be out of stock on the 575gtc :( any recommended sites?

nearly every body will work on all chassis platforms. the wheelbase and track width are the factors that will determine if they will fit the fixed wheelbase options for each chassis type. track width can be tweaked with wheel selection.

there are some old matrix schedules that listed bodies and the corresponding wheel offsets for track width by chassis type. it's been to long since i've gone to one to remember links though.

Simmo, I have a 575GTC body and I had issues with fitting it on my MA-010.
I'll have to test it again though, because I'm not sure if it was problem with my modifications of the chassis.
But also have in mind the huge wheel offsets..
575GTC is an MR-02 body with 2.5N/3W wheels on MR-02.
That translated to MA-010 equals 5N/3W :)

****e! HAHA yeah ive decided to roll with the 2003 NSX gt. looks like it'll handle better then my f430... the f430 spins waaay too much. but i think thats a combination of things including the tires.. im running 10 tires. i think i need atleast 25.

Sorry, my mistake - 575GTC fits MA-010. It was problem with my top mounted power capacitor.
But still the problem with huge offsets persists. :)

i run the same offsets as though it was an 02 ie 2.5n fronts and 3w at the rear
Any wider up front and the wheels snag the bodywork

Yes, but MR-02 is wider in the front than MA-010 by exactly 2.5mm at each side :) 2.5mm offset on MR-02 equals to 5mm offset on MA-010.
It's like MR-03 with Wide front and MR-03 with Narrow front :)
MR-03N = MA-010 = MR-015 (in terms of front width)
MR-03W = MR-02 (in terms of front width)
