I kind of figured the same thing, I'll start out with a speedy 07. I'm hoping an S02 or S03 will work ok, probably so, if the chili does.

I finished my chassis build, but now have to paint and mount my PN Pan Car body.
Does any body have any hints on mounting non-lexan bodies?

screw the front clip in, instead of the carbon bumper and use pins in the rear

thats the only way stu,ive mounted an old enzo body to one(drilled the holes) to use as a marker body but havent mounted a good one on it yet.
with the clips removed the sides of the enzo almost touch the rear brace so there is some scope to modify and mount another way,not sure with the pn pan body though.
which version do you have,red alloy parts and full topdeck or new one with silver alloy and bdds?

hey mk2,
I have the red aluminum, full top deck chassis.

I tried to mount the pn pan car, but the posts go right where the vents are on the top of the body, so you have to drill or cut a little crescent on the top and bottom of the vent. It's do-able, but not just a simple hole.

My first holes were too far forward, so I filled them. I tried again, but it just wasn't right. Now there is too much filler, not enough original plastic, I know it won't hold up to racing on that chassis, I'll just have to put it on an 02.

I'd have to start over on another body, so I might just go lexan.
I wish there were some more lexan bodies available.

same as my vds by the sound of it,posts through the air ducts.
i prefer the red parts over the new silver
the new tgr lexan ones are just about ready(mercedes slr,mclaren f1 and hurda II)
i should have some coming to me soon for testing.
there is a guy on rctech that has made some sweet bodies but its difficult to get hold of him and he is in europe(stockholm)

it sounds like it might be a while 'til they're available at web retailers, correct?

Here is a picture of mine ontop of my sinister, during masking, I got it paited last night and pictures are in the planning...

wow! those are some great bodies at tsp. thanks for that! awesome choices.
I wonder how the wheelbases match up between those slot cars an 98mm?

does anyone know what offset wheels go with the hurda?
+3 N front, +3 W rear?

stuZ: Be careful with the Hurda body as it WILL crack and brake at the slightest impact, I have broken 2 or 3 already .... They are very easily broken.

The lexan(parma) I have on now, survived a race last night, even after me rolling at the end and flipping it onto the floor, yes it was airborne for some time there hitting the concrete floor...... I broke one of the body pins but the body and chassies are without damage!!

The truscale bodies, I have seen the mirage M2 mounted on a P28 chassie so I think it will accept +3 offset all around. I did not find a single picture now but in this thread there are atleast 2 pictures of truescale bodies MirageM2 and a ferrari both cars can be seen sitting on top of a power supply. http://www.pocketrocket.se/index.php...pper&Itemid=54
The pictures are all from the HURDA challenge in Jonkoping Sweden. Scroll down... the MirageM2 is blue/orange and sitting to the left of a HURDA body in orange/white with number 1 on it.
enjoy!

/Johnny
PS
You can also see my sinister belly up on 2 pictures...

Hey Johnny,
I noticed that body, and liked it. Luckily, this place: http://www.scrhobbies.com/
is a close enough drive from me. I picked up couple of .007 bodies.
They're pretty thin and that worries me, I'm sure .010 is better, but even then.
Also, where I race we don't really have an open class, we race speedy 07 or lesser, and nobody runs lexan bodies. I'm afraid my chassis would get brutalized in a couple of good smacks.
I think I'm going to go back to a hard body, but with the front post setup.
