Nissan GTR Skyline MR-015 on MR-03 chassis

Hi all, i have the Blue/White Nissan GTR Skyline for MR-015 chassis that i would like to use on my MR-03 chassis.
Im changing the motormount wich i think will take care of the wheelbase.
But how about mounting the actual body on the chassis? The front plate that followed the body does not fit the MR-03. Also im not sure if it will attach to the rear?
Can i do modifications myself at home, or do i need any special parts.

The nose clip should be a direct swap. Kyosho has not changed that design from one chassis platform to the next....

As for the rear, I guess you are wondering if the wheelbase can reduce down to 94mm (or do you have a newer 98mm skyline gtr?)? If it's newer then the wheelbase should adjust no problem but the stock MM pod doesn't reduce down to 94mm.

I figured the rear, no problem.
And you are correct, the nose clip fits, but the front wheels are not sentered in the fender. So, is the only way then to trim the fenders..?

Did you switch to the narrow MR03 front end?

centered side to side or centered front to back? Side to side means your wheels arent the same offset and back and forth happens once in a while...I have 2 out of three ferrari f430Gt's that have that front wheelwell problem and as long as it doesnt rub i ignore it.

If it rubs take a hobby knife and carefully trim some plastic.

As pomme suggested, it sounds like you're currently set up "Wide" - you need to swap to "Narrow" in order to run the MR-015 body. Let us know if you're not clear on what this means...

In most cases, wide front should clear "narrow" bodies just fine if you use -1 or 0N rims. I run my 240Z that way and don't really notice too many problems outside of my driver error; that and supergluing the tire sidewalls helps a ton.
