Talking MR-02 MM Porsche 911 GT1 Evo

Here is a photo of my latest MR-02 mm body. I haven't wired the front and rear lights yet but it is set up for them. If you are wondering, no, it's not a Kyosho body. I can also adjust the T-Plate and move the rear wheels back farther if I wanted to set it up as a MM LM. However, right now it is set up using the Enzo front body mount--this way I can swap it out with the already lighted Euro Truck body or simply an Enzo body.

It's a very nice body. I was worried about even being able to use the center rear shock since it does have that low profile look.

No, I didn't make the body. It's from a Carrera ExclusiV Porsche 911 GT1 Evo "Le Mans 97" slot car. I purchased the entire slot car locally for $45.14 with sales tax and no, I have not been able to locate just the bodies.

Here is a link to Carrera

Nice MR-02 TNB. The slot car bodies do make excellent custom candidates.
Unofrtunately most of the slot shops here only stock 1/32 slots.
That is one nice 911

Thanks guys. So far I've used the Carrera model above and a slightly smaller Fly Euro Truck. The truck is pretty fun to drive too, but it takes some throttle control since it is a little top heavy. It is fun though when we race the tracks here and I may have to mount a camera on the back sometime in order to shoot a short video of the Z's behind me.

Again, I have not been able to locate just the bodies. The local slot cars shops have also both told me that they cannot get just the bodies. It's probably because the more serious types purchase the cars and then upgrade the chassis which costs about as much as the initial slot car.

I also cut up my Toyata Land Cruiser. It's now a work pick-up. After all, I have to get the cat food hauled somehow. It was just a quick hack job, but it does have a rear window and a bed. There is also a rear view photo of the cargo in Gallery TNB. I just had to take a photo of the bag marked " 100% Natural Fertilizer" with a drawing of a bull. I have six different bags, but only used four. Some supplies are going in the soccer mobile including a miniture cat and cat food.
