    Best Body for Speedruns

    Hey everyone,

    Sorry for posting so much lately, but I am well into planning and creating a Traxxas 1/16 speed car. Right now I have a Traxxas 1/16th Rally body for the car, but I was wondering if there are any designated speed run bodies for 1/16th vehicles. If you know of any, please let me know!

    I understand that this is a 1/16th Summit forum, but the car is basically the same, and the Merv/Mini Slash forum gets filled up quite quickly with new posts every few hours or so, and old ones get overlooked.

    Thanks for your help!

    I have not tried them for the Traxxas 1/16 scale, but Delta Plastik 1/12 bodies seem to have the right wheelbase:

    It's not too crazy expensive to convert it into a Mustang. I never did much speed running with it, but 75-80 mph was not too hard to reach. Just a different combo and the right gearing was enough to get there.
    No idea if those bodies are available, that might be a problem.
