    1/16 Erevo body shell options, am I missing something?

    I'm after a body shell for the erevo I'm building up, but I'm struggling to find much choice in body shells.
    The proline rat rod looked a win, but that seems to be obsolete now, so not available anywhere.
    I've had a search on eBay, but not much variety is coming up.
    What options are out there these days please? If it makes any difference, I'm in the UK. There must be more choice than I'm finding.
    Cheers.

    Those are from the top of my head I know there is another company that sells on eBay, but I can't remember their name... Grizzly03 can chime in with their name.

    Other brands/bodies work as well, but you have to put in the research and figure for the track width and wheelbase you need.

    Good luck!

    I remembered the name: Team Bluegroove

    They have quite a selection of different bodies.

    Thanks guys, that's great.
    I'll see what's available in the UK from those in the first place, just to get a shell and get going.

    Some of the team blue groove look great, but they are in Canada....
    Hopefully they'll be able to post out, but it's gonna double the cost. Lol

    The proline one is out of stock everywhere so far, but I'm gonna give it week to see if that changes.
    The GMC body is available in the UK currently, so that's my backup plan. The other jconcepts shell just looks rubbish in photos.

    Long term, I've messaged the blue groove guys to see about postage, hopefully it's not a problem because I really like the baja bug shell.

    Thanks again for the help.

    I hope they can ship it to you.

    I really like the MERV's Baja Bug. I have mine from when Pro-Line still used to produce them:

    That looks great, nice truck.
    My E-Revo was running the Proline Bug shell until just recently, I loved that shell & was hoping to get another, plus one for the 1/16th scale. Currently I'm painting up a Rat Rod shell to replace it, since it appears to be yet another great shell that's now obsolete.






    Good news is Blue Groove will ship to the UK, but they are on holiday until the start of October. I'm going to order up a baja shell from them for the 1/16th to see how it goes. In the mean time I'll carry on looking for the Proline shell or grab a GMC truck to get me up & running.
    Only thing with the GMC body, the wheel arches don't look quite right over the suspension arms. It could well just be the photo, but it puts me off in a way.
