any 1/10th body, the T maxx bosdies will not fit good they are too long, that truck was designed as an acyual 1/10th monster truck, the traxxas is actually a bit larger than 1/10th, I actually still have a USA1 on the shlef of my hobbyshop!

OK so your saying i have to go and get a 1/10 scale body? and ithought the truck was 1/8 scale... well it looks big enough to be an 8th, bit tha chassis is mor similar to an 10th... i will take my truck to the lhs see what they tell me. but my lhs is mostly into plains and trains, im not shure if they'll have a monster truck body for me...

thanx!, i went to my hobby stor, they had a few bodies of trucks and suv'z, and they were 1/10th scale, and my wheels were slightly longer than the bodys wheel well... so im guessing its gonna need an 1/8th body, but im not the expert, u tell me...

Ok the one i have in here, and yes its still new in the box LOL is the 1/10 scale USA1 monster truck with a GS21 engine, thats why people are probbaly saying its 1/8th scale is because that engine size is normally in an 1/8th scale buggy or truck, SO any 1/10 truck body will fit(maybe a with a little modification of body mounts and such) It just looks huge cuz the tires are huge, but the body is definitly 10th scale. sorry it took so long! Yeah I work AT the Hobbytown USA in Strongsville ohio 440-846-1770
