Does anyone know of a van body that will fit well (with different mounting posts obviously) on a 4x4 'pede? I want to paint one up to look like the Mystery Machine from Scooby Doo for my wife

its a bit smaller then a normal 1/10th... it is 1/12th after all... so it will be exceedingly cartoonish but that may be what your after

Linky doesn't work. You're talking about the Parma Lunch Box body, right? It's actually quite tough, but painting it in Mystery Machine colours'll be a right bugger.

Yeah, the 1/12 lunch box body might look too small on the Stampede...but it's probably worth a try. I just didn't know if there was anything else out there. I guess there's not much call fir van bodies

The link isn't working because tower is "upgrading parts of their site" until 7am on Saturday CST

I looked at the lexan Lunch box body for my 4x4 Stampede. The wheelbase is too short if I remember correct.

I think the Lunch Box has a wheelbase of 8 in and the Pede is 10.8

The lunchbox body actually fits perfect on a 1/16 merv. So yeah it would be goofy looking on a pede

You could cut a body and shorten the front on say a F-350. Then it would be a E-350.
