Marui shogun body on tamiya

Recommended Posts

Hi my first hobby RC car was a shogun by marui.  I can not afford a vintage nib car so want to buy the tbg body shell and fit to another car.  Are there any tamiya this would fit?  It looks like it would fit my re re kyosho Optima as the layout of the shocks and motor is similar.  Can anyone shed some light please.  Thanks

Wheel base & shock layout is close enough on the Optima. The battery is mounted length ways in the Shogun, would the Shogun body be wide enough to fit cars where that battery is mounted width ways? Need someone to measure the width.

I thought of Vanquish or Egress (Avante family)... (or Manta Ray? it was re-released this year)  Rear towers seem kinda tall for both, so I don't know if they'd fit...

The Optima has a nice thin chassis so as long as the battery fit width ways I think it would be ok.   I think I will just bite the bullet and buy one to try.  The manta rays shocks are all wrong.  Front ones are too upright and rears on wrong side of wishbone.
