I only use motorsport body sets for my cars so finding one for the MO4 was not easy so I used a Arbarth 500 body which took me 5 months to get the correct Pastel grey paint, I found some body mount extenders in my spares box which allowed me to fit the arbarth without having to make any new holes.
Fortunately Tamiya released the mk2 Escort body so at last I got a rwd body for it ÃÆ'à€ 'à  ‚¬  'ÃÆ'       €š ¬    'ÃÆ'à€ '               ‚¬Å¡   ¬        'ÃÆ'à€ 'à  ‚¬  '                               €š ¬Ã… ¡       ¬                '                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               °ÃƒÆ’Æ'à€ 'à  ‚¬  'ÃÆ'       €š ¬    'ÃÆ'à€ '               ‚¬Å¡   ¬        '                                                                                                                               €š ¬Ã… ¡       ¬ÃƒÆ’   ‚¬ ¦       ¡                               ¬                                                               ¦                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               ¸                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               €š ¬Ã… ¡       ¬ÃƒÆ’   ‚¬ ¦       ¡                               ¬ÃƒÆ’Æ'à€ '               ‚¬Å¡   ¬       ¦                               ¡                                                                                                                               ¬ÃƒÆ’Æ'à€ 'à  ‚¬  'ÃÆ'       €š ¬    '                                                               ‚¬Å¡   ¬Ãƒ €¦   ¡               ¬                               ¹ÃƒÆ’Æ'à€ 'à  ‚¬  '                               €š ¬Ã… ¡       ¬               ¦                                                               ‚¬Å¡   ¬Ãƒ €¦   ¡               ¬ÃƒÆ’Æ'       €š ¬   ¦               ‚¬Å¡   ¬Ãƒ €¦   ‚¬Å“                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               .

That is pretty sexy, but it really needs a rat rod VW Beetle sitting on that RWD chassis. I also would wonder if the specific M chassis motor that has the shorter can would help at all with the balance and handling of this beasty??

Thanks Crash, but beetle's do nothing for me I'm afraid. I've thought about but that motor doesn't list MO4 on the info just MO1/MO2.
