Thanks Peter, I agree these are nice looking bodies.

Here's a GT-R that I found some time ago, sitting on a Dslot Audi chassis.

I think I'm gonna get Lancia too, maybe Ferrari F40 and 360 too.

Mine arrived today

Some first thoughts,
SCX Compact Porsche/GT tires fits at least Modena's and F40's wheel.
Enzo's wheel is bigger but same profile so same tire goes to that one too, need to stretch the tire a little bit.
So those wheels can be used as they are with CarGo high grip tires, only need to get them fit to bigger axle, they come with 1.5mm axle.
Chassis is too soft to use it like that so it needs some work if used.
Not sure what I'll do with them yet but they sure looks amazing.

Cheers

nice haul, Aki!
i do not really like the body holders but at least they are quite easy to handle.
stiffening the chassis should be possible, some length and crossbars where the motor is placed should do the trick.
i would use some printed wheels and use the wheels that are coming with the bodies as inserts.

Yes the body post are horrible, especially the front.
I came out with an idea pretty much like you said and build an simple chassis frame to mount to the plastic.

But why would I use the plastic chassis anymore when that only needs side pans :P
