        If you use a resin copy of the SCX body the noticeable effect will be a very good handling because the resin body is really very thin, thus lighter - see the SCX one. I feel a real handling difference between my cast Cuda and all other ( lightened ) resin body cars. It´s the lower c.o.g. for sure.
        The same effect is to be felt with resin copies of any 43rd scale plastic kit.

          @Roland, i think Garth used the SCX body! Along with the chassis, but with some improvements!

          @Garth: the wheels came out great! nice conversion! it takes some time to get the right measurement for the shapeways wheels to gain the possibility to push them on and be able to get the off nicely, ey?
          nice work!

              can´t you copy SCX bodies in resin?
              Ted in Canada did it years ago. Got 3 of his casts, one already done.

            I copied it short after it appeared on the market to save the original.
