Big is beautiful, and in RC circles the 1/5th Scale RC Body is about as big as it gets! Available in both On and Off Road types and often manufactured from thick Lexan or Polycarbonate, the RC 1/5th Body Shell tends to be brand specific as most vehicles will only fit a certain type of body, make, or genre. Dimensions like wheelbase, width, body mount types vary very much by manufacturer, so if in doubt always check compatibility. Bodyshells for Large Scale RC Cars are often supplied clear in thick Lexan or can be supplied pre painted. Competition and Race Shells aid generating grip at speed and in the case of On Road RC Large Scale Bodyshells, are often based on recognisable brands of 1;1 Race Cars, Touring Cars, Race Trucks or even Formula One Cars. Off Road Large Scale Body Shells can be Buggies, Trucks, Short Course Trucks,Trophy Trucks and Desert Racers. Large Scale RC is the closest thing we can get in RC to full sized motorsport, and the bodyshell is a vital part of the whole equation. Remember you must paint all Lexan/Polycarbonate Shells on the inside, with a compatible paint that physically attaches itself to the Lexan.
