No they will with modification to the body its self or the chassis. The chassis is easier to do than the body.

Yeah like mini-t-owner said - it's easier to make an adjusment to the chasis rather that the body. just make sure you line up the wheels in the wheel well space correctly and set the chasis to that lenght. it's all mounting it right after that!

Thumbs up suggestion

i own a mini-z body and i put it on my evo and it fit like a DREAM! i would suggest getting a mini-z body and using that one so you get the best fit. they are 1/28 scale so no adjusting. just get the clip in the right spot and WHAMO! i suggest you get an autoscale body from Atomicmods.well, now that i think of it, might want to find somewhere else cuz thier shipping is CRAZY!

nice tut, good way to do it, and great job of explaining it. 2 pieces of constructive criticism, however.

1. I beleive you mean inches, and not mm in the size description of the front piece. cause .3 x 2.1mm is alot smaller than the front clip

2. please, please take some clear pics. my eyes seriously hurt from trying to focus what I'm looking at. you're holding the camera too close to the body. pull the camera away from it, and then crop the edges out in MS Paint before you post the image. it really takes away from what really is a great tutorial!

i dont think it should matter much with tutorials as people will always have questions/advice.
everyone has different veiws and should be allowed to query or show other ways without having to make a whole new tut.

cheers,
bondo
