Cat K1, K1 aero and K2 bodies?
« on: July 07, 2017, 02:24:02 PM »
Hi everyone, I'm trying to find out if the bodies are interchangeable  between the K1, Aero and K2.  I'm thinking of ordering some bodies, and the K1 body is a bit harder to find.

k1 vs k2 is a lot different, I believe the aero is compatible with the original k1

Burg is correct the K1 and K1 Aero bodies will fit either car ... Note K1 body is excellent for indoors the Aero body is better suited for larger tracks as it gives less steering.

I just checked stock and we have numerous quantities of all bodies in stock.
You can order factory direct but check out Discount RC Store I am sure my buddy Phil will hook you up if LHS won't order for you.

You want the K1 Aero body, you already have a K1 ;)

Maybe I'm using the wrong term... I mean the cover that you paint with all sorts of crazy colors...  Not the underbody, but the clear plastic cover.

Yes, we understand.

No, the K2 body, that gets painted, does not fit your K1.

The square orange and white body you run now is called the 'original' K1 body.  It's considered a good indoor body.  You can still buy them.  Part number U5116.  It's $18.99 at AMain.

The alternative is the K1 AERO 'Airflo' body, which will also fit no problem, and is part number U5123 and available at AMain for $22.49.  Good for outdoors apparently.

by the way, thank the Lord for Google........and kids, don't do drugs.

They can also be ordered locally at Great Hobbies, call them and talk to probably Dave or Tyler to see if they can give you a lead time.

Thanks.  I tried a search, but couldn't find clear information.  I looked at DiscountRC and couldn't find the K1 body, only the aero, so then I started wondering if I should get that instead.

Then Noah mentioned he's going to sell me one, so now all this will be useful next time. Thanks!
