There are a lot of variables to consider here and I think that may be why people are a bit hesitant to respond.

Is your WK at its stock wheelbase or is it stretched out? This can have a an effect on the body you can run/will fit.

How much articulation are you running? Most bodies will require some modification if you have more articulation. Otherwise your tires will rub the body. If the body is too wide the tires will hit the body under flex - unless, of course, you jack the body up high and away from the tires. This will also raise your CoG- which is not good.

I can pretty much guarantee that the mounting hole locations on these bodies will not match the body posts on the WK. So you are also going to have to determine their new location and make the new holes.

Sorry if this does not answer your question.

I have a wheely king that has that same sized body on it, its the Cadillac pictured in your Pro-Line link. it is a cutsom chassis, but it still uses the same body mounts that are on the wheely king

the wheel wells are cut out a bit but it still looks good I think, and it performs great

heres a couple pics to give you an idea:

Still using my pics?


Anyway, the MAXX sized bodies have a wheelbase in the 11 1/2 to 12 1/2 inche range depending on the body. The MGT sized bodies run in the 13 1/2 inch wheelbase range. So if your WK is still stock then they won't really look right. If it's been stretched out you'll maybe just have to get creative with body mounts. You can make anything fit it just depends on what look your going for. If you look on Tower Hobbies, they'll give body measurements to help give you and idea of how big they are.

You'll want to take a look at the regular 10th scale bodies then. Ones for the 2wd stadium trucks. The wheelbase on those are typically 10 1/2 inches which is a bit closer to the WK stock 9.4 inches. The WK is an oddball sized body.
