Does anyone know where I could find a G scale locomotive shell? I have a Traxxas R/C truck I picked up at my LHS years ago and was never really into R/C as I was model railroading so it has been sitting unused in a box for many years. So I dug it out a few days ago and thought aybe instead of the truck shell that came with it, put a G scale locomotive shell on it instead. The truck is 1/10 scale and here is a picture of the frame/engine where the truck shell goes on.

Would a Sash 9 fit on that? If not, what would? I am not as knowlegeable in G nor am I knowledgeable in R/C cars for that matter. I know more about HO/N scale.
