Pro-Line 1978 Chevrolet Malibu Clear Body
Pro-Line is proud to introduce the timeless 1978 Chevy® Malibu body specifically designed for the growing No-Prep SC Drag Racing scene! Bowtie fans will love this ultra-scale body that captures all the signature details of Mark Micke’s 4,700hp, twin-turbo, 200mph+ G-body Malibu.
Transform your Slash® 2wd or AE DR10 into a scale 1/4-mile beast in retro-classic square-body style! We recommend using our Hoosier 2.2″ Drag Racing Tires on the front, Hoosier Drag Slick SC 2.2″/3.0″ Drag Racing Tires or Reaction HP SC 2.2″/3.0″ Belted Tires in the rear, Pomona Drag Spec Wheels, and the Stinger Wheelie Bar to complete the ultimate hot-rod look.
To create the most scale look possible, the body is designed with a narrower track width than a traditional SC body. It is a direct fit on the AE DR10, but your 2wd Slash® will require some modifications to fit correctly.
Here is the list of modifications needed to fit the Malibu on your Slash® 2wd.

Ream a 14.5mm diameter hole in your body and insert it from the inside. Attach using Shoo-goo on the flange.
Rear Body Post Reposition Bracket .STL
Use these brackets between your Slash 2wd rear shock tower and PL Extended Body Mounts to move the rear posts 50mm rearwards. This will locate the Secure-Loc Caps on the flat trunk surface rather than in the rear windshield. This is not required but provides a better and cleaner looking fit.
