No problem, I love using different bodies on my builds and encourage everyone to try it too.
Just did some quick measurements: the widest section measures 175mm, starts at 160mm from the front of the body, and goes on for 65mm further.

Why didnt you buy the lazer zx-s shell from kamtec in the uk. Its also advertised on ebay. Its an optima shell with extra air slots and would be the better option.

Just eyeballing that shell, it almost looks more intended for an Optima Mid, as it has a bottom clamshell and looks rather narrow. It appears doubtful that it has the width for an 8.4V stick configuration battery. Is it as wide as the Turbo Optima body in the midsection?
