On both of them the body is pretty much full between the mechanism and the bismuth weight.

being that the decoder is that small it should fit in the fuel tank area.

Assuming the B unit has the same wheel base it should work. Does it have the same little tabs on the inside of the shell?

I'll have to check, but I don't think the B unit has the tabs. It has a bent metal flap that is used to mount it to the chassis. Same wheelbase though.

Can you post a picture of it, preferably upside down and next to the A-unit? Even better would be to send it to me and I can make sure it fits (probably make a separate chassis for it) and has the same ride height.

Luckily it is still a kit, so I can send you the whole thing. The one I have is motorized (most were dummies from what I remember) but I was interested in having them with similar running gear. Let me know how to get it to you.

Got em, looks like the B-unit won't be a problem. Just need to make the chassis a little narrower to fit with the thicker sides on it. The weight will need to be modified a little to fit as well.
