Was thinking maybe a thin layer of silicone adhesive to the edge of the cover to make a better seal?
Any thoughts or ideas?
I cut a thin slice off a plastic shock nut and fix at the bottom I run mid motor though there's a hole in the chassis in the perfect spot

Hey guys,

Anyone tested the Phantom body yet? I have two in the painter for the new season and I was wondering how it compares to the stock body?

I like the plastic on plastic. Steel wears out the plastic really fast and then you get slop. Slop = bad for the wallet, bad for the performance.

Well if you didn't see my post lol.. I like it better then stock.. Low profile and the body pushes down vehicle due to the aero down force style of the body.. you'll notice it it on fast layouts more..

Haha but I don't know, I'm sure it would be nice for people not to have to spend over $100 to have a decent assortment of springs

Thank you for not kicking me out of the thread LOL I ran tlr for some time and decided to get me a rb6 but like you said I really don't want to spend all that money on just springs when I have every one that tlr has made for the 22 series.

That would be greatly appreciated if you could post your findings. I looked at the avid springs and will get those if the losi ones don't fit considering.
