Yea I like my Proline R body and the stock HB body way better then the JC one....
Now if you could only get one of the companies to make a 1pc similar to the stock 413 body, that would be sweet.

I really hope someone like FTW or Bitty steps up and makes a better one.

So far I have no issues with the stock O-rings.
The car has been built for about 4wks now and have been running it the last 2wks.

In my next order that should be here in a couple days I got some of the Durango orings that were recommended. 3x2mm P-3 Silicone O-Ring (S40 Purple) (8) [TDR330609]

my stock orings were sticking so bad it was like adding 10-15wt oil to the shocks. I have not tried the Durango ones yet, so cant comment. I like like how smooth and how well xring seal

The only thing so far that I broke was a rear outer ball cup, but only cause a Corr truck landed on my. The one nice thing is that the kit comes with extra ball cups.

The only issue I have had so far is the rear shock caps popping off. So far I have only converted the rear caps. I plan to do the front soon for symmetry, but they have never popped off.

I'm still running stock caps as well, but I do have the B5 ones just in case if needed.
I had my first shock cap pop off this weekend in practice but was after it kart wheeled 4 times, definitely a well built car.

I do like that there is another option, the Serpent SRX caps, but quickly adds up in price. Has anyone tried the TLR ones yet??

The new JC body shell, not for me, the Proline and stock one look soooo much better.
The JC one looks like a bus. Thumbs down JC

cool. Weird that the traxxas xrings work in both my AE and HB shocks, but only the traxxas ones work in the HB.

Thanks for the input
