Any recommendations on another brand shock boots that are more durable than the Mugen MBX7R boots?

Honestly, I don't run any. You're gonna end up getting dust from whatever surface you run on in the oil. As often as I service my shocks, it really doesn't make a difference.

Hey man. Not trying to be a pest by asking again but would love to run one of these at PNB. I just don't want to do it if it isn't going to clear my 4s packs. Please let me know. Thanks.

We run smc 6500 and the phantom body touches the battery,not a lot but still does touch...my buddy uses the stock body, but he smears the entire inside with shoe goo,last forever..it really works well

No, I don't use that body, it was only a suggestion.. Should be about the same.. It appears to me that the ae phantom body has more battery clearance over the phantom body for the mugen... The mugen phantom body is not made for the ebuggy

I contacted Proline and asked them if they had any plans for a eco specific body any time soon but have got no reply back yet. Hopefully they have something in the works. You would think with Adam being a big proline guy they would want him running their body as well as tires.
