Default mbx5t bodies

I recently bought a new mugen mbx5t. i really dislike the mugen body as you have to cut a hole in the roof to get the glowstarter on, and the front body clips dig into the body. I see there are many choices for new bodies, does anyone have any recommendations?

Proline
Parma
JConcepts
RCBodies.net
Reckward
did i miss any?

Thanks
Steve

J concepts fits best IMO. Nice, low, durable, and best rear fit near the wing.

thanks for the input guys. another thing i noticed about the stock body was that the front and rear shock towers rub the body and wore all the paint off. i have about a quart through this truck and i figure its only a matter of time until there is a hole in the body, not to mention it wore off the anodize on the shock tower. do these other bodies have this problem? or is this the norm on the mbx5t?
thanks
steve

I got a RCBODIES.NET & like it but its a old version & the new version looks much better.They have no body cut lines so its a little more eyeballin to get it just right but worth it. Not happy with mugen body,it breaks every where or the proline body,it breaks at rear & around shock towers, & the J Concepts breaks at the a-pillar unless you make tiny holes in window & windshield then the pit guy will break it trying to fuel it. The only body I will run on the MBX5T is in the link.
