Who are the fastest truggy drivers right now, and what bodies are they using?? Do you think that it's because they want to look 'cool' ? LOLOL A lowered COG gives you better handling, at any weight!These bodies are lower, are going to argue that too? LMAO.

The fast guys, Truhe, Cavaleri, Mayfield, Drake etc all use upgrade wraps. I personally dont think it makes that much difference and the upgrade stuff is off the hook.

Maifield only uses JC painted bodies from Kustom Graphics; maybe once or twice he used a wrap for a practice race.

Dude you are funny! No wonder your part of the team in your sig. I mentioned nothing about COG. I was pacifically speaking about the paint and the weight. And I was speaking about a post some one else made and you just jumped in. And just to say I don’t care, but unless you are stupid fast, you will not notice any difference between the bodies paint or COG of a body and on top of that COG that affects the truggy is all based on the chassis. A body is not going to flip it over in a turn unless its 6 lbs and you are gunnin it through a turn........




and................

I could have swore that Ryan Mayfield as of Sliver State rocked upgrade wraps...... actually "I heard" that he was under contract with them....... IDK

That was almost 2 years ago, but was only 1 or 2 times. He does run for upgrade, but doesn't run the wraps. They make all his decals and number plates etc...

Larry from KustomRCGraphics works really hard on Mans bodies and I wanted to make sure that he gets some credit .

Some pics I took from NitroCross...Click Here

...honestly, I don't like to make enemies over silly things. I'm here because I enjoy this hobby, and like meeting people that enjoy it as much as I do. I've made some excellent friends on forums, and they've been very helpful.

I love a good debate as much as the next guy, but I don't feel like bickering over stuff..to each his own, spend your $$$ wherever it makes you happy. I try to give good info, sometimes I'm right, and sometimes I'm wrong, and have no trouble admitting it

PW,

Man I envy you You took your own pics of 'the man'.. I wish that someday I get such an opportunity! Thanks for posting those!

If someone cut down a really big tree... and it fell across it right behind the cab... then maybe.
