Another reason they look "different" is because trucks were originally marketed as "racing monster trucks." How many crazy looking monster trucks do you see?

Why do truggies look so ugly?

Because nobody gives a $h!t flying over the track at 40MP/H

I think truggies look good, right now my Revo is sporting a Slash body with 1/8th buggy wheels, minus the wing.

Question: Not trying to start poop, but these painters say that they are the ones that paint the pros bodies, but yet they are sponsored by upgrade RC.
So why are they sponsored by a company and do not sport their main product? Is it just for a radio wrap? Because the stickers on the bodies say upgrade - not painted by __________ ect..... It just seems that the people who claim to paint the pros RC bodies are gettin burnt...

i think upgrade makes all their custom color scheme logo stickers, and all the wraps for everything. but as far the body wraps, i was just looking at cavaleri's body last sunday and i can guaranty that it was painted. looks even better up close than in the photos

I have noticed that everyone is jumping on the Losi truggy look bandwagon. The new Proline Bulldog body for the AE truggy looks a whole lot like a Losi body. Better late than never.
