If it does get use to it LOL, im not a fan.. but if its faster and ROAR does not ban it, it will be all over the place i bet.

ROAR needs to keep its greedy little fingers out of design. If a business wants to try something new, if you like it or not they should be allowed to evolve the sport, and not be held back by a governing body. Look at nascar, all of the cars are basically the same, and ratings and attendance are down. They had to loosen the rules that control the car just to get racing more exciting.

Telling a company like proline, NO you cant do that is wrong. Let the consumer say what they will and wont buy.

Just because some of us dont like the design doesnt mean it should be banned, let the racers run whatever style they like, just hope standard style bodies will still be available in the future if this cab forward design body takes off

Come on people, looks mean nothing. I've never seen a 1.1 ride that looks like an 1/8 scale let a lone a truggy like a pick-up truck. Speed is what counts. I mean look at a F-1. Trully odd but oh so fast. Don't like the way it looks, break out the raddle cans.

Not sure about on buggies because no one had done it until now, but for truggies, the cab forward bodies make a huge difference. The increase in front down force and therefore traction is amazing. You would never think a body would do so much, but it truly does.

GS did a body like that.

Interesting to try that to see if it makes a difference, but with the front shock tower and hole for fueltank, it seems sketchy.
