Default Proline Cab Forward Design Buggy Body

Looks like buggies are getting the truggy treatment. Here is the post of Neobuggy. What do you guys think?

Yuck! It looks ok (not great) on a truggy since it still looks somewhat like a truck. I much prefer the Losi 2.0 treatment which still at least looks like a traditional buggy.

PLEEEEEAAaaaaaaaaaaaseeee make it stop.

Looks dumb. Seriously.

It better show some major lap time improvement or something.

Probably makes a little more front downforce; but sheesh. Looks only a mother could love

I don't mind it. Reminds me when the 8ight-T 2.0 came out I thought it was the ugliest thing, but now I really like them. And probibly will be the same in this case.

If I wanted my buggy to look like a truggy, I would have bought a truggy instead.
