Default Most durable stadium truck body

Anyone have opinions/experience on the most durable of the current stadium truck bodies? I've been running a 22T 2.0 body on my T6.1. It's been great but it might not make it through this calendar year.

​​​​​I've read the bad news about the T6.1 kit body and the F2. I'm open to crossing platforms. I feel like most stadium truck bodies should fit with some trimming.

Thanks

the most durable body is made by a company called Stop Crashing. 😁

All current bodies seem to be more or less cross compatible. After neither the F2 nor the AE/PL body lasted really long on my son's Yokomo, we are about to try the Xray body, at least until the Finnisher is available. The Finnisher took a lot of abuse on my T4 and is still in good shape, so my guess would be that the as yet unreleased body will be the best choice when it hits the market in September or so.

The plain xray xt2 body is a drop fit onn most current trucks minus the TLR and is much mire durable then either the jconcepts, or proline offerings.

Cool, thanks for the info. I initially strayed away from the Xray due to the price but I'll be on the lookout now.

personally I use some fiber reinforced tape (like what you use for batteries in onroad cars) on certain parts to help strengthen up a body. On my daughters cars, pretty much the whole body. works quite well with her short course truck

if your not worried about adding extra weight on top, use flex seal. That stuff on tv.
or the equivalent. They make it in white too
