And just when I thought a truggy body could not look any worse. The rest of it is exciting to see though.

that body looks like a 5 yr old drew it lol. I can only wonder how that made it through all the reviews before going into production. Only thing I can think of is one of the aftermarket body makers paid them to do so.

Function over form. I think it's hella ugly, but if it drives better, well...

Less parachutung and protected by the front shock tower. Makes sense to me. Truggy bodies get torn up fast compared with buggies. It'll still drive like a truggy.

So it's a Truggy you can also use in Buggy ? 2 in 1 deal I like it ! hopefully you can use a body that doesn't look like garbage

Seeing the bodies in person at PNB over the weekend, I think they look better in person vs photos.

Regardless, can't wait to get one of these built up.

I'm intrigued. It's ugly, but I can get over that. I like the thinking behind it, for sure. Did it miss it, or was the price not listed?

Buddy of mine got to see one of these go at a regional track and it looked really good out there, performance at least, body, well, someone will love it lol.

I take it there are not special rule sets out there that says a Truggy body needs to cover the front tower?

Hard to beat a 0 on lap time. Cause, 0 is the amount of time I'd spend on the track with that lunchbox. Lol. Everything else looks good!
