Yeah the shock bodies are great and hold up really well. The original blue shock bodies on mine were torn up withing 3-4 months of hard running.

Yeah I never bothered with them either for the scte. Losi's TI nitride coating hasn't lasted on my XXX shock shafts or my 22T shafts so why bother.

THANKS
Stock still best for racing, all others have a skid that will mess up ride height. just keep a spare handy, you won't get a DNF with a broken bumper.

they are sized differently than the stock ones though so you get freeer shock movement with them even when coating wears off, at least in my experience anyway,

There's no reason it shouldn't fit. You're doing something wrong.

Cut out the wheel wells and all around the body first. Then lay the body on top of the posts, line it up front to back, left to right. Mark the posts. Cut it out. Paint. Done.

It fits if you slightly mod the body posts. You just drill new holes for the swivel pads or what ever you call them about 5/16" lower or so. This gives you a little more post sticking up through the body. My front body posts on that body actually go through the make believe hood louvers.

Hey guys, just got done making a "custom" rpm creation. It used to be an rpm scte rear skidplate, but now its........a flat piece of plastic!!!!!!! Took a ton of dremeling to do this but had to be done since a ton of mud was caking back there.

You probably only really needed to taper the leading edge to keep it from hanging up.

I'm of the opinion that when racing, that's the worse thing you could do to the bottom of your chassis as all that skid plate is - is a friction brake every time it taps the track.

I am running the Proline Flo-tek Raptor body and it was a tight fit getting it behind the front bumper. Had to trim the ends off of the rear bumper to get it to set down properly.

Also had to drill new holes in the front body posts and lower the pivot pad mount down so I could get the body clip thru the post as mine came thru the louvered section too, which 'thickened' the body at that point.
