Default SCT Bodies

I'm driving an SCT410 and there pretty heavy and I'm pretty shitty behind the wheel lol. I need a SC body that's gonna hold up longer then one night at the races. Current body is the JC F-250 and I would like something stronger. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

JC Illusion Nissan Tittan (JCO0250)
The standard one is thicker than most other stock bodies.
They do offer a light weight version jco0250L

I have seen a thin fiberglass mesh attached to the inside of the weak areas, to help with support.

Proline Evo bodies have a design that seems less prone to developing cracks like most SCT bodies. I'm not sold on the thicker=more durable idea.

This exact question was already asked. The title is even the same? Sho goo when they are brand new, wheel wells doors high stress areas. Look at an old cracked body put sho goo on the new body in those spots. When the body finally does crack go get some low profile dry wall tape put the tape over the crack(on the inside of the body) then sho goo over it. it will not crack there again.

What about the FTW bodies? They seem pretty stout?

Evo and FTW SC bodies seem the strongest to me. Don't cut any air-holes in your scenario and get some ShooGoo and some drywall mesh. There is some flexable, adhesive backed yellow stuff out there that I have seen work the best.
Apply a thin layer of shoogoo, then press a piece of the drywall mesh into it. Let it just start to tack up and then apply another layer of shoogoo over that. Bulletproof. Took about a year of driving SC before my bodies started lasting as well. Stick with it and pretty soon they will last much better.
