The Proline Crowd Pleaser 2.0 gets my vote. It looks real swift with nice lines - to my eye anyway

+1 on the j concepts illuzion body...I have several myself and like both the shape and the quality..the proline is nice too but you can only run low profile filters which I don't like.The j-concepts has the space for high volume filters.

I am painting up 3 different skull themed bodies. The costumer will chose the base color. The bodies are 1 of each. I my self like the low body[original] with the losi 2.0 filter system. I get my best run times 13 min's+ with that filter. Even in dusty conditions.

Going to try running the Dynamite brake linkage kit on the 808.
Seen these on a few cars now and the set up seems to work very well. It also eliminates the problem of the brake linkage levers getting close to the spur gear, and makes for easy brake trim adustments on the fly. Any one else tried this or a similar set up. I think someone was talking about a Kyosho set up similar to this the other day.

Not tried the dynamite linkage but I'd be more worried about hitting the body in the other direction than the spur gear.probably have to set it up to get the lengths right then trim off all the excess linkage length..looks a nice set up though.

Yeah, that's what most guys have done. Truggy is fine, but the rods can hit the body on a buggy unless trimmed depending on your set up. Worth a crack I reckon.

I tried that set up a while ago and I took it off. I don't remember if it was because the rods sit at a weird angle to the brake cams or if it was because the rods that slide into the cams themselves were too long or too short but it was not smooth and level like it should be. It was binding in two spots from what I remember and was more trouble than it was worth to try and get it all smooth and level

thats set-up is not really anything like the kyosho set-up. the kyosho set-up that we use is the set-up right of the mp9/wc777/st-rr which instead of using fuel tubbing it uses a small spring for a more consistent feel
