    Wow dude! That's what I call workin a body. Mine looked that way when I decided to see if it would fit in a storm gutter. Luckily it was only wedged in there. I yanked it out and the body popped back in place.

    Pop it back in place, shoe goo and duck tape works wonders for an old basher body. You be surprised how many heads it turns.

    Thats awesome, it looks like a real car would if it was in an accident. At $35 a body, I hope mine never look like that!!!

    That's a well used body Somaj

    I remember when we all got our Rallys when it came out, and we questioned the body and durablility as it seemed pretty flimsy, I would say it's on par with pretty much most of the other Traxxas bodies I have had. Mine has taken a pretty good beating and going well so far, I did put a few spots of shoe goo and tape.

    Given that the body looks like it does and not one single part broke (except the slipper) ....I give props to the model's durability.

    My Rally after a few couple months. I decided since I was tracking this car a lot, and the front bumper was digging into the ground, to go a head and install the truck bumper since this body was destroyed anyways.... Here is a dirty picture
    .

    and a picture of it cleaned up.
