    New Body

    My daughter has inherited, my son's mini Summit, my son has inherited my Stampede 4x4 but I still have my Slash, for now! Anyway my daughter wants a "car" body for "her" Summit, preferably one she can paint. What are the option?

    You are really limited as far as Summit width bodies.
    These are all I can think of off the top of my head...

    Proline VW Baja Bug
    Proline Ford Raptor
    Proline Slipstream
    Proline Rat Rod
    Proline Desert Militia
    JConcepts Illuzion HiFlow
    Traxxas Revo body

    (just realized I have all but 2 of the ones listed above.lol)

    Nice.

    Working on a Mummit build right now which will be one that my daughter is going to drive. She likes Beetles and that looks real good.

    How is the durability? I have read that Proline bodies are generally not as durable as Jconcepts. Is that true?

    In my opinion...that is absolutely true.

    Although I've seen some people abuse the heck out of the PL Baja...and have it last...mine seems fragile...and cracked the first time I flipped it on the roof.

    That's why my Merv has a JConcepts Illuzion Hi Flow body,and my daughters Merv has a Traxxas Prographix Revo body.

    can you supply a part number. Want to make sure I get the right one. I would love a jeep body to mimic the real 1:1 I own. Have you had any luck on finding a Jeep body for the full size summit. I know one existed but I think has been discontinued. Any help would be appreciated.
