    I'm interested in a new body but can't decide on a proline or clear stock.

    i would take a clear body so you can do your own thing but the problem is i can't find a lot of them so i don't see much different bodies that would fit my slayer and even aftermarket stuff only by traxxas so ... if i can only find traxxas stuff it aint worth it buying a body since it'll still look the same only different color

    Look at bodies for the 3.3 Revo. The revo uses the same chassis as the slayer pro.
    I wanted to put a really cool signature but I ran

    yeah but the revo isnt the style i am looking for i'm wanting to keep the SC style bt just a diffrent look of the body and something i can paint myself but i have found another problem.

    I'm pretty confused about how the darn things are measured :s

    Yep the Proline Flo-Tek fits pretty decent if you can find em. I have one on my E-SlayerPro4x4. Fits great.
    Another option that fits a tad on the large side of things is the SC8/SC8e body.

    yeah the Flo-tek is sucha shame that proline discontinued it now just waiting for the bodies to arrive the SC8 body is an option but when you crash the bumper is now behind the shell and there is still space so it'll crack easely so its an option if you only drive on a flat surface and don't do wild things with it

    I dont think i ever ended up with the bumper behind the shell on my SC8 body. Then again i trimmed the bumper so that i could lower the body and it fit very well to the bumper. Had it a bit lower than this in the end, no problems at all.
    Other people have mounted it a bit different though, so that may have led to some of their issues.

    it looks cool but if you didn't trim the bumpers it would go over. still need to buy a bit more supplies before i can paint my first shell still need everything to airbrush that thing but it's already cut out

    I have seen people mount the body ahead of the bumper as well.

    All comes down to personal preference. Would be much better if there was more options. The Flotek works great but you almost need to run original slayer arms to avoid rubbing.

    Isn't that the same as the Proline bodies for the Slash 4x4, they will fit but you have to cut the holes for them?
