    Traxxas Skully Body

    Hi, I own a Skully and I've trashed the body.

    I would get another Skully body, but it doesn't look that good anyway.

    What would be a good replacement? I don't mind if I have to order different mounts.

    I like using the Rustler bodies on my P2de. The stock Traxxas Rusty shell is tough as nails - - - I know - - - I crash - - - a lot!

    Actually the skully and cranian bodies are fairly tough. Easily stronger than most aftermarket bodies and the previous monster jam bodies. The upper portion of the tops are thicker and the areas that take the most impact are thick and rounded. In sharp contrast to say the Maximum Destruction body which ,unfortunately, had angles at the points of impact and the top was uniformly thin. Both aspects led to fast deterioration with repeated crashes, tumbles and rolls.

    Grave diggers rounded design was better, but neither was as durable as the craniac / skully design.
    MAN, Use Common Sense.

    I love this shell but it is by far the weakest I've ever encountered. The entire side is loose, like a flapping open door. Those sharp angles are its Achilles heel. Bummer.

    I don't remember if you can. Getting custom with mounting is not difficult.

    I've just bought a Bigfoot (silver) body for my son and a clear proline Silverado shell for me, seems like there are plenty of options out there.

    Yes. I just eyeballed a Rustler body on my Stampede chassis. You have to move the body forward about an inch until the rear mounts rest on the flat part of the Stock Rustler body. Mark and drill your holes, then mark and drill the new holes for the front. Should work for most after market bodies too. Anything can be mounted. I like the way the Rustler bodies look and have run them on Stampedes.
