    proline scale ford raptor body question

    ok so right now im running the desert malitia body on my slash. on 2s lipo ive never had much of a problem with the wind unless i was jumping, but on 3s lipo i litterly cant even go full throttle or it just flips over. ive been wanting to go with a truck body for awhile now and i was wondering how bad the parachuting problem was with the scale raptor body? i love the way it looks and everything, i just dont want the issues i have now. but i cant really see any truck body being as bad as a short course body. just looking for some input from those of you that have been there already.

    still going to be the same need to get the air out from under it which means holes in the body i would cut out the back window seen somewhere on here someone did that and also put some holes on the top of the bed and added screen to keep the big junk out

    to be honest i havent used it much yet. all i know right now is that its stupid fast and i think i need to re gear my car for it. which should put me in a safe zone for the 2s as well. but without the body i caught up to and started to pass traffic that was going 55mph lol

    been awhile since i had to deal with it but if my memory serves me right.............. if im running to hot i need a smaller pinion? i have multiple smaller sizes so that shouldnt be any sort of issue if so.

    well good to know i didnt forget everything............ cant say i remember what safe temps are though............ i know its either up to 170 for the motor or 270 but no clue which one. i want to say the 170 sounds more appropriate because the nitro is overheating at 270.
