Default "Tuff bodies"

where can i find these? i pm'd the guy that makes these, and he has not responded and has not been on for a long time, and i want one of these

these are those bodies that "never break", and he ran it over with his car and it still didnt break

maybe he has a email he checks more, or a site i can order it from

They should be on there if you search for tuff bodies. His store is through E-Bay, if you want to pay $50 for a mini-t body though.[:@]
Isn't his screen name '4lo'

yes is 4lo, i searched tuff bodies and i could not find any, 50$ IMHO is not bad, seeing that 1 body is about 45$ to get it painted and stuff, so 5-10$ more for a body that will never break but looks like **** is not that bad

But when you get a "painted body" its gonna be a awesome custom job. With these you are pretty much getting a super ugly undestructable body. By the way ugly is just my opinion because they really dont have a shape.

I'm a little interested but I don't need it. I would at least have to have a brushless motor to go fast enough to cause any damage. Right now, I bash with a bug body and I have done some pretty crazy stuff with it. I wouldn't pay more than $25 for one of those bodies.

I agree with Gex 61. I don't think I will ever need one of those "never break" body's. My stock bodies have held up fine to abuse, and they also look good. Just my opinion

I agree, it's cool, but how often does one break a body.

I bust the corner's out of mine fairly ofter, on both my MT's and mini's. I wish Homer would get his body's out though, those looked sweet.
