Those would be the ones I would get if I were you.

Question.....

What truck do you have? The bodies you listed are different sizes. The E-Maxx body is a few inches longer than the Rustler bodies.

Great question guys...

I like them all, which is why it's a difficult decision.

Right now I have a Caldera 10E with a Stampede body. The Stampede body is bit short. It's 15 1/2 inches long and just under 5 inches tall.

The Caldera body is just over 17.5 inches long and 5 inches tall.

I think the E-Maxx might be a better fit over the Rustler, but I don't know the measurements of either one.

Here is the truck before (Caldera body) and after (Stampede body).

I found measurements on everything above and they'll all fit. Nothing is smaller than what I have (Stampede) on it now.

The TopKick and Raptor are out b/c they're both 20" or more in length. The Caldera being 17.5", I don't want to go much longer than that. The E-Maxx looks like the next longest at 18", so that one and rest should be fine.
