I give tremendous credit to large scale RC and there staff, there great and MCD makes only the highest grade 5th scale, my opinion none compare in durability, but I have to say, why did they go with such an ugly body.
Again this is just my opinion, but it seems this body is found on the Nutechs, redcats and other cheaper made cars, I think its a disappointment if you ask me.
I wish somebody would come out with something original and not cheesy like that body they offer now.

well as for the shortened proline desert rat body, looks like a v4 truggy to me. sorry guys but i thought short coarse wheels and tires were inside the body not out like a truggy.

No because there is no current V4 Baja1000. It is Identical to a V4 Racerunner though in drive & chassis & suspension. It's a Baja1000 like V4, I guess you could call it.

I did see the proto & the one move in tighter. I'm sure a good engine & pipe make a big difference. Nothing like overpowering everything ... It's WONDERFUL !

This is the closest I have to an underbody shot. It is 4wd & from what I understand is made off of like the RC8 1/8th scale buggy platform. This is the original Prototype Robn64 has now.
