Default Rate the bodies of RTR Monster Trucks

1. Monster GT - by far my favorite, especially in the blue color.

2. T-Maxx/Revo - I've seen several designs and I like pretty much all of them.

3. Savage - Simplistic design, but I kind of like that aspect of it.

4. TNX - Kind of bland, but OK.

5. LST - I'm buying this as soon as it comes out, but I'm not too impressed with the paint scheme.

6. Genesis - sort of ugly body design and the colors don't help.

7. Mammoth - Ugly. I wanted to buy this truck earlier in the year and didn't because I thought it was too ugly looking. Honest.

Truck bodys are personal taste. If I don't like the one that comes with the truck I just buy a clear body and paint it myself. Mike

You've got some questionable taste then.

does any one out there remember the old cox cars. that only ran on a string or just ran wild so you had to chase them. i would like to put a cox buggy or dune buggy body on my t-maxx. but other than e-bay i don't think they are avilable. we need to bring back the r/c past bodies that the older members remember to run on the newer trucks.

I think Traxxas' new S-Maxx has the nicest RTR body (and isn't that what this post is about....OF COURSE YOU CAN GET NEW BODIES!!):

It's the only big/beefy rounded STADIUM TRUCK body I've seen, and I think it's great!!


Here goes my FIRST picture insertion......

Really, 75 bucks? You did a good job and all, but its just parma paint mask, with two spray cans.
I admitt it came out nice, but for 25 bucks less then you want you can get a custom shell from a pro. with fades and multi colors and stuff. Again the only thing im bashing on is your price, and only because ive seen you try and sell them before on other threads.

I don't really care too much about bodies. I've seen all the trucks you've listed multiple times and I can't even recall what most of them look like. It's what's under the bodies that matter to me, and half the time I run mine without a body anyway. I wouldn't ever not buy a truck because of the look of the body.

I like the Atomik pre-painted bodies, since I can't paint very well, and I like the look of the Ford F350. I'd have to say that I like the stock Tamiya Black Foot body the best.

Yes the mad force body is one of the most best looking bodies out there.

My mad force bodies are just painted with spray cans and they are nothing special.
