Default Need a decent body for bashing !

After a new body for bashing, my hpi porsche cayenne lasted a whole 5 minutes before it started to give way, maybe avoid SUV types for bashing i think from now on, anybody any ideas ? savage 4.6 btw

Good answer , i was looking in the proline range at the truck shells they do ( not the SUV type ), looked at the chevvy silverado and the 150 ^.

proline bodies are much thicker then stock plastic and they flex a lot more before breakage.
