For cold weather, coat inside of body with thin film of clear rtv silicoln. Makes the body more flexable.

Bill You don't need a new body I think it looked good. Besides just think what the body will look like after you get to run the truck more then 15 feet with the lipo pack.

No doubt packing tape, shoe goo, rtv silicone are all your friends when ya need to extend the life of an RC body!! Tape around the body holes too, to keep em from cracking or prevent cracks from growing..
