    Default Losi 5ive shell options

    So chaps, after using my 5ive for about 5 or 6 tanks of fuel, I've given it a clean and checked everything over, I've noticed quite a lot of crumpled bits in the shell... Quite disappointing for a shell that's about 200 to buy!
    So, what options are there for aftermarket ones, that are tough and still look like a SCT?
    Freeprawn has Losi ones on sale at the moment for 125, but that's a fair chunk of cash, plus painting on top and decals too, to just break.
    Only thing on the whole truck I'm a little disappointed with.
    Obviously idea would be to run without the shell, which I might end up doing, eventually.
    But for now I'd like some recommendations please

    That 30N shell is a tough one. A lot of people are using it and it comes with limited warranty.
    Difficult to get a black one at the moment.

    Not keen on that one, cheers though chaps.
    I don't like the idea of it painted on the outside and they aren't fully clear, so that's a no go for me.

    Funnily enough Ian, I keep looking at buggies and thinking I quite fancy some of that, but can't seem to locate any kind of conversion kit, so I'm assuming folk who do it, just buy each part needed (which I'm not sure of)
    Must admit some of those wraps do look fairly good, especially that Martini one.
    Shame there's no photos of them fitted though.

    I like the grafil shell, those high arches also help in exit of debris instead of inside the truck.

    They have helped quite well for the brca guys in racing as well.

    Another option is Grafil, I'm just not too familiar with who stocks them in the UK though.
    I know I'll probably end up running without a shell.
    Failing that, I'll add about 20kg of Shoe Goo to this one and hope for the best

    We have Penta body on our 5t as well. Fitment is not all that good. Just about as tough as the original body. The good thing is you can run without fenders on the Penta.

    Going by the videos you've posted i'd go with the Klei Ni shell. Stronger than the rest.
