That 1/10 (I think) body looks an awful lot like the HPI bug body that was discontinued....... :angry:

Would that be because they're both based on the Volkswagen Beetle, by any chance? :lol:

Check the measurements first - the 2.2 shell will be pretty small in comparison to 'normal' 1/10 scale shells in order for it to be considered viable for competition crawling
For instance, Tower quote the wheelbase of the Stampede VXL as 10.827" but the 2.2 beetle shell WB is only 9.6"


Proline also make 2 bigger versions of the Beetle, although the front end is quite different;

if you look at the pics again you see how the body sits more between the tires than over them ; a style that only works for bug bodies

Huh? It's only 1 short line!
