I know that a great deal of people here have them. I was wondering which ones were best to get. Thus far here's what I have seen...

Hotbodies
Cheetah
Shark Skinz
Armour Bodies (which I just found out about)

Which ones do you use and which do you recommend and why?

I have sharkskinz. They crash and repair pretty well as you saw in the tail white and blue tail section I showed you.

E-Racings racings are sharkskinz copies. They're thinner and not quite as durable, but a bit cheaper.

Stay away from pit-eck, or pit-tech or whatever they are. Stay even further away from Godfather panels. I've seen potato chips that have more rigidity.

I've heard good things
about:
Attack
Armour Bodies
