I broken the front part before I took the fotos!!!
I used a cutter to cut through the line once, in 1/2 the thickness oh the body, and then tear it with hand. It's works very very well (including the shock tower part) and the body looks more perfect after I filed the edges with sandpaper.

After that I made the holes for the posts and tried to fit the body on the car, as same as the kyosho body, the front part must be turned 90 degree ( or squeeze ) to pass the shock tower, maybe the material is too hard to bend ( and little bit crunch...) several cracks appears....... :mad:

Finally I cut the front part away and forget the cracks...........sigh

Looks good. You can just use some Shoe Goo or some other kind of silicone glue/sealant to glue the front piece onto the front gear box and it will look better than not having it. You should be able to peel it off when you need to get into the gear box.

Did you have to move your electonics around to get the new body to fit? I got a proline body and just finished the paint job and now i have to move my electronics around because there doesnt seem to be as much room under the proline body as there was on the stock one. the front end is giving me trouble to fit on also.i see you just cut yours off. I 'll post some pics tomorrow of the new body and let ya'll tell me what you think. it looks kinda hack to me but its my first try at painting since 1990. love your color combination.

Yea, I tried few combinations before I apply tapes, finally I placed RX at the rear end of the sapce and ESC "standing" in front of RX, with its base touching RX.
(haven't take any photos inside the body since I moved the stuffs :p )

U may want to cut away the heatsink post if U need more room.
