Losi sells a body VERY VERY similar to that(if not THE body). The Losi body is stocked everywhere and sells for $40.

The Losi body won't fit a sc truck. The stalker body is made just for the sc late model class. Plus Losi bodies look like blocks of cheese and fair from the quality and handling of the stalker.

The losi body fits every sc truck, I have two! The losi body looks realistic, the macalister is a good low slung body for running on high grip tracks but is a lil fugly for my tastes.

The Losi body looks like a snow plow. Very unreal looking but to each is own. I can promise you stalker is the #1 body on the market for a reason. It's on 90% of the cars at the chili bowl and that ain't just cuz of looks. It's far more functional than any other body

Must be someone trying like hell to sell some bodies, that look fictional I might add! Dirt latemodels are not streamlined, low slung machines. They have some serious angle in the wind carrying surfaces to catch downforce, also; Real latemodels are driven by people up to 300#, and they dont use a roof/funny car hatch to get in and out, they use the window. I dont know that many people could get through a 14 inch drivers window which is how most of the "functional" rc representation bodies are. The losi is a shovel because the real cars are a shovel. It's top heavy, but looks right to someone who spends 30+ weekends a year at the dirt track.

Just my two cents lacking sense

Man your so right. My bad I thought these looked pretty close. This guys head must be huge cuz his HELMET is almost taking up the whole window.

So yeah I'm my bad I don't know anything. Oh and I have nothing to do with stalker bodies except I purchase all my bodies from them.

The real car pic looks just like the losi body or shovel as you call it. Their is a significant difference in nose angles on the stalker vs real car. The only reason Im arguing is based on the fact that EVERYONE that owns a late model loved the losi body. As soon as they showed up to the local track and everyone was running the other bodies they immediately lost intrest because they didn't want to have to by a goofy looking body to be competitive.

Their is a huge difference in roof proportion/perception when there isnt plastic covering the drivers window.
