See: Pro-Line

Pro-Line have introduced the new Monster Fusion Bash Armor Body for SC such as the Traxxas Slash or Slash 4×4 with 2.8″ MT tyres. The pre-cut Monster Fusion body uses ultra-tough Bash Armor material. It is twice as thick as regular Short Course bodies and is ultra-flexible to reduce the chance of cracking and shattering. Unlike clear polycarbonate, the Bash Armor material is white and is not paintable, so Pro-Line includes detailed decal sheets to complete the look. The Monster Fusion body has an aggressive, low-slung look with huge fender flares. The body is pre-cut, so you can spend more time doing what you love and features large vents to prevent high speed blow overs.
