In terms of looks, it looks pretty nice overall. I like the Proline logo between the body posts, and on the screw caps. The car also looks much better with the screw caps than the body clips in my opinion, and it also looks much more solid (and not flimsy). I use this with the stock Traxxas Slash body and have the rear set all the way down (the body posts are very long in the rear), which makes it look a bit odd, but it clears the suspension arms even with the shocks are completely compressed, so it is well thought out!
I originally thought that the screw caps were all plastic, but the threads inside the cap itself is metal, so it will not strip unless you are really cranking on it (really no need to screw it that hard). Once installed, with the body on, the o-ring (wedged between body post and screw cap) provides plenty of friction so that the screw cap won't back out, but also has enough give, that it is easy to take off.
Quality-wise, the parts were machined very well, and fit together perfectly without any issues, which made it a breeze installing it. *(there are no instructions included, but it is easy to figure out, plus Proline also made a video for how to install it).
I think the best thing about this is that Proline offers replacement parts for this (everything separately), so you do not have to get a second set when only a small part malfunctions.
Overall, I would definitely say that this is a great product, and that I would definitely buy another if I had another Slash.
