Best brand of track plastics

I'm looking to buy track plastic for my R1, what's the best fitting one out there? HOT BODIES SUCK!!! I want the paint surface to be good also. I've been looking at ARMOUR BODIES.

The best is Sharkskinz. Period. You can get them pre drilled and fitted with fasteners. Nothing else fits better. They are almost $1,000.00 though.

They hold up great. They are definitely the best. Made here... in Florida I think. Next would be Attack. Then probably Armour Bodies. Most of the rest is a bunch of china stuff that may or may not fit. Optimal is the best of the cheap stuff, IMO. Although I've heard of factory composites or something on ebay that has decent fitment.

You can probably get a racer discount from them ordering direct. 25% off. Otherwise maybe Patrick, Tony Ta or someone could do better.

You can find decent take offs from racers with minimal damage that can be used again in my experience. Usually at 20-35% of new pricing. I only have experience with the optimal set I had but they held up to some decent abuse.
