D28, that tail is terrible imo.

An undertail is personal. What someone likes another may not. I have posted an undertail thread I thought was a good overall setup. And great value compared to some others. If you read the thread you'll see my thoughts. The big things are where and how to mount a plate, using a plate light it if you want to be legal, and integrated or separate signals. https://www.rc51forums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=8435

Then there are personal choices, such as LED, integrated or separate signals, etc.

Don't cut your stock fender to do it either. PM me and I'll buy your stock fender if it is uncut. lol.

if you have an already cut battery tray then no, it just a matter of lining it up and securing it, i left the wiring up to a shop because i wanted it done properly. fits up very nicely and cleans up the already big butt of the RC

This is a huge can of worms you just opened Daytona, next you'll want the brighter led tail lights (which I do).

I don't know what type mine is, fits ok, just needed a little coaxing and has the round tail lights with built in turn signals aka indicators. will snap a pic as I just finished putting it back together after 3 months stripped down in the garage, infact it might be a Bestem.

when did you purchase your undertail? mine is ~july 2013 production, apparently they revised them with brighter LEDs in jan 2013

i do know the hotbodies did have a issue with the LEDs not being bright enough, but the bestem looks identical and the bestem isnt marked as far as i can tell
