I don't know which one looks the best but proline bodies are generally thicker and last much longer than the hpi bodies..

I was looking at the proline more, the HPI has that funny forward slope.

The black on the front looks a little off black.  Is that just the picture or is it actually a super dark grey?  I like it.

Where are the mashers?  I was hoping to see them, I am building up a set right now for my XL.  What wheel/tire setup is on it in the pics?

Looks good, keep it up.
