Back when I had my ST-1 running... it was a fun engine and a nice step up from the stock engine. I do have to say though that it is one fuel PIG if you don't tune it right. My favorite though is the Mach 427 teal head engine with the Losi Sport pipe. That was insane [X(] helped to have fuel economy also

Right now my poor car sits waiting its final fate. Ive debated getting it running or selling it off for parts... to bad a brushless conversion is still a bit of $$ even if I did make a motor mount for it [&:]

I got it with a ton of miles on it, and some good compression. Ran it till I said "worn enough" and got a new piston and sleeve. Sadly though the wrist pin retainer broke after 1 gallon and RIP lil engine ... imagine my horror changing the glow plug after break-in and seeing a nicely marred piston and sleeve

what did you order another bulldog? im in the market for another myself one for the shelf that is then ill continue to put miles on this one so you didnt do anything with the front mounts at all? i was concerened with it working because it looked like it was going to fall right on a body line and not let it set flush maybee ill put them back when i do the next one so i can mount the post with both screws.. how did your sides fit do you have to pull the body out to go over the sides of the chassis? and last of all is that body for a MBX6T and i agree this is by far the best RC ive ever drivin and ive owned quit a few and with the lrp its so fun to drive my fuel jugs just keep going empty ive burnt a gallon through the LRP in 1 week that might not be alot to some but thats alot to me this thing just adores odonnell speed blend 30% loves it What do you guys run in your LRP

Posts are in there original spots never moved them, Never had problems with the sides this body fits perfectly with no mods except the cutting out and a few drilling holes, Must say they are a weapon with an lrp, We use AT RACING FUEL heard of it before im running 25% drinks like a blown v8 but runs cooler and better

I thought that the MBX6T (part #3318-60) would get a better fit but I'm gonna try this one (RC8T)

The RC8T bulldog fits like a glove! Will have pictures up of how I mounted it, fairly simple btw! Mounted the front body post on the rear of the front shock tower. My truggy also has 17mm Big Bores on it. January 1st pretty big race and I will be the only thunder tiger there

It looks good. Can you take some pictures of the body mounts and how you did the rear of the body?

what are those shocks off of? and the body looks great was trying to think of a way to do my next one to sit flat like yours does i ended up just using the stock rear mounts on my first but im probably going to try n do something similar on my next could you get pics of your mounts on the rear closeups if you can but yeah looks great did any of you guys try the upper front a arms from the st1 pro out they look a little bit bulkier than the stock st1 arms

I have the pro arms on mine and they are definitely a better design. Less flex then the standard arms
