Default Body for D8T

Hi,
Quick question regarding bodies for the D8T... in the reviews of the Pro Line Bulldog body they talk of drilling the shock tower..??? Why is that? Anybody got any experience with these? Thanks!

actually the punisher body has been out for a while. I like the bulldog body a little better. but you have to drill (2) more holes in the "front" shock tower so that you can raise the body posts slightly higher, they supply you with a template for hole location, its necassary in order to get the nose to drop down so that the pin holes peek through past the body.

I've heard too many horror stories about the Jconcepts body cracking first time out because the plastic isn't thick enough near the front mounts. Plus I like the Bulldog body better. Read my post above, you don't have to drill the towers if you use the Losi 8T mounts. It was either Jesse Robbers or Ty Tessman that posted the info on rctech.

He also said you can use the Jconcepts Losi 8T body, (with the flat hood)you just have to drill the mount holes on the bodyin a different location than stock.

the reason why that happens is because they dont notch out the holes to give it room to flex and such. personally i think the bulldog is uglier than the stock on, i like everything on the bulldog body except the front of it. so i got a punisher body. i will have it friday or next week.

I like the stock body, just wish it was a little thicker.
