It probly will lay on the pipe. Every other body that
Proline has made to fit on the CRT's lay on the pipe
and melt, so I wouldn't expect them to change there
ways now. Proline has always made the worst fitting
bodies for the Jammin truggys. I'm going to wait and
see what JConcepts comes up with.

The headlight design for the stickers on that bulldog body looks exactly like a rip-off of the Jconcepts style. I liked the old pro-line headlights better.

diozxlive...The body is actually wider than the truck, like theres about a quarter inch gap of room on either side of the body. right now with a jp2 pipe on mine, the body doesn't even come close to touching the pipe. The engine head sits right in the flat bed too so nothing touches.

matt, the top hole goes down 17mm, also the front shocks need to be angled in one hole on the tower otherwise the caps rub a bit.

Thats another problem that I always had with the
Proline bodies. You have to change your shock set
-up to get the body to fit properly. You would figure,
a company that big would be able to do more r&d on
there products. There is no reason for them to throw
a half-arsed product out to the public.

a half arsed product, this body is not even for the X2CRt were mounting a RC8t body on a Jammin X2CRT, so these problems are just being noticed by us, on a proper chassis, these problems wouldnt occur

Looks like Kyosho 5mm, I run the same adapters. You just need the kyosho adapters and the kyosho wheel nuts. The Kyosho and Jammin have different threads.

One thing I noticed, after looking at those pics closer.. Looks like you should trim a bit off the back of the body next to the shock tower. Looks like it will but up against that shock tower when flexing and crack the body eventually.
