The cab needs to be about a half inch lower, its almost too tall,

That's a sick looking body. I was going to buy the Pro-Line Bulldog body whenever it was released for the MBX6 but after seeing this I will definitely buy the J-Concepts body, and I have always preferred JC anyway so this is awesome!

I have mixed emotions on this one. While I like the front half of it, it seems like they ran out of time on the back and just squared it off a little to much. But I think it would look real cool if painted up like a fighter jet.

ok, body design aside (since i bet its not the final version)....how did they achieve that matte black look?!?! seems like the body is sanded or something..look at the windows, and compare it to the blue and orange one with the killer paint job. is this how it is achieved? something like this has been floating around in my head for a while now. i just cant see that painting the outside is the only way...and that blurry window part on the black one hints at it. or is it just me?

Body looks great, The guys at JConcepts really know how to make a product look good as well as its performance on the track. Also the "forward cab" design is nowhere near as far front as the proline body and I bet this would pass under the roar rules.

IF YOU HAVE A SAND BLASTER, PAINT THE INSIDE, PEEL THE MASKING OFF THE OUTSIDE AND SAND BLAST EVERYTHING YOU WANT TO STAY MATTE

Yup... if you look at the windows it looks like that is probably what was done.

Hmmm... this actually somewhat resembles a real racing buggy. They are very angular...
