i have a jconcepts punisher for the mbx6t on my zo1t, if you have the rc driver buggy & truggy spec. editon mag, you can see what it looks like on the zo1t in there.

The RC8T Bulldog will fit as well, but you'll need to do some modifications and rearranging of the body posts. I'm going to get a Punisher just to try out for my next body.

I've heard rumblings about the JC bodies cracking pretty easy, which makes me a bit leery. I know they replace them, but I'm going to be paying some cash for a custom paint job...there's no waranty coverage on that. Maybe my first one will be a simple rattle can job to see how durable it is.

i haven't cracked mine yet, it has a fastlane mask on it and seems to be holding up very well so far but sooner or later they all bust.

Especially if you flip a lot! Do they make a Kevlar reinforced body yet???? I could sure use one!

thanks for clearing that up. I didn't know it was only one particular model that was having issues.

In fact they are telling all D8T owners to put on the Losi body right now till they figure it out... One of our guys has one and it broke after 4 weekends and he is a very smooth driver that doesnt crash much at all.

I can confirm the durability of the JC bodies. I'm on 2.5 gallons so far and I'm far from nice to them!

I'm running an RC8 High Flow body on my OD. The only precaution I took was to use mesh drywall tape on the underside around the openings and where it might touch the pipe.
