yup.....front body post holes line up about spot on.... youll need to move the rear body posts down on the tower and dont trim on the side pod trim lines. you need to leave a little extra material

I dont see any reason why it would not fit just take your time measuring and it will fit nicely.
I got one fitted my X2 CRT and fits really nice.

Neil you have to drill holes in your rear shock tower (lower) to make the bull dog body fit. See the Mugen shell up in the pic with the body pins at the front . This is why i went the RC8T shell as the bonnet is a different shape and works better with the body pins....




See the difference in Jakes to the top pic... Not saying its not going to work but the RC8T defiantly fits better. You have to remove the rear shock tower and drill it on the drill press to get a nice neat job.

Yes i run these only on grass or astro.
You have to drill one or two new holes in the rear shocktower.

The mbx6t punisher and bulldog bodies will both fit. You can actually use the stock rear body mounting holes and posts on the tower but it will look better if you will lower them down some I used the 6t rear body mounts and mounted them lower on the tower the rc8t body is wider than the Xray and the 6t body will fit better I have tried both and the 6t bodies are alot better fit

Which tires are those? Do you run these on astroturf/gras?

Hi they are Panther Meat grinders stretched and glued up on AKA rims and foam. They take some time to do but once done they turn your Truggy into a weapon on the Astro or Grass.

I have the MBX6-T Punisher on mine and it fits great. Just don't cut the body on the lines or else it will be short in some places and long in others. Just leave everything big when you're cutting it out and trim it to fit as you go.

Yes, I drilled mine with 0 issues. Use a sharp bit so it cuts well and doesn't cause it to crack or anything like that.
