My young lad uses them on his Xray 808 and XT8. He defiantly noticed a difference in the Truggy with jumping and high speed sweepers more so in the jumping side. The buggy was another story he said no difference as the front shock tower causes turbulence over the body so you don't really get the full effect with the down force, It did give us cooler temps tho with the XT8 & 808.

I have the bull dog body for my buggy. I ran a J Concepts illuzion hi flow body before. I couldn't tell much of a difference between the two other than the bull dog body feeling really thin and not near as durable as the JC body. I switched back to the JC body and soon going to order the new punisher!

I love the bulldog body on my MP9, since they don't make them for the MP9 I made a couple very minor cuts and different body holes and she fit right on there. The body works great, it has a few minor cracks because it rubs on a few things that the rc8b wouldn't. The only performance differences I have noticed is the cooler engine temps. Some guys said they got faster lap times!! Come on what's the average speed on a track 10-20mph, maybe Jared Tebo level of racer but the average club racer no.

Shoe Goo the body it will save it for the most part, the J Concepts punished won't hold up any better ( I have both and both have minor cracks). Ive been running my bulldog for about 10-12 races. I love the way it looks. The Punisher doesn't cool the motor the way the bulldog does, but it does look sick too.

I have to agree, the lexan doesn`t seem to be very strong, having put
the bulldog body on my RC8T, and the first race meet with it on, had a
small altercation with another car(not a very hard hit), and I noticed a
crack in middle of front wheel arch, running horizontal up to bonnet
area(front) bout 2 inches long( not happy)......

oblong the holes in the back and make the holes for the front mount a little bigger then they need to be..
