Default Proline Bulldog body

Has anyone used the proline bull dog body? I'm getting it I like how it looks but I'm a little leary of the claims. Just wondering if there just trying to sell items by hype. Thanks

I just like the way they look on my losi. The buggy body is great. The truggy body is ok but they should last longer than the stock bodies. The performance upgrades I don't think I'm skilled enough to notice. I like them because they are different.

1. i think that it will make your engine run cooler because there is more air blowing on it.

2. it might, make jumping better espially when its a windy day and theres more air flow going onto the wing.

and for, everything else i dont think any of us club racers will even notice.

Default Proline wing

Is anyone running the Proline High downforce wing? That looks like it could really help with keeping the rear planted.

I use the Proline wing on my truggy and it works well. I ran the Bulldog body on my buggy....IMO, I just hate the way it looks.

The Bulldog body does help a lot with the engine cooling, one downside to the body that I've noticed is if you run a D+E tank pull on the truggy body you could have your tank lid pulled open if you flip over and slide on your lid due to the design of the "hood" and windshield area. The losi 2.0T tank pull works well and is not prone to pulling the tank open. I had that happen a couple of times and ran out of fuel during a run. It's not a reason to not run the body but it is something to watch out for.

When losinwent to the 2.0t body I had all kinds of issues with the tank pulling open. I like to drive on my lid haha. Since I use the losi pull that dosent happen any more. I still drive on my lid but I don't lose any fuel.
