How about "semi pre painted bodies"? With 1/8th onroad they have the bodies with flames pre-painted and then the rest of the body clear.

In my opinion I think this is a great idea for 1/8th off road and more so 1/10th on road as well.

i love the proline bulldog body, and does crack i certain areas (truggy) ive learned to dremel about 3/16 above trim lines above wheel (wheel wells), takes alot of stress off and prevents cracking, so instead of making a thicker heavier body, i suggest just moving trim lines on current one. just my opinion!

I think that the VTR series truggy tires and wheels have been one of the best products that have released in a while.. The Calibers are absolutely incredible. As everyone has mentioned before, i would like to see a stronger Bullydog body and some new VTR tires. Especially the Recoil's.

just to add, a new 2.2 comp crawler tire would be nice, your chisel tire does not work

Some people are asking for tougher bodies. I think it would be a mistake to make thicker (and heavier) ones. Years ago I went from a standard .040" body to one that was .060" or maybe more. It was a mistake. The body flexed so much less, that it cracked right away. Perhaps a tougher material, with flex could be found. Super lexan.

How much weight would you estimate that adding? Just curious...

Stock losi bodies out last PL or JC 2 to three times with my crashing prone style of driving...lol

Take a .040 piece of lexan and bend it in half, it will crease but not crack now do that with an .125 piece, it will snap. Thicker doesn't me tougher!

You are 100% correct on the lexan.. Something other people can't seem to grasp.. Bigger is always better mentallity I guess..

I posted on the first page about it... I just said stronger, not thicker, I don't know how you would go about it but if they can be strengthened it would be great.

Yes it would be great. Both of my bull dog bodys for my buggy cracked during the first race weekend on each body. It just feels so flimsy.

Tires for truggy... Wish the price was alittle more affordable. Spent over a grand on tires and the wife is not liking that, hate to see people have to make a decision between tires and racing...... Maybe a tire that dont wear so fast, may not be for the big racers but for the new to novice guys that would be great.

Ive never personally owned a Bulldog truggy body but have seem them crack and fall apart FAR too soon in their life, Losi truggy body's are BY FAR the most durable body on the market currently.

please make a bulldog body for the xray 808 '10 not the mugen bulldog body it doesnt fit like it was made for the car. I really want one specific to the 808. And make your high downforce wings out of a little higher density plastic so they are stiffer they are too flimsy right now.
