Default Losi 8T 2.0 Bodies

Well time for a new body. made the mistake of cutting the window out square and not rounding the corners. The A Pillar is falling apart. Anybody have any recommendations on which body style to get. Here's what I found so far:

JConcepts Punisher
Team Losi 7
Proline Shift
Proline Bulldog 2 / -1

I prefer the PL Bulldog.

A lot complain of it breaking in the rear, but I've never had an issue. I've run the same body for most of the season.

Otherwise the stocker is good.

The JC Punisher is wider/flatter than the others. It looks more "truck" like to me.

I just dis some bulldog bodies and they have not fared well. I have some stock losi bodies that are over a yr old and still going. These proline bulldog bodies are cool looking but the e truggy body already cracked in 1/2 and the buggy body isn't going to last long. I have never cracked a buggy body but this one is 2 months old and cracked. I would stick with the losi bodies plus they come cut out. Just my exp.

+5 on keeping the stock losi body. I also think it is the strongest of them all.

Well it was nothing that a little sheet rock tape and shoe goo couldnt take care of but still I think the stock bodies are the strongest.

This is what you said right? "Never really", dont say if they cracked or not. I wanna know if the bodies are any good.

Out of 4 Losi bodies, I can say for sure they have not cracked or broken on me....
