Default LRP S8TX bodies

hi i was just wondering what sort of bodies i could use for the truggy?

i have the pro version (the standard chasis)

i have heard that people are using the MBX6T bulldog body but with the extended chasis.

would anyone have any ideas what to use?

cheers Mark

I ran a rc8t bulldog when I had the Z truggy and it fit nice with alittle trimming. I did have the extended chassis (22mmm longer I believe). I would think you could make it work with the standard chassis. Good luck.

cheers for the info Roscoe/

Like I had mentioned mark, the AE RC8T Bulldog is what I used on my zmxt8 (same as your lrp). I don't think that any of the bulldogs will fit any better than the next as all will require alittle handy work. It has been some time since I had mine but the losi bulldog with losi 8t 2.0 front body mounts might work the best. It would also eliminate the crater for the front body clips which is a pain with the rc8t and d8t bulldog bodies. Hope that helps.

They are $85 on atozrc.net. The chassis super light vs stock and makes the truggy easier to drive. Good $85 spent I think.
