Proline Bulldog is on A-Main but what's with the $29.49 price? All the other Bulldog buggy bodies are $21.99...

I have one coming, thanks for the heads up.

I have many Tresrey parts. Usually their stuff are made perfectly. I wonder if it is by design or an overlook.

Oh n yes to add another question if u guys do not mind.
Do u guys tighten the nut of the rear wheels very tightly?
When I do tighten the screws tight or after a certain notch, my wheels tend to lock and so r my gears too. Any idea why? Or am I suppose to not tighten e nut too much?

you want the rear wheels tight but not super tight as it will cause alot of binding and tracking issues.

So, I decided to slow myself down last night and raced "blinky" stock buggy to nail down a basic setup. I was really happy with how my car felt all round except for one thing... Corner exit, I could pull away enter and exiting sweepers and S's but on the 180* corners it was a loading the rear and pushed hard. I dont have a setup sheet filled out yet but will soon. I run Losi red F / yellow R and 4 hole pistons 1.3 all round. 22 / 27.5 . Protek shorty all the way forward. No weight up front ( I am leaning towards that as my problem). Thoughts, I have plenty side bite and forward bit, a stiffer rear spring? Thoughts?

Put one or two axle shims between the hex and the bearing and that should solve your issue. You're compressing the hex against the bearing and binding it.

Harder rear spring will help. If you're running any outboard toe that might be it too. Outboard toe locks the rear down on power and can cause understeer.

Or, increase caster, I have run 35* caster with great success. I run 30* now though. Plenty of steering all through.
