Default bulldog....

No, you do not need an adapter. You have to drill out the shock tower with a template that comes with the body, and then use the existing body mounts. This body looks SO kick a$$!!! Ran mine a couple of weeks ago and does make a difference. I'm not sure if it's perception, but it just felt better.Enjoy .

I got one when they first came out. Quality is good, the only problem I have is that the hole where the D plate goes into the chassis is not big enough. I had to trim the D plate set pin on both the KingHead and the Associated plates to make it work. Maybe they have fixed that by now but it sure is little bit of a pain in the ass.
When I got the BCE chassis I also went to the RTR plastic chassis braces. I honestly cant tell you if it improved the truck much, but it does have a cool copper color. Lol.. If you got the money go for it, if you think it will shave off seconds from your lap time probably notů

I used the proline template on my Jconcepts punisher body and it worked flawlessly. IMP it looks better than the blue mount. Plus its four 1/8 holes cant get easier than that.

Hi guys, just ordered an RC8T CE from amain and will probably reach my place next week, it is my first time running an associated 8th scale, any issues to watch out for, parts that I need to stock up. Ill be running it in a pretty blown out track with lots of bumps and doesn't have any big jumps what setup would you advice, should I go 7-7-7 or 7-10-3 for the diffs? Thank you very much in advance.

777. Gives the truggy a nice neutral feel that you can push for days. If you find that the rear end likes to wash out, drop it down to 5 in the rear.

Hey guys I need some opinions on upgrading my truggy ? I have FT RC8T but am looking at doing some upgrades like the CE version! Should I just buy the CE or can I just buy some upgrade parts and go from there? I raced this truck for a year and really its still in good shape I need a chassis but other than that its held up well ! What should I do ? Buy a Bce and upgrades or just get a whole new truck ? Thanks for any input

Is there still a tank issue? If so, what is a better tank MBX5T or the D8T? Or is there a better tank than those two out there?

Thanks
