wow, that's a tough one... I doubt you would get two aswers the same. In off-road, there are so many variables with the suspension travel and free play, I doubt it's possible to provide an answer. We just eyeball it. Set the car down and look at it from above. If you have a very slight amount of toe out, you should be good. If you can tell the difference between .5 & 1 degree of toe out, you better get yourself to Thailand and run the Worlds.

sounds like you need a setup station...go get one and let us know what the measurements are so we can stop using our eyeballs.

a setup station nice to have when you have already bought one (like i did) but when you look at it it's allot of things that i would have bought before the setup station...

A setup station is quite expensive though, maybe just using eyeball for now
I have more question guys, what is the use of making the car stiffer? like using alu chassis braces, and have you try AKA enduro for outdoor and slightly dusty track? how it feels?

Yeah. The bulldog body will work on the MP9. Pay close attention when you cut it out though. The holes for the body mounts are not the same. The hole for the rear mount has to be moved toward the rear. Do not cut the rear top line of the body until you fit it to the buggy. The lines at the front and rear change but it doesn't take that much modification. Good luck.

Sorry guys the link below will show u the body, iPad junk won't copy and paste the right image code! .


Proline RC8 bulldog, yes the body holes are different rest of the lines are close, I have alsomfitted the punished rc8 body on my buggy no pictured yet tho, the punisher needs a little more work to make it work, be care cutting out fuel opening hole, and engine hole, engine hole needs to be more forward not as far backl pictures will b up later.

To be honest maybe on the steering I don't see a difference tracks around here the pros average lap speed is 11-12mph. There is a difference in engine cooling, no lie My engines run about 10-15 degrees cooler average, my ninja used to run about 230-235 and with the new body 210-220, and when I switched fuels average 200 with the same power.

I think the body looks great, fits great, and increases performance, to bad they are roar illegal.

i think the new tk2 body will do just about the same... or i hope at least.

According to our importers here in Sweden we will have the tk2 on the 13th of august. So i guess thats about when it gets available in europe.
I'm sure getting one!
