Default Bulldog or Punisher?

The title pretty much says it all.

Ive got a RC8T CE and yesterday I cracked the Punisher body up pretty badly even though it was wrapped. It seems to me though that I more quickly crack the JConcepts bodies Ive had. I'd like to hear what you guys think about it.

Also I guess while we are on the subject I'd like to know what those of you who have tried the Bulldog buggy body think about it. I really dont care for the looks of it at all but if it really is worth it for handling I would consider running one.

Bulldog bod is far stronger. Handling wise, not sure how it compares to the Punisher. BUT, i have heard if you call J Concepts and let them know what is happening to your body... they MAY replace it

I have had both bodies and there is definitely a difference in the two. The Bulldog is made of a thicker lexan than the Punisher. I am currently running the Punisher on my RC8T CE, and haven'thad any problems with it cracking as of yet. I have deifintely beat the crap out of it. You just have to make sure the holes for the body mounts are elongated to allow for some flex. My buddy had the holes tight on his, and it cracked on the 1st or 2nd time out with it.
