Thanks guys...looks like the 8.2 bodies fit better than the mp9 ones. I kinda had to "stretch" the mp9 body on mines and seems like the front bulges out a little. I think I'm gonna try a FTW or a Bitty force for the 8.2. I just wanted to fit an old mp9 one I had laying around and try others before I send it to the painter.
Thanks again!

Havent been able to run the buggy lately due to work but got to run some tanks through today. I am really liking the buggy so far and getting it closer to handle the way I like it. I had one issue though. I noticed that the rear has a lot of up travel, causing the universals to pop out of the outdrives. I didnt notice this and and really thought it was too much droop. It actually caused the outdrive to chip and tore the metal bushing in the diff cup. I ended up using fuel tubing to limit the uptravel on the shock shafts as a quick fix but now seems to limit the travel and the rear gets kicked around more. Anyone else had this problem? At full compression, the unis are just about at the very edge of the outdrives. I've shimmed the axles as much as could but still.
Though like I said, I'm really starting to love this buggy.
I've also tried the NGD Racing tapered 1.3x6 pistons. Amain was out of the CSI ones and the NGD ones work great. Still curious to see how the CSI ones compare to these though.
Great job Intech!
