    Body Mount Post mod

    I Did a search for this and couldnt find anything... so maybe this has been brought up and maybe not.

    While waiting for my batt packs to charge, I was looking over the vehicle and saw some flexing on the bumper / body post mount piece. And the end result of the flexing pushed the bottom of said posts down onto and in the way of the front suspension rockers.

    Easy fix... just move the posts up one notch within its mount. Thus giving some breathing room for the rockers. And it doesnt throw off the look of the body from stock level.

    Perhaps its not significant to the travel of the rockers, but it just erked me that the rockers could be held back from doin what they do and limiting the function of the mini E-Revo.

    Anywhoo, just some food for thought and heres a pic (kinda blurry.. but it shows the left post moved up a notch and the right at stock level).

    I've never pay attention to that but I did move the posts up the very first thing before I started playing, was trying to give it more air flow towards the motor and ESC that way

    I ground the posts flush with the bottom. I broke the part that holds the posts taking the quad at the track. The repacement comes with both front and rear post mounts and the posts for under $6.
