    Body Held On With 10 Screws?

    There's a YouTube Vid by a guy who has the UDR and he claims the body is held on with 10 screws. Seems a strange way to go. Anyone know for sure?

    I heard that too but as far as i know it doesn't need to be taken off for most maintenance and the batteries go in from the bottom so it doesn't seem like it should be an issue.

    In another video, you can power on the ESC just by reaching in from the back window.

    Originally I said 10 screws. It's actually 12! It appears you have to remove the body to access the Receiver.

    The body is mounted very securely to the chassis and doesn't jiggle around. There's not much reason to remove it. Maintenance is performed from underneath. You access the ESC through the back window. I suppose you might need to remove it if the truck is absolutely caked in mud, but if the truck is that dirty, you're looking at a tear-down cleaning anyway.

    How often do you get your receiver out?
