    Erevo VXl - Light kit & Body question

    Hey all,

    I just ordered an Erevo VXL 2.0 should be getting it on Thursday.Super excited.

    I'm not a big fan of the stock body and like painting bodies. Is there any downside to removing the Traxxas body clip system and going with a different body? I'd also like to remove the wing.

    Last question - does anybody have a light kit that they like for the erevo?

    Yes you can use body posts and then any body for erevo.

    Light.

    I did trx led maxx kit and bumpers and modded it to work with erevo. For cost and probably durability I'd go with eBay link.

    Any downside to using a different body compared to latch erevo body?

    Thank you!

    Need body saver so pins don't rip through body... Hassle of using clips and loosing them.

    May be able to retro fit the clip less system onto a clip body. With some mods.

    Yet to try as I just bash and don't car about the body.

    It's no different than using a body that's not clipless. Instead of a latch system you would use 4 body clips.
