Default body mount question

Trying to find a way to mount this body without messing it up too bad with clips. Maybe some kind of cap that threads on. Any ideas?[IMG][/IMG][IMG][/IMG]

proline made some sweet threaded mounts for short course trucks i use them on my race trucks and they seem to do a great job of not cracking the body. Maybe you can make something work from those?

I come across some nifty magnetic body mounts on banggood last night, something light might work...although you already have holes in your body....

These have been used by members here, I have a set I will be trying out - they require some modding of your existing body posts:

Likewise, these work, too (with mods) :

I prefer the aluminum JConcepts, but the plastic ProLine's may not scuff the body as much...

I tried the captured magnets for body mounts on my crawler and I hate them. The body would get misaligned or knocked off every time you rolled. Magnetic body mounts are best left to on-road cars IMO. Velcro would be a better solution. You custom make a flat mount that's mounted between the body mounts and put velcro on there as well as on the underside of the body.

Velco stuck better than magnets for me.

Edit- Got bigger magnets. Work great.
