I actually dont think I like a single body JC makes for any kit. Finishers and Silencer are pretty ugly in general, in my opinion

That new JC body looks like D413 meets Model-T.

JConcepts has REALLY missed the mark on lids the last couple of generations. Instead of going for sleek and aggressive looking to compliment all these buggies, they're making them stocky and clunky looking. Their 413 lid however…

I was working on rebuilding my buggy and noticed this wear on my motor mount, I'm guessing from flex. Has anyone else noticed this kind of wear?

I'm also curious when we might see the HB shock caps. I test fit some serpents last weekend and didn't like how little it thread onto the body. Thanks!

Really shouldn't be to much flex at the center diff. I've seen wear marks like that before but the person didn't have the diff screws all the way in.

Yeah, my diff screws were all tight when I swapped oil over the weekend. Just seemed odd. The car still runs great. The diff screws even look good, not ground down or anything.

easiest way to make 2 hole 1.6 and 1.7's is take a 4 hole supplied piston you do not use.
In my case the 1.2's, so drill out two adjacent holes to 1.6 or 1.7 and plug the other 2 holes with CA. since the holes are already pre drilled you can just carefully ream the hole with the drill bit in your fingers.

i just use a drill press stand..They're pretty cheap per say and can be found almost anywhere. Depending on the stand...they will work with a normal drill or dremel

just search drill press stand... they're around 30 bucks..

Yea it sucks to flock down the 30 bucks..but it's worth it to have clean straight holes.

All i do is screw the piston onto a block of wood and let the stand do the rest.

"The new body is sweet" ???
Yeah, about as sweet as a can of sardines.

If I was a lil younger ,more nimble n willing to sacrifice my body ...I would go cop one of those bodies n partake in like a personal spiritual cleansing. ...n mind you, I don't even own the car.
I'd cop the body, go home n place it right in the middle of the living room floor , right on the tile.....
Then, a brothers scaling the bookcase reminiscent of Superfly Snuka scaling the cage in MSG back in like 82......n I'm coming down on that sumbich the way way he came down on Muraco.....Straight down from the rafters.
Squashed that poor brother like a bug.
The ref....fuggedaboudit....he didn't even bother making the count.
All that brother could do was wince ,turn away n call for the paramedics.
Ah yeah babe...
