I have been wanting to do this forever... I was going to do the JC wing mount and get screws and buttons then so I have been putting it off. Of course that mount is never in stock anywhere when I order.

So to do it with the stock mount, it just takes wing buttons and screws? What size screw?

Yes it just takes wing buttons and screws. I purchased a set from Shapeways when I also ordered my LCG trans but it's cake to do to the stock setup. I've done it on all my other buggies.

M3 flat head screw, the one that is angled on the underside of the head, probably only about 4/5mm long. I don't have it in front of me to measure exactly but you'll know which one to use so that it doesn't punch out the bottom of the mount.

Cut off the nub with either a dremel or hobby knife.

Mark the center with a body reamer or punch.

Best would be to use a drill bit. Lowes sells small Dewalt bits in SAE but on the top right side of the package it also says the metric number. I think the closest you can get is 2.4mm or 2.8mm, I would go small (2.4) since its plastic and the screw will thread itself.

I would thread the screw in first to get it going before final mount. Backing out, slap the wing in there, the wing buttons and screw it on.

Probably sounds like a lot more work than it really is. Takes longer to write this than it is to do it.

Like others have mentioned, keep the blue insert if available and store upright.

I use a small cardboard box that I cut in half and is about 6" x 4" x 2" to keep all my different bottles in. You can pack paper towels or other goodies in with the bottles if you don't have enough bottles to fill it up.

No.. not at all. I'm all over that as soon as I can find some buttons! That post should be a dang sticky lol. I'm glad to have the drill bit sizes and all that way I have some idea of what the heck I'm doing! No need for that stupid JC mount now.

The jc mount is aluminum. Unsure I would want it that stiff. Seems like wings would get destroyed quicker. Of course never crashing would fix that

I finally got to do mine tonight along with the JC low wing mount up front.
The drill bit needed is a 3/32nd and I used associated 3x10mm FHCS but I didn't cut the nubs flush with the wing mount. I cut them flush with the wing shim installed...

With the wing mounted with screws and buttons, do you guys find wings last longer?

On my b44.3 the wing took some abuse... That's an understatement.
My brothers was mounted with clips and didn't last near as long before falling apart. Not sure if it was the mount or the type of impacts.

Pick up a Flambeau 0550 spinnerbait box. They're the perfect size for shock oil and tire sauce bottles.

Depends. I ran the Exotek aluminum wing mount and it was so stiff that I was going through wings at a very fast rate. I prefer plastic. Even with the plastic mount I was going through wings faster when I used the wing buttons. If you're worried about wings the stock set up is best. If you want your wing stiff and in place, use buttons.
