I've been struggling to find rear body posts to use w/ my TA02F chassis.


I've got the VW Golf VR6 kit as well as a clean unpainted Golf body and an untouched Jaccs Civic EG body.

I'm trying to fit a different body on it, but hate the idea of cutting posts down. Can't find anything current that works. Thoughts?

I also located the speed control lower. The car is more balanced and 60grams lighter. Still a few bugs to work out. I will post updated photos soon.

There's a guy trying to sell a BNIB Mondeo kit on ebay for the last four or six years if I remember correctly. I think it's still there.
