Those rear body mount/supports were coming out right when I took my break from TC. Can't remember who makes them, could you point me in the right direction?

Thanks for the pics
I run a speedpassion so the HW is the closest idea for me, but thanks indeed VooDooPH and it is as people say " a work of art " :P

The Ride product code for the blue ones is: 28001
They're expensive though but the 417 only deserves the best parts...

Thanks for the replies on the body supports! It was the Ride parts I had in mind, anyone know a good place to buy them?

Good luck finding them in the US. I tried for 6 months and no one carries them.
Finally a friend of mine picked some up in Japan at a hobby shop.
$30 US is quite pricey!
I think the Yeah racing ones are like $6 at rc mart.

Randy,
Talk to Hiro (HB). He had some extra blue ones he received by mistake. I think he might still have em for sale... haven't seen him at West Coast recently though.
