PS always love the prep you put into your cars. Well done.
Though that recieve posi looks like it would be a pain to access the motor screws?
Thanks for the comments.
The shocks are mounted with original HPI parts. They are quite hard to find as they only come attached to a full shock parts sets for an other HPI car.
I think this is it:
just make sure that you buy the correct part as the clap on shock mounting is also available in larger ball cup size from HPI.
On this one, the ball size is same as that of Tamiya and this helps in order to use TAMIYA 5mm floarine coated ball connectors.
Access to the motor screw is not a problem as there is space just in front of the receiver with only a very small angle to reach the motor screw.
Good point though!
