Default Stupid question driving me crazy... Losi 8ight 2.0

A small rectangle piece came with my 8ight-B roller. I ordered an extra body and this small rectangular (1 1/2" x 1") piece came taped to the body (taped under the sticker that says "remove protective film before placing stickers") There is a small hole in the middle of it. I give up! What is this piece for? Just a demo of the protective film your suppose to remove? Do you place it in water and it grows into an extra body?? or maybe its got a secret message hidden in it that will give me the winning lottery numbers so I could build the greatest indoor / offroad track of all time (similar to the super dome)?

THe piece that came with the body is a color chip to show you the color of the body that you purchased.

That piece is for the rear body mount on your buggy. Its a washer to go between the body and the body pin.

As chucinator says, it should go between the body and the body pin. The Losi has alot of flex so you should open up the hole in the bode aprox 5mm to the rear and to the front. When you have chassisflex, you will not destrouy your body as it can slide back and forth on the rear bodymount.
