Very nice paint job. The lid looks great.

Did you reposition the rear body mounts somehow? I cant tell what is holding the rear of the body secure from the picture. Looks good though

Default losi body

what i did was took off the rear body mounts and each body mount had 2 holes for mounting screws. i cut the lower hole off so it only had one screw mount right obove the rear diff in the 1.0 shock tower there is a hole that i mounted it to so the rear only has one mount position in the rear dead center

You could also put the 2.0 rear body mounts on in the same manner as you have done with the 1.0 mounts, it worked great for mounting a Proline Bulldog body on mine.

Looks good to me. Looks like a 2.0 until you take the lid off
