Can pull the body mounts off my losi to see if they fit without drilling. Just did a search and everything says they will work without drilling, but we can double check if you want? Might even have a spare set.

sounds good BUT from the photos I came across...the towers are drilled. Just in a different place then if I was to use the stock D8T mounts.

On another note Tyler...the truck is done and all broke in. Now just need to work on tuning it out at the track next week. I think I pissed off some golfers today

you can run the losi long body mounts, no drilling needed. i see people doing that all the time. i was going to run it the same way but i sold my D8T before i ever cut out my bulldog body. had 3 stock ones. and IMO the losi tall/long mounts work better, its easier to get the body on and the template from proline isnt exactly right.

anyone have pictures showing the losi mounts on the D8T without any drilling?

Tyler...nope wont have the body til first week in Jan once the painter is done with it BUT I would be curious to see if these mounts line up without drilling. I tried some that Kevin had for a Losi and they didnt line up on the shock towers without having to drill

Use the losi tall body mounts line up perfect. They are like 5 bucks.

its not hard, just screw the long ones on the front shock tower just like you would with the D8T ones and your done. the stock rear ones are left alone.

Hey Slacker, We did try the Losi Tall mounts and they will work but you can only put 1 screw in. The mount uses 2 screws and only 1 lines up unless you drill for them both to work. That way it would be stronger.

I didn't want to drill the tower either so I put a brace between the two mounts so they wouldn't move side to side.

thx for the pix KIK. what did you use for the brace? And set up like that it doesnt move much? I assume it still does a bit but not enough for the body to tweak over and rub the wheels or anything if you roll it over at the track.

Kevin...dude your in CA with your fam, get off the darn internet

get a set of 8t mounts and have the painter save you a piece of the lexan that was cut away from the body(is he cuts it). take the pice of lexan and use it for a cross brace on the posts.

I used the Losi 8T 2.0 mounts. I'll try and take some pics in a while, my D8T is in pieces right now . I mounted them on the front of the tower, then used a piece of Lexan as a brace between the two posts. Doing this, the body holes are not in the stock location, but it works.

With the amount of questions over mounting a stupid body, one would come to the conclussion that their is some sort of rocket science to it.

For the love of God, drill the tower, install and be done with it.
