Default Does anyone make a better body mount for Losi 8 buggy?

I've stripped out the front body moung for my Losi buggy, not really sure how it happened, just landed from a jump and the body popped off. I'm looking for an aluminum replacement for it? I can't seem to find anything though. Are you guys having this issue?

It's losa4424

there isn't one. your best bet is a new plastic mount. a longer screw and about 3mm of fuel tubing, rubber o rings etc under the mount to allow it to flex.

on 1/8 buggy I have never used body mounts, I velcro the sides of the body to the buggy and it allows flex and will never come off


Good Luck
