Try the RT6 short rear mount... should give you a bit of clearance for the shorter bodies

And for the front mount I think there is a mount from HPI that looks similar to the AE one .. looking for a picture now

SC10 front mounts flipped look like they may work...I have them on right now, going to try the body.

Im definitely considering one of these kits. I have a losi lxt from 1993. Thing was built like a tank. Never had an associated off road vehicle. This looks like an awesome truck. Not too keen on the body though...thoughts on different options?

Makes sense, could be a MM and RM version in the works and more engineering needed for those heavy bastards.

I hope they ship T5's at end of the month, manual has not hit yet either. Been having fun with the T4.2 the last few times out can't imagine how fun the new platform is going to be.
