Whats your favorite body clip?
The large tamiya ones are good for under the body. I like the black hpi ones for the top or some thin silver ones for 12th.

Anyone with a negative attitude about body clips should just post in their own thread.

Default Body clips

Body clip manufacturers are rip offs.
I sent some of my bent ones back to the manufacturer and they would not honour the warranty.
They said some crap about 1976 being too long ago but I only used them ONCE (honest). AND it took them a day and a half just to respond to my demand.

Honest john

Damn... I can't remember the last time I bought body clips. I think I am the only loser that picks them up off the floor and from the track. Occasionally I find some in the street from the 2 guys on my block that bash monster trucks. I know they aren't mine because I don't bash. I actually feel like buying some nice blue ones now.

You think its bad using picked up body clips. I use tires from the trash! Some of them are better than the ones on my car

I always score some out of the lost n found tray at the track. I don't feel bad taking them because I seem to lose a couple every day out. Living off the land aint a bad thing.

Funny body clip story, my friend and i were out racing wed. night and he was getting ready for his main and he was like man you got a couple body clips(in a frantic), i gave him some nasty ones and was chuckling under my breathe while i handed them to him. Then i was turn marshaling after my race and found the two brand new shiny body clips that he left on the track when the turn marshall was trying to fix his car i guess, i picked them up and was like sucka, i never told him about it, hahaha.

Man i need to go to bed!

It only cost me less then US3.00 for 100 pieces here in Malaysia. So I am not bothered at all loosing them. Works just as good.
