BRP locking clips, although they've been known to confuse racers from the South.

Too much extra weight. You won't be competitive if you carry an extra gram in body clips. You want the small black Tamiya ones. Or the Corrally plastic screw downs.

Yes, I am being facetious.

I use my HPI ones, pretty solid, rarely bend, and when they do bend, you'll need pliers or vice grips to get em off the posts.

I like the Corally threaded Body Posts but you can never find them, the small Tamiya ones work well, but the less you crash the less it matters what ones you use
