Default Bought TC6.1 Today But Can I Fit A Body...

I bought this body/shell (which is 200mm) for my Sakura Zero S. It came already painted and the holes are predrilled. I haven't built the Zero S yet but I bought a used TC6.1 today and the holes are way off in the back and a little off in the front. Is there a better way to fit the body without having to drill new holes?

Velcro, magnets, glue are some alternatives to body posts and clips. You could wrap tape around it but that wouldn't look good.

Best way is to put new holes in it that line up to the body posts.

Thanks! Stickers to cover the old holes won't look bad. My LHS said to avoid racing with this body b/c it will drive like a tank! I still love the look, so I'll see.

True, with offsets it can look fine. I plan on buying the 190mm but this one came painted, ready to go.

Here it is before drilling new holes and with no offset...
