I always see Eagle Racing stealth mounts recommended. There are lots of options, pretty much all very similar in design. The major differences are in materials (aluminum/plastic) and how they hold the body on (magnet/velcro).
There are arguments both for and against both methods, so it's really what you prefer or have access to...velcro or magnets.

Look at the oval racing companies like Hyperdrive. They have systems like what you want and are race proven.

I think he means stealth as in they don't stick out of the body...those will but will have a nice rounded top and adjusted at the bottom.

To be honest...stealth body posts just are not worth the hassle. Velcro ones don't hold even in the lightest of crashes and any of the ones that use a clip that bolts on to the body still has screw heads sticking out and are a pain in the but to use. Unless you are building a show car that almost never has the body removed...I wouldn't recommend it.
