I don’t think it is an issue. The bumper that comes on the TT02 has the locations to add on body mounts like any other sedan car. Just need to get the uprights that are sold that will bolt in place. Have had that set up on all my TT cars for over 10 years. My now 27 year old kid won stock spec at age 13 and my now 15 year old also won stock spec with the same TT01 set up with the bumper mounted body posts.

I run a tt02 for vta in the summer for a tub series bta style and use the front bumper for body post to mount the body. Its the same distance as the wholes marked on the body for the front most dimple marks on the porsche and mustang.

correct, it matches all the Tamiya sedan body’s forward dimple marks as well. It gives you the ability to use the body on other Tamiya cars without adding more holes.

Since most Tamiya classes require Tamiya manufactured parts, do you happen to know which Tamiya "uprights"/body posts do you think would be appropriate?

I have 3 kits that I still have all the Tamiya posts from ( TbEVO, TT02, TA08 ) let me know if you need the straight or 90deg ones and I can send you a ton of them.

Using the bumper body post mounts has never been an issue at any TCS races to date.

I would think 3.4 and 3.14 would prevent moving the body post from intended locations.

3.4 It is forbidden for the hobbyist to re-engineer, or alter the car, in any way other than with Tamiya Hop-Ups, or kit supplied accessories.

3.14 You may alter the car in any way called out in the “car instruction manual”, or “chassis setting sheet”. If the “chassis setting sheet” calls out the adjustment, then it’s legal to make the change to your car.

The way the bumper is on the TT02 there are purposely locations for bumper body posts.

It’s not re-altering. You’re not drilling or creating new holes. The mounting holes exist in the front bumper, the bumper cover. The bodies have dimples for those mount holes. The TT02 kits don’t include those body posts. So it falls under the category of a hop up.

But the proper body posts are not supplied in the kit or called out in the manual as an optional mounting position.

I just sent an email to Fred to get the final word on the legality of this.

Neither are the numerous hop ups that are available for the chassis.. eg metal out diff out drives, dog bones, CVDs, diff locker, TT02 oil diff, XV02 oil diff, XV02 spool. Manual doesn’t list blue anodised ball ends, blue turn buckles etc.
