Is there a replacement for the little clips that hold on the truck bodies? Maybe put another way, a better method of attaching the body? Saw someone on this site had an Amp MT with what looked like an acorn nut on the post in place of the clip. Those clips are hard to get in and don’t really like the zip ties I put on them (for easier removal) dangling around while I drive. Seems like there has to be a better way. I like the idea of something like the 1/4 turn wing but thing that holds on the batteries clip for the Amp MT.

This is for an Amp MT btw. Thanks!

So I got these installed on my sons truck. He loves them and I really like them too. I cut off the posts flush with the mount, then drilled a hole using a 1/8" bit (I think that was the size) then threaded the new metal posts in. Worked like a charm. Here’s a shot of the two rear posts.

I too used the screw caps on my Torment, but they have been scraped off just like the stock body posts did (I crash a lot :eek:) Has anyone had any luck using the aluminum body posts ?

I have the Hot Racing body clip retainers and they seem to be holding up very well, I crash a lot, they are designed for 1/8th scale but fit snugly in a torment. For install I used a leatherman awl tool to put the 4 small holes for the rubber to go in, I will put a picture of that below too. See attached images for more.
