Ok so I have a question for all of you, are the broken body mounts covered under warranty? (i think mine broke because it was a bit cold outside)... These things are weak!
and if they are covered, do you have to pay for shipping?

I doubt it.
I have warrantied a receiver, and 2 motors. Normal use. They ship you a new one no hassle, no paying for shipping.
Body cracking, suspension breaking, and more has been my fault.

I guess the best way I can find out is to call them

@justatree, I can't remember what thread or the exact part number but, @Darren Wes had suggested some cobra body mounts, and I still have a pack un opened. I used the lower mount on front and had to pop two new holes in body. Haven't broken them yet, very strong and flexible. I'll take some pics in the morning and post them here, along with part number.

Tho I only asked 2 times for body posts I was given some happily from arrma. After that I got a tbone bumper and drove more carful

I do rember the cobra kind and I never ended up using them. I kept using stock fronts because it allowed me to have my fake motor on the hood.

I have used duratrax posts 4in on my granite. my friend got 3in for his senton and realized he needed 4in for his application. the point is duratrax makes shorter ones too. If you're not trying to add hoodflair, I would go with duratrax brand posts because they are easier to find and fit well width wise.

My body post mount broke and my posts are still good.
You can get this part or somthing very similar and they should be fine
Part number

How did you convince them to give it to you?

Here is what I did, this is on the front. I had to trim the post a little but, they have been awesome.

No, they should slide into the original body post mount. I had to remove the whole mount and slide the post in from underneath. And then assemble it back onto vehicle as one piece.

You'll probably have to drill 2 new holes in the body. I have the zip tie on there to keep the post aligned with holes in body.

Then re install onto rc after you have assembled the other side. You might have to trim down the post after you install them. They are a real tight fit into stock mount, maybe use some dish liquid or wd40 so they'll slide in easier.

One more thing, there is a set screw here.

On both mounts, they will hold the body posts in place. Just don't over tighten and strip the holes out. I just pushed posts all the way down and then tightened them in place, haven't moved since.
