RPM Slash 2wd adjustable body mounts

RPM have released adjustable body posts for the Traxxas Slash 2wd, designed for durability and strength while still allowing you to change the body height on the truck. The unique body post mounting system allows the option of using the stock body height on the chassis. The body can also be lowered as much as 3/16” or raised as much as 3/8” simply by moving the posts up or down on the mounts. This simple, yet clever design is strong enough to handle the toughest of conditions while still allowing enough flex to absorb impacts that could otherwise damage other more fragile internal components of the chassis. Everything about the body mounts and posts are beefier than stock, from the thicker than stock screw mounts to the twin screws holding the body posts on to the mounts. They also use an I-beam shape throughout each mount, which provides the strength these parts need for those less than perfect landings.

Even if the two Swiss Champions in the Amateur (Stefan Köhl/Shepherd Velox) and Expert (Mattia Pesenti/Motonica) classes were decided, a lot of racers still arrived Friday but the weather and the track was too wet for getting a good setup and just one driver tested his car in Friday afternoon. On Saturday the weather was again bad, but the race must go on and so all racers took part in qualifying and at the end of the day there were some unfamiliar drivers at the front.
