i know in the past i kind of fabbed up my own body posts, using existing holes in the shock tower and a washer/nut on the back side, idk if this would be possible for you though.So for the life of me I could not figure out why the front body posts were such a pain the you know what to put on, the body is the Proline Enforcer body for the D8T Ty Tessman Edition. I have the standard D8T. The Tessman had low profile carbon fiber shock towers. And I did not notice this until after I already ordered the last Hpi Enforcer D8T Ty Tessman body.............. Soooo I have 2 choices, either buy the right shock towers for the body, or by the right body for the truck. Amain has the stock body but idk if anyone has the shock towers.
I was thinking about this too. I have a box full of spare body mounts off of other rcs I might look through that and see if I can find something that is a better fit.i know in the past i kind of fabbed up my own body posts, using existing holes in the shock tower and a washer/nut on the back side, idk if this would be possible for you though.
Right. They used to look like trucks.think i like the stock better, its weird where bodies have gone to in appearance, i remember when "Race" bodies were like the RC10GT and DTX evader, TRX Rustler etc, now its all robotic looking lol.
I was trying to straighten this after I noticed it was bent and I broke it instead.I found a website that has a bunch of upgrade stuff available for the D8T.
I just noticed the 2 small cracks in the chassis today. New chassis is $134.50 plus shipping.I was trying to straighten this after I noticed it was bent and I broke it instead.

So I bought a brand new set from Jet Hobby

Figured I would pick these aluminum chassis braces up while I was at it. And tossed in a Hobbywing Max8 and a Savox 1211sg servo.

And I am pretty sure these holes are not factory.

yikes thats not good, and those holes definitely not factory, looks like someone tried their own B/L conversion? see alot of people using a piece of metal in the shape of an L and bolt it to where the factory engine mounts are, at least they semi decent, dont have the weird "wandering slot" look to them, but if you have to get a new chassis, get to start fresh anyways.I just noticed the 2 small cracks in the chassis today.

I can buy all the parts to make it a D8T/Vorza hybrid for like $80. It would have the look of a MT410 and Outcast/Notorious.
It almost looks like they tried to use the Vorza motor mount before getting the M2C mount.yikes thats not good, and those holes definitely not factory, looks like someone tried their own B/L conversion? see alot of people using a piece of metal in the shape of an L and bolt it to where the factory engine mounts are, at least they semi decent, dont have the weird "wandering slot" look to them, but if you have to get a new chassis, get to start fresh anyways.
