I have received the mclaren body, looks darn good! Mounting it is a pain though, one mounting bracket needed to be cut as it pressed against the motor can. Now it fits great but still hard to put on or remove. I may need to work on the mounting brackets a little more.

I trimmed the clips on either side, easier to put on. I've been looking to get the body posts parts to use the Mini-Q lexan bodies for some more weight savings.

I did the same, first cut the large square flat parts and then used a sanding tool to remove some of the remainder of the clips. It now fits on with a little pressure. I'm a little reluctant to remove any more material, and make the fit too loose.

Also drove it with body, seems better than without. The motor was a bit warm after 5 minutes of running, might be the carpet I was running on. It's also quite warm here, both outside and inside.

Also noticed the car slows down almost instantly after releasing throttle. Is this normal? I know it has little mass to keep rolling, and I doubt it's the drag brake setting, as the car also stops directly after being pushed forward manually. Might also be the motor's magnet pull, the stronger the magnets, the more natural braking.

I would think Xtreme, they are good to deal with.
