Element RC Enduro Trail Truck Build – Part 8 – Body Mounts | CompetitionX

The final step in the Element RC Enduro Builder’s Kit are the body mounts. Element RC supplies a single (short) body post solution up front, however two options for the rear. You can use a similar single body post (like the front) or a taller, cross-braced dual post (for taller bodies).

Build Notes:
Replacing the body posts is a quick, 15-second process. If you’re not sure on your body selection just yet, do what I did and just install the shorties for now.
Step 1:

Install the front body posts.
Step 2:

Install the rear body posts. Done. LOL

And there you have it. Two SUPER easy install steps to finish off your Enduro Builder’s Kit.

The only thing you have left to do is decide on a body, wheels and tires (maybe electronics if you didn’t install them earlier). Get those installed and get your awesome ride outside! I can’t wait to do that with mine!
