Does anyone know if there is an alternative body mount that can be substituted for the kyosho F355 Ferrari. I have the F355 body but broke the front mount. Kyosho do not sell just the front mount for the F355. I was thinking maybe another Ferrari, like a Ferrari 360 may work.

why not try reglueing it and reinforce it with epoxy or some other material??? or fabricating one out from scratch...

of course the other alternative would be to buy a real front body mount...

Yeah, just as I thought. I will have to glue the broken piece and then fabricate a bunch of it because I am bound to break it in the future

Use a C5R body clip. The front will be slightly higher, but that gives the wheels a little more clearance from the fenders, so its not necessarily a bad thing.

Thanks for the tip EMU. I tried it today and it fits perfectly! It looks like it make the front end sits lower too!
