Used double sided foam tape to get the body just the way I wanted it. Then with the body mounted I carefully dripped thin CA onto the double sided foam tape. Which made it hard and adhered the clips to the body without any fuss.

Nice job and nice fabrication work on the front bumper! Not sure those front crash bars are going to last long in a race though...

They are actually made out of a soft rubber / plastic. Very pliable. No tracks in my area. So all the racing is we do is beer and pretzel racing. Basically chase each other around on my basement track. It works good enough for that. I think it might need an "interceptor" motor though. :D

I wouldn't call it a hybrid though, just xmod body ported to a Z. Good luck, this thing should hold up just fine.
