I was trying to mount this blue Lamborghini body onto this MR-03 JSCC Edition of the Mini Z MR-03. The JSCC comes with alot of hop ups including an Oil Filled Rear Shock and Rear Carbon Suspension Plate. But this rod that holds the oil filled shock and rear carbon suspension plate gets in gets in the way of the Lamborghini body fitting?

Here is the blue Lamborghini Countach:

Is their a way to solve this and keep the oil filled rear shock and rear carbon suspension plate?

I am using this Kyosho Motor Mount:

The JSCC car is an RM car (with top shock), Countach is an RML, and cannot use a top shock without modifying the body for clearance. I shaved a bit away on the body to allow for clearance for a disc damper and top shock.

I shaved a little at a time, and checked the clearance. The bad thing is that there may be a small hole on the top of the body behind the roof... but it will allow better suspension dampening... If you go this route, be sure to test that the suspension has full articulation without binding...

Hope this helps.

So is their a way to make the JSCC mini z an RML so I can use the Countach body (RML)?

Just remove the top shock... thats the only difference between the RM and RML chassis...
