These have just been released for the dslots,along with the jet alliance DBR9 and the alternative compuware corvette.
The body clips need changing over as the dslot uses a different clip. I will take some better pics tonight with my decent camera.

Its just a case of changing the rear body clips over to a set from an old dnano ASC. :)

Do you know if it's possible to get these clips by themselves? I have a pair of 911 GT3 DSlot bodies. Also, what's the best way to remove the clips without causing damage?

Hmm, good luck finding a McLaren fitting kit. I think you'd have to buy the pieces to make one yourself these days unless it gets re-released by Kyosho.

And then you still need a body to sacrifice to get the mounts.

I'd love a brightly colored McLaren body, my Aston looks awesome but is quite dark.

I use a 1mm drill bit,a sharp knife and take my time. You have to get a set of clips from another body,they are not sold seperately.

You only need the clip set,not the whole fitting kit as front and rear ends can easily be bought seperately. I will be posting pics of all 3 bodies later.

Yes, please share how the mounts were modded. Our local HobbyTown is getting these 6 new Dslot43 bodies in and I'd like to fit them on my dnanos. Especially the new 'vette bodies.

Thanks Kryten for the inspiration :D
I bought the Fina Mc Laren whole car including the slot car chassis for the fraction of what one would pay for a dnano body :p

First I thought I would 3d print the side mounts then I realized that only a small modification of the slot car mounts was needed. They need to be relocated forward about 2mm and thinned. Here is the result.

The side mounts I designed and did not use finally.

I'm very happy with the result. I did not use the Ueno Clinic McLaren too often because of the dark livery but now its ok.
