Here are a few pics installed...






Fit is pretty good, going to test it tonight... Im excited, I havent been able to use this body in a long time, since the side body clip broke...

I may add an F1 shock, have to see how it feels on the track...

Depending on the mount that you use, you can use 94, 96, 98, 100*, and 102*mm...
*100mm requires Reflex 96mm t-plate and PN FMv3/4
*102mm requires PN FMv3/4
94-98mm can be used on any 94/98 MM mount.

I am using the FM LCG mount on this chassis at 94mm. At first I had drilled holes for the studs on the rear deck lid, these proved to be too close together, and the studs had to bend too far... I moved the studs to the forward holes, and it fit much better. Removing and installing the body takes a little longer than without the retention system, although I wouldnt say that it is any longer than having to tape the body down, and should interfere less with how the car performs than having the body taped...

No offense to Reflex/Mantis....But if you guys are trying to promote your business, dont you think you should take some pictures using a REAL camera? Just my 2 cents.

I just want to say that I tested the car I posted pics of above last night. It drove well, better than I had anticipated. I did not use any grease on the DDS, and didnt feel that I needed any...

I ended up switching the body to a newer/painted version of the F355. I will post some pics of it later when I get home.

I TQ'd and won. The class is 70t, narrow bodies, any chassis so long as the width of the kingpins is the same as the MR01/015/AWD with less than 2mm offset.

The body stayed put very well. Although, I am also using the side clips, and not using the body posts as a replacement, but rather more security. This body tends to pop up if you get hit from behind. I got slammed very hard in practice, and thought that I was definitely broke, but no problems at all.

Thanks Marcus for a great product. I never want to tape a body down again. Taping the body down pinches the body around the rear wheels, and changes the way the body handles. Using the DPS body mount, I had no such issues.

I did change the plastic nuts for alloy nuts, and had to work them onto the screws, it took some time, but wasnt really a problem. The plastic nuts stripped out when I tried to tighten the nut that holds the screw in place so you can install the nut that holds the body down without the screw spinning...

This is going to be a great product

Just wanted to point out that these are SNEAK shots. Not the official release pictures. They definitely look good enough to suit the purpose. I think if the car was a little further from the camera, it would be a better image.

No, there is no ETA at the time. We were waiting for them to come back from anodizing soon.
