Hi guys,

This is the product I'm reviewing today:

The reason I bought this product ~$100 USD is because I'm sick destroying bodies on my SCT (including so-called unbreakable bodies) and I've had extremely good luck with those Bash Armor bodies in the past.

The second reason I went for this body is because the it is a Flo-Tek body and I'm hoping to get a lot less parachuting with it.

See the e-revo body I'm running on my MT410 with a lot of success here:

Installation:

Note that the body is extremely thick and it will not fit with the stock Tekno posts (the hole for the pin is too low).

To make it work nicely, I decided to use those posts:

To get them fit in the stock mounts, you will need to grind them a bit:

Since I already run those posts on a slash in the past, I decided to replace the head-less-screws with longer ones I got at a hardware store.

Stock screws:

Longer version:

To also prevent them from pulling off, I glued the screws in the posts:

Final result:

Mounted on my "1/8 scale SCT", (this is an EB48.2 turned into an SCT):

I love the fit and stance it has. Although I could live with more stickers to give it a bit more color.

See from the rear all the vents for air-flow:

I can tell you this thing is STRONG.

Full review in the next post.

Great job! You are spot on with your observation. But…. I have been able to use 1/10 clips fairly easily With no other modifications. Takes a bit of concentration but holding well so far.

This is a great review Nicochau! Am looking forward to some post bash analysis. I really appreciate your posting how you made it work with the body posts.

I wonder if it’s worth painting the outside for more color.

I agree that more decals would be great. I think there are some to be had aftermarket.

Also wondering about any appreciable reduction in parachute effect
