Tip: Velcro Body Mounts for M5 and DX450

The Anderson M5 / Duratrax DX450 uses screws to hold the body on the frame instead of body clips. I found on the rcgroups forums a long time ago this tip to hold the body down using velcro instead of screws. I have velcro at both front and rear body mounts plus at two spots on each side of the body near near where the body touches the lower frame. Body has never come off in crashes and makes access to frame quick and easy. I left the original screws in and drilled out the body so the body comes off. Doubt they are needed but I kept them there for peace of mind. I also added a little double sided tape on the body for the top front mount position so the velcro contours with the frame better. That’s it!
