Paul Sinclair's X - 60 Rear Body Mount Help

The awesome X - 60 body, like all truck bodies, takes quite a bit of abuse because it encloses the shocktowers. However, with the X - 60's body mounts being so far apart, the body can come under extra stress in a wreck. The rear body holes on Paul Sinclair's truck started to crack, so like many drivers do for their 1/8th scale bodies Paul slotted them out to allow the body some movement. This has really helped reduce the wear and tear on the rear of the body - the body pictured here (April '09) is the same one he first received back in December at the JConcepts Clash. To help keep the body on, he created a small shim out of extra lexan: see the pictures below for a much easier understanding (click to enlarge).
