HPI Savage TCS Flux 5T (Custom Body Mount)

Preview of the TCS Flux 5T with an unpainted Proline Baja 5T Desert Rat body. In order to mount this body to the Savage I had to make some aluminum body mounts because the stock mount were weak and the rear mounts could not reach.


There is a top view of the TCS Flux 5T with the new front and rear mounts.

 

I took the plastic body mounts from the Baja 5T and mounted it to a custom aluminum plate is 1/4 inch thick. I could have used the stock body mounts but it was really weak and not strong enough to support the heavyier 1/5 scale body.

 

The rear body mounts could not reach so I have to make the body post a lot longer. Similar to the front body mounts I use 1/4 inch aluminum to mount the body post.

A few years have past and I no longer have a HPI Savage Flux, but someone found my website and asked if I could make them a body mount for their 1/5 Scale Savage. I end up trading my work for a RTR plane.

I made some modification to this body mount to make it stronger.
