  1. Hello, I’m refurbing and upgrading my old 90s Blitzer Beetle and have barely touched the hobby since back then so am a real novice. I’m looking at putting a lexan body on it (gone for kamtec baja) and I like the slightly more lowered look like the one in these pics: http://www.tamiyaclub.com/showroom_model.asp?cid=121529&id=13023. I know I can cut the rear mounting holes higher up the body, trim out space for the motor and trim back the wheel arches, but how can I lower the front mount? Is there an alternative Tamiya front mounting set which would fit the Blitzer Beetle which would allow much lower mounting? Or even, like my old mates used to do back in the day with their Schumacher/Losi buggies, is velcro somehow workable? And if so, isn't there a risk the glue it could melt/damage the paint or just tear it straight off? Many thanks for any help.
