To mount the F2 1/8th truck body on the HB D8T Evo 3, a carbon fiber adaptor #2954 is needed along with the Team Associated #81622 body mounts (not included) to place the front of the body in correct position. Each truck has a specific adaptor produced in carbon fiber which bolts directly to the stock tower and once adding the (not included) body mount, provides a custom fit and beautiful finish. There are several adaptors available for vehicles including RC8T3.2, MBX8T, 8ight-XT, HB D8T Evo and Tekno NT48 2.0.
Assembly notes –
To begin, install or mock-up the (not included) AE body mount #81622 into the center position on the carbon fiber adaptor by using included hardware. Tighten the screw while allowing the mount to “notch” in to place to give the mount a vertical and stationary position. In some cases, depending on vehicle, the body mount may need to be completely installed to the adaptor first, due to hidden or closed-off screw locations. Once the mount is positioned, attach the carbon fiber adaptor to the shock tower using 3mm hardware and secured in to place with 3mm lock nuts.
Once the carbon fiber adaptor of choice is attached to the shock tower, review the instructions on body trimlines to accommodate the vehicle of choice. It is important to follow along to position body mount holes, perimeter cutlines and possible engine head cut-out and fuel tank openings to the appropriate vehicle. Once the carbon adaptor is in position and body is trimmed for the vehicle, the painting and detailing process can be completed in traditional fashion.
