I designed and printed the rear brace mount and made some tubes to go with it. I'm pretty happy with how it looks and it should prevent the rear of the chassis from getting mangled.

Looking good, nice idea on the rear brace

Do you have an idea when the kit will be available to purchase??
If in doubt go flat out!

Definitely looking nice.

I'd be interested if you put together a kit too.

Here's another new option for the 10M. Before I was running B5M wing mounts which work great, but they force you to cut a pretty big hole in the body right where the body mount post goes. I was holding down the back of the body with the front edge of the wing, which works well, but not the cleanest solution. Also, in the spirit of the bolt-on nature of this project, it would be great if even the body didn't have to be modified.
So I designed this. It screws to the tower and has provisions for wing tubes and a body mount post, both in the stock location. So with this, even a body that was previously trimmed and drilled for a "regular" RC10 would go right on a 10M, no cutting needed. :-)

Unfortunately for me the body for this car is already hacked for the B5M wing mounts, so back to them for me.
