    i have 3 =( one truggy one 1/10 touring Both resting in peaces and one SAVAGE XL <--- Best Thing I Ever Had


    I have an old Dodge Ram nitro truck with reverse gear. Pretty beat up but works fine. I usually use my multitool to pull those clips out as i always have it on hand. This is a good idea though.


    the problem with pulling them off with a multi tool is that you can scratch the body. With this you never need an extra tool to take it off. I have done this to all the body clips on my truck.
