Turning the rear shock tower block doesn't change the wheelbase.
To change the wheelbase of that chassis you need to get yourself a good assortment of suspension arms (both rear and front).
On the front the difference is minimal (perhaps a couple of millimetres) between using the TA01/02 or the FF01 arms.
On the rear, the difference is significant (IIRC up to 10mm).
The TA01 rear arms can be flipped around as well to give the shortest wheelbase you want.
That is unless you want to go extreme and flip the TA02/FF01 arms. The rear overhang of the chassis will be similar to that of a 2WD buggy. Might help with loading the rear end a bit in a FWD car.
If you would run this setup in a "normal" motor configuration (i.e. as in a TA01-02) there will be very little clearance between the motor and the rear left arm (if any).
In principle all tamiya shells will fit perfectly on this chassis provided you get the right combination of suspension arms for the shell, no other mods needed. Other shells will require modifications.
