Just use some strategically placed stickers to cover the battle scars

Which chassis is that on? Or did you change the front body mount. Here is mine. I wish Tamiya included light buckets with this body.

Also , I'd like some pics of your Clio's
A Clio came on a FF01 Short I thnik it and the VR5 VW were on the same chassis,and i think they were 13mm shorter than a TA02

Great looking Sentra...LOL! My integra came from an unconventional source, Santa Ian!

It will be an awesome race, heads-up and fastest single lap. Everyone bring there lucky charms.

FF03 chassis, stock mounts, holes were in place already. You can move your post you know!

Aaahh, i think it need more than that to cover it up but I'll definitely do it. Saw an integra body there cut beyond the trim line and sitting very low, I'm gonna do that if Fred allows it. Heheheh!

Cool FWD bodies?

This picture is pre-battle scars!
If I took a picture now, it wouldn't be a pretty sight!

Gashuffer,

Why didn't you move the body posts back on the chassis for the front of the car. That way the holes in the body just in front of windscreen could have been used. Using the mounts further back are also good with a lot of other bodyshells

I didn't know you can move them. I'll look into that for the future. Thanks.

I am having a problem adding enough rear droop. I want that maxed out but the shocks seem to limit the travel as I still have room under the rear arm and chassis. Is there a way I can drop the shock tower a bit to achieve the right amount of droop?

Or do I make my shock longer? Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks..

Try unscrewing the lower ball connectors a couple of turns, or use longer connectors.

you may want to get optional suspension blocks for tuning.. swaybars.. this thing is all about suspension setup... cornesrpeed and stability.

the other options do help some.. but not necessary..
