Thats silly, seeing its supposed to represent the full size counterpart.
FWD should be a FWD body.

Default Porsche Body

Worked on my car a bit and now it's a roller. To get the Porsche body to fit, I built (or rebuilt multiple times) the rear end with medium wheelbase settings and spaced the rear arms and hub carrier to make it as long as possible. It works. Matches the pre-marked dimples and cutouts nicely.

I hope this helps those who are planning on using the Porsche.

Has Anyone encounter diff over slipping???
Am using Orion Experience2 19t brushless Combo on the FF03Pro and after 2min run the diff slips to a point it can't move. Check the diff it's not loose at all. Waited for the diff to cool down it went back to normal

I have an FF01 but I might have to spring for one of these FF03s... they look SO sweet
just finshed a test run with ff03,very nice alittle slow with stock gearing
will need to adjust it to silver can.
for the Interga the long wheel base works perfect
alco there are body mount places on the back of motor plate ,so the perdrilled holes will work.
can't wait to put a tuned black can in it!!!!

It handles the shelf really well! I haven't installed the speedo or receiver yet and the TA track was closed for maintenance this weekend. I should be able to run next weekend.
