How are you all measuring the rear wheel cutouts? The front cut outs looked great as there are lines for the cutouts. There's no lines on the rear at least on the LSF. I had to elongate the front wheel wells which look nasty now lol. I used to be able to mount bodies but I lost my touch.

I use the cut outs from the front,I place the body on the car and then line up the cut out around the rear wheel making sure it's at the right height and use a black marker to do the out line.They come out perfect every time.

Put a black dot where the axle hits the lexan.

Hi guys!
Which body would you request for an indoor carpet track (pk racing circuit)?
How do MS6 LSF GSF GSF2 compare?
What are the main differences between the LSF and the GSF?

The LSF. LSF is an enhancement of the GSF. Better steering and overall response. Waiting to try the GSFS 2.
Note: all things considered, the ALS-R is a top notch indoor body! Pinpoint steering, nimble response and smooth transitions.👍

Anyone had issues with the wrong window masks being sent out?

Brought the WRX from hobbyking and the window masks were wrong, tried to let them know and they fobbed me off and said I need to do a warranty claim

Interesting. Haven't had issues with wrong masking. Blitz bodies come with an off white almost yellow masking(paper like, not vinyl like PF). What color is yours? If it is white than I'm guessing its a mistake on Hobbykings part(possibly an RMA on their end from previous purchase). Hope you get it worked out. You can always save the hassle of return and mask it yourself. Probably not what you want to hear though.

The yellow paper worked just as good as the protoform white masking tape. You'll be throwing it away after painting anyway...
Congrats to Lars Hoppe on his ETS pro stock win with the lsf body and ARC R11 chassis kit... Blitz and ARC seem to work very well together: the other competitors were left in the dust....

Blitz bodies comes with body marking holes for ARC R11. So, prefect alignment every time. For asphalt track, I like to use either LSF or GSF for better steering. If the track is lose, I use XFR for more rear end traction, easier to drive. On lose track using GSF and XFR, can be 1sec different according from my experience. That's why I always keep a XFR ready just in case.

Was the white sheet.

Front window was right but the side & rear windows were completely wrong.
Also the side windows were "pre cut" for the gap in between the Windows, (b piller?)

Wasn't really a issue, I just liquid masked them up, I just wanted hobbyking to know there was a issue but obviously they don't give a shit.
