I'll be running an Orion speedo on my T4, so will have two sensor wire mounting locations, but what length sensor wire are most people using in this car? Need to order a few last items and figured I'd throw a sensor wire on that order.

Thanks!

i always get the shortest sensor wire available.

10mm is too short, I think mine is 80mm, end to end including the plugs.

I have a dumb question about my body/spoiler. I am running a protoform Mazda speed 6. On the wing there are oval shaped sections in between where the wing mounts to the car. 2 of the small ones say "out" and the other 2 say something else (can't remember right now and I'm at work so can't look). Anyone know what I do with those? Do I cut them out or what? Sorry for the noob questions this is my first touring body.
I'm also having a little trouble figuring out how to line it up. I marked the locations for the posts trying to center the front wheel wells over the tires but the rear looks like it won't be perfectly centered. Seems like the car needs to be a couple mm longer for both wells to line up perfect. Should I cut the wells right on the line supplied or should I cut them so they line up with the wheels and not pay attn to the marked lines on the body?

Art schrimo made a good video on mounted tc bodies on YouTube. The oval sections are to have less down force if you cut them out.

Less Downforce on the rear wing. I mount the body and cut the wheel openings to the car's setup, not what is marked on the body. All depends on track conditions. Sometimes on outdoor tracks the body will be as much as 6mm forward of the body marks for wheel openings.

Thank you... I got the body mounted decent and now I'm gna cut out the wells to where the tires are. It ended up being direct on the rear wheels and front is shifted fwd just a few mm. About how high off te ground should the body be? Is that sharpie marker trick a good way to set that? Set it flat and run it around te body ad cut anywhere it hits?
I also need to know what a decent start point would be for the chasis ride height. 5mm maybe?

Yep, 5mm, set that first then use the Sharpie method. If concerned be conservative, it's always easy to cut more.

5mm is definitely a good start. Typically you will want to run a little rake - say 0,2mm front to back (ie: 5,0 front 5,2mm rear)

How far forward or back you mount the body can affect handling also. Typical is 5mm off the bumper foam.
