Default My Body Doesn't Fit!!!!

I was wondering why my HPI Lambo Gallardo doesn't fit my NTC3 i had it all lined up drilled the holes and the rear wheels were too far back but the front lined up mint. So I repositioned and drilled again and then the front came bad and the rear was mint. Any help will be well appreciated. thanks

Don't cut the wheel openings til after you have drilled the mounting holes and are happy with the fit. Also fit the clear body, before you paint.

the wheelbase on the car usually never lines up with the wheelbase on the body, line the front wheels up to the wheel wells on the body, and adjust the rears accordingly
