Body location has a huge impact on the way an 1/8th scale handles.
It depends on what body you will be using.
Typically from the edge of the front bumper to the inside of the front of the body it is around 10mm to 12 mm. But then again it depends on the body. This is just a rule of thumb, as everyone likes to mount the body to suit their own driving. Post what body you will be using, and then a dem. will be posted for that body. 2mm on a body location makes a big difference in handling.
I use the P909 and sit it at 12mm for my Mugen, and I use the Zytek for my Serpent, and follow the body post locations that are laid out already for that body.
