Yes... I think the stock body is a pretty snazzy body though. Not sure why people want so many options. OK, well I do but that's what paint is for.

The JC body has more downforce on higher speed tracks.

Just received my Spyder SRX-2 MM. Started the build. Based on what I read before, I purchased some nut drivers tool kit. (4, 5, 5.5, 7mm)

Looks like the 4 is too small and the 5 is too large for steps 11 and 12.
I am stuck here without proper tools. Are these the proper tools?
Looks like I would need a 4.5mm instead? Can anyone tell me which tools I need?

4.5mm is the correct size needed. A 3/16" will work to get you by.

You need the 4 and the 4.5. 4.5 for the steps mentioned but you'll need the 4 for the shock shafts. For 4mm and 5mm, a simple cross wrench is good enough.

1.5/2.0/2.5mm Hex wrenches
4/4.5/5/5.5/7mm Hex nut drivers
3mm turnbuckle wrench
