You can shim over the front suspension mount to push the mount lower. You can also shim under the balls on the top links to get the roll center where you'd like.

I know that it is designed for a TC chassis as the XB porsche gt3 comes with a tt01e chassis but I want it to take the body and put it on a MR chassis.

easiest way is to use wr02 cvd drive axles (they are super long) and whatever half shafts fit your conversion (my guess is the usual Tamiya 46mm)
Then use tamiya's 9mm drive hex meant for wr02.

The other option is to use wide hexes available from China, they come in various width all the way to 20mm wide.
