yes I did the trig and I though of doing that shimming thing in the rear of the Zero deg block . I was afraid getting the 4 deg total ,the block might get push down too far will scrape bottom

Ran with 4 degrees today, no scrape whatsoever with 5mm ground clearance.

I put the TRF dampers on mine, I don't have the box handy at this exact moment but I can look tonight, the mighty Google says 42273 is the part number. I also have carbon towers and a sway bar kit, both fit either M07 or M08, as well as M07 caster blocks as they're a one piece design and are more durable.

As for running this car outdoors, an M07 might be the best upgrade, lol. I ran mine for some parking lot races over the summer and it was very hit or miss. Some days it was fast as hell, and others it was a total hand full just to keep it going the right direction. With actual setup work it might be fine, but that's not an area I excel in.

Wow. Getting this body even before getting my chassis. I'm still holding out for the M08R.

Does anyone know if the Porsche Turbo RSR Type 934 shell will work with an M-08 chassis?

Wheelbase is 230..

M08 is 210, 225, 239. So with 225 you can make it work. Issue is width.. as back end of the 934 is wide, so youll have to come up with some wide wheels

That's too bad, a body like that would be perfect for this platform.
