Rear Wing Position.....

Does moving the rear wing have much of an effect on rear end grip?

I know there is limited movement that can be achieved by the mounting position on the rear deck but there is also the position of the bodyshell.

How much effect can the positions have or is the basic design of the bodyshell the main sticking point?

Moving the wing towards the front or rear of the car makes a noticable difference..... Easy to try if the wing is bolted on and the all the holes are already there.

Never tried moving the entire body.

All three variables you mention have an effect on the handling of the car. The basic body design probably being the most important, then body position and rear wing. You will need to experiment with your driving style and setup to really determine what is going to be most beneficial to you. Good Luck.
