Default HOW TO MAKE A BODY RACE READY

I'd like to know how to get an electric touring car body ready to race?

* I have the Hudy Body Mounting Tool for the the minimum height of the top of the body(roof) 115mm, but what about the wing height? I checked roar rules and can't seem to find a required measurement.
* Another thing is there measurement for the bottom of the body to the carpet or ground. Ride height is normally around 5mm but I have an old body that is cut about 8mm from the carpet on the sides and 11mm in the front..
There is a cutout line on the mazda 6 but the bumper cutout line is much higher than the side cutout lines.
Just looking for the rite way to get a body ready for racing.

Generally, the wing can be no higher than the roof. Most tech inspections at races use a bubble level to see that the wing is equal to or lower than the roof.

The easiest way to get the body the right height is to mount the body on the car when it is "ready to race", put the car on a flat table, then take a standard black Sharpie and roll it around the car. Cut the body on the black line. Works every time.
