Default Neighborhood setup?

This may be an ignorant question, so accept my apology before you read my question! I just built a TC6 to mess around with in the neighborhood. What is my best option/setup suggestions from you guys who know them to gain clearance and minimize the dragging and scraping? I'm not out to track race, just wanted something to toy with at my house.. I just don't want my brand new car looking terrible in a month. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

They make chassis protecting film, I have seen some racers cut out a lexan undertray as well. For what you are going a plastic tub chassis is going to take a lot more abuse, the tc6 is really a racing machine, not a basher.

+1 on the protective sheet for the chassis. I have one on my Xray T2 009 and its been a great investment. I raised mine as high as it will go and it usually clears most debris/pavement edges... but I'm drifting, so the side of the car body often clears the way.

Raise your droop to the max (this is the large grug screw in the wishbones which seats on the chassis) you have a tool that came with the car with a flat part and steps, remove wheels and shocks, seat your car (front then rear) on the flat part and screw until the end part of the wishbone reach the top part of the step section 7.

This I hope is clear to understand, it should be a good start to see if your chassis rubs and get scratch, raise it more if you have to, but as it was said above, the TC6 is a racing chassis, by doing this you will not be able to see the potential of racing 1/10th onroad.
