Default Body ride height

Your is your 1/10 touring car body distance to the ground? Do you usual set the rear higher?

I try to keep it as flat as possible, with the front valance around 0.5mm higher than the bottom of the bumper. I do sometimes raise the back end slightly, it seems to generate more steering this way.

Put it as flat as possible without the body rubbing the floor while cornering to generate the maximum aerodynamic downforce in front. You can do some finetuning with rising the rear, but that also means to rise the center of gravity slightly.
