Default HPI 190mm body alignment on PRO 4 question??

Does anybody know if the HPI 190mm body dimples are aligned with the body post on a PRO 4? I suck at drilling body holes as they never align. Im hoping that the HPI 190mm bodies, I can just ream a hole on the pre-dimpled dot and drop it on the PRO 4. I want to avoid the hassle of screwing things up. Thanks in advance.

I can't vouch for any other shell by HPI but i know the aero 2 shell dimples line up . read the instrutions that come with the shell.

The only body that I know that lines up is the Aero 2 Stratus. You still need to cut the wheel wells and make sure everything is even, while using the dimples. Just be careful and take your time.
