Default Aero Question

Hey guys, im working on a new body for my SnR converted GTP2e.
Picked an SC8 shell for it.
Gonna do something different and make a race truck for it.
I have a question regarding the rear trim height though.

Leave it as it is or trim it up to match the SC8 cut lines and just join them straight across.

Got the front figured out though, im happy with it
Top line was an oops.

I'm also planning on sticking a wing from the Ofna 1/7 DM-1 on there too.

That's actually pretty cool looking, can't wait to see it finished man, as far as the rear i think it'll look way better cut to that upper line straight across

That's kinda what im thinking, plus it kinda looks like it would catch less air. Just the angles of the plastic anyways.

And thanks, i did the race-truck before once with my ERBE-gt.
Ended up trimming this back to use on my SC8e once i got it built.

Always looking for something i dont see everywhere for my stuff.
Definitely dont see many 1/8 GT/GT2 Trucks
