Default correct bodyshell fitment ??

ive seen a few beginners attach there shell so its rigid on the mounts,imo this will effect the cars ability to flex, i mount mine loose so the shell can move around a small amount on the posts,am i right ? how do you mount yours?

I always leave a small amount of play around the body post holes and also insert the pins above the body so there is room for the body to float on the post.

I run my bodies a little loose, but I make sure that the front nose is right on the foam bumper, so it doesn't dig in on corners.
