Will using sidewall decals change the effect of using CA on them also?

I want 5mm rear ride height but the highest i can get is 4.5mm. I even fitted new Ride XR tires. Is there any way i can increase the ride height?
I really don't want to file down the motor rack!

No... I do use wheel dots ontop on my CA, just to prevent the sidewalls from grabbing onto the flappers we use on the turns

When I ran my Roche F1-16 outdoor, I used the aluminum rear pod and was able to get to 5.0mm rear ride height with Shimizu rear tires.

I don't think they will work on a 16, The standard one have the most change in height

Yes you're right, the kit rear axle height adjusters already give the tallest n shortest ride height.

Any other way to increase rear ride height?
