Default Is the 2.0 8ight wing sit higher then the 1.0 truggy wing

I know its a stupid question but I am putting a Jconcepts Punisher body on my 1.0 and I am not overly thrilled with the wing mount location...its basically perfectly level with the body. Maybe this a good thing I dunno. Any suggestions are welcome. I am just looking at some of the photos of 2.0's and the mount looks like it sits noticeably higher. Maybe the mount is longer i dunno. Maybe I am being overly picky. I can take some pics to show what I mean after i cut the rest of the holes.

The mounts are the same between the 1.0 and 2.0. No difference in length there. It may look like it because of the 2.0 body style, but they are the same height.

Now that its all mounted up this is what it looks like. It seems that this is as low as I can get the body. I dunno.

Because you are trying to put a 2.0 body on a 1.0 without a 2.0 rear shock tower, which mounts the body LOTS lower than the 1.0.

BTW I am putting some stickers on....lol. So the shock tower sits lower, good to know. Are the shocks the same length or different also. I can get a rear tower cheap enuf on flea-bay.

The shocks on the 8ight-T 2.0 are much longer than the 8ight-T shocks. The front shocks on the 8ight-T 2.0 are the same length as the rear shocks of the 8ight-T. The Droop settings on the 8ight-T 2.0 are roughly 110mm in the front and 130mm in the rear opposed to 96mm and 107mm.

The 2.0 rear mounts are much lower than the 1.0. This is why your wing sits right on top of the body. It all boils down to aerodynamics and how the air moves over the body at speed. The wing is designed to apply additional downforce on the rear of the truck to give the rear more bite. If you look at a side profile view and the wing is continuos with the body of the truck the downforce is altered and the wing is not as effective. You will need to drill new holed for the rear body mounts to drop the body down. Thats all it is.
