Default LOLA VDS Body Mounting

When mounting a Lola VDS body on a200mm car, does mounting the body more foreword or back influence the handling of the car? Mounted more foreword would put more force on the front tires generated by the aerodynamics I think.(More leverage) Is this why the big 1/8th scale guys have soooo many bodies they bring with them to the track? Thanks in advance.

I've only tried out 2 bodies on my G4 - the Lola and the GTP.

I know that the amount of downforce is incredible with that shape of a shell and I personally think that if you were to mount it too far forward, it could cause lift on the rear of the car at high speeds, just because of the amount of downforce on the front.

if you decide to try it, though, please let me know the results.
