Guys, I'm in the process of fitting the PF Stratos body to my WCE - do you just cut the bumper to fit it on ?

show up !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Wow, someone forgot to take their meds... I'm sure I'm the talk of the whole nitro community

If I'm not mistaken, right is still right, and left is still left, so the rest I think I can figure out with a little time.

Don't you have anything better to do than make new names on here to hide behind just so you can come on this thread and talk crap to me?

Just take an x-acto and trim the front edge of the bumper off until it fits, you'll have to take a good amount of material off. If you want to clean up the front edge just use a sanding bit on a dremel, or if you have a belt sander that will hurry the process up.

I have perfected the art of bumper trimming over the years

A kitchen knife and a lighter. Once trimed to your liking, I burn off around the trimmed parts

I'll give that a shot, didn't have a belt sander handy when I cut my bumper so it's still a rough cut.

When building up the front diff, are the outdrives the same as the rears?

Here is a better copy of my setup. Thanks to Scott Fisher....

The front width is 198, but I wanted 200. Forgot to measure before the race, my bad.

Did I screw up your clutch? Let me know what I screwed up on this and I will fix it and resend it to you.
