I used the all the solid cut lines on the body along with the mounting hole points and mine dropped right on my MRX-4X. A few small adjustments and was good to go.

For the front end use the holes towards the rear and for the rear end use the rear wider set of holes. If you run the rear long wheelbase then drill 3mm further back from those in the rear only.

Hey guys. Some of you may know that I don't run much 1/8 however I do wrench and pit alot. This year Joby has made 301 main and GLC main. We ran the R-12 @ GLC. I did do some testing @ the byrons race as well. This body is awesome. I typically have a problem with understeer, but this body alone is a huge adjusment and will help that problem. It is especially great because it doesn't give up any rear traction. At the GLC I helped DMRP break in an engine and of course I took the oportunity to drive the car, and I thought I could've been a contender with that package, and that body was real good.

C-Ya at the track...

I have to share my input on this body, and it is amazing! I went from the r11 to the r12 and the GLC and it proved to be the best body out. If you can't take my word for it, just check out the results! The car "got in" better than any body I have run, and it was "hooked up" coming off. I was also very efficient in a straight line. Thank you to Chicky and Parma, you guys are the best! By the way, the closed cockpit is easier to paint, so puffy tells me!

I mounted my R12 body yesterday and maybe because I was a little tired I drilled the holes in the wrong position

The recommeded position is 12mm in front of the bumper and mine is now placed 8mm in front.

Will the effect on handling be noticable?
