Correct. With trued wheels and lightweight body... I do like standard lexan body too.. Its strange, the car feels a little more "controlled" with standard lexan.

I think you were unable to post because the pictures are too darn big!
I re-sized them and here it is.

The question i have is.. from the picture, i am assuming you shaved about 1 mm from the bottom of the lower arm??
You mentioned it worked great... what effect did you get from doing this?

I have not tried matrix, been running contact and rpm tyres...when does touch and how bad is it rubbing?
We have open track tonight so im going to try&test a lola style body on my mtx5.. It should be interesting to see how it will handle
