The body isn't finished yet you may also note there isn't a wing on the car - this can also be pretty useful.

You should have a closer look, before you say that Fmolzer I think I've mounted it a bit too far foward - tried for the +2mm trick, but think I've got more like +3mm

Aslong as it is +3 on both sides and not +3 on left and -1 on right side, I would not be too worried....

Mark, trim the wheel wells bigger. You will definitely have problems during race with the wheels getting stuck under the bodyshell.

Mounting the bodyshell about 2 mm forward would give a little more steering according to Julius.
