I just bought a Mazda 6 body.
What modifications do I have to make to get the rear body mounts to clear the wing?

Just make the rear posts stuck through the wing mounts. We use a lexan strip 3cm wide and long enough to fit over both posts and the body rests on that.

The MAzda lacks some steering especially at speed, so we mount it about 2mm forward (when looking at the front wheel arches).

Thanks Julius.
Have you guys used the Serpent Volvo body on a high speed, high traction track?

Does anyone know if they're going to make a solid rear axle?
If they are, when is it going to be released?

For someone who doesnot like this car you sure spend alot of time in this thread. And for your info the different axles are for adapting to different track types. 1/8 use solid rears.

You are the one that started this everyone here tried to be tolerant and patient.Till you continually posted negative B.S. about what you heard on other threads. So some folks kinda got tired and started speaking out . If you don't like something that is your thing .All that we ask is go about your Biz and leave us alone . We here love the car and that is our opinion. So please lighten up and enjoy life.
