When I mounted this body on my MRX5 using the pre marked holes, the distance was around 26mm from the bumper. Is this too far?

Hi!

When you guys measure the distance from the front bumper, what line do you take? The line that line up the two extremes that are more forward (the bumper is like an open V) or the center of the bumper that is a bit less forward than the extremes?

Regards!

Because I'm new to 8th scale. It seems where you locate the rear wing (in relation to the rear axle) is what it's all about? Then its what it is according to your likes or dislikes with the aero deelivered on that particular track and your driving? Or am I reading way too much into mounting a body?
