Default Rear Body Mounts

The rear floating body mounts work really well in 1/8th scale. It really helps to keep the body level during cornering. Why is it not used in 1/10 sedan? It seems it would help the aero for sedan bodies a ton. Is it ROAR leagl?

I know...I just had to post this. My friend bought a MTX3 of a guy that said this would not affect it's handling and I have to agree...as long as the car was'nt moving! That is bent just over 8mm!!!! The former owner smashed it into a mailbox a couple days after I sold it to him and raced it several times since then. I have no idea how he managed to drive it but he did.

How the heck do you set the ride height with an 8mm tweak!

I guess he just split the difference....added 4mm to each side. I had a backup car so I swapped chassis's so he could race this weekend.
