Default PF '71 T/A too short on a TC6

I was test fitting a newly cut out Protoform '71 T/A on my TC6.1 and I noticed that it is too short. The nose cone is right up against the front bumper and the wheel wells are too far forward. I cut the body and the nose right along the score lines. Has anyone else noticed this?

Can you trim back the foam bumper?

That is an option. I have other Protoform bodies and they fit fine.

The front wheels are close enough, but I will need to reduce the wheelbase at the rear of the car.

maybe it's the camera angle but the whole thing looks to far forward
have you measured and compared the wheelbases ?

I had the same problem when mounting the body on an HPI Pro 4... You'll have to trim the front bumper to fit the body properly.

It is too far forward, the front bumper is pushing it forward.
