Set the Height
Once the body has been positioned left to right and front to back, it’s time to set the height. There’s no right or wrong here; set the body to the height that looks good to you. If you’re going low, you may have to cut the body slightly to make room for chassis parts, such as the bumper mounts or frame rales. On my Traxxas TRX-4 the rear bumper and bumper mount stick out past the body, making it difficult to get it to sit properly. I’m ditching the rear bumper, so in the end it doesn’t matter; if I were going to keep the bumper mount I would simply cut the body out around that area.
When getting the body to the right height on the chassis you may run into parts that interfere with it. You may have to trim the body to clear these parts.
