Set the Height

RC Car Action - - HOW TO PICK AND MOUNT A TRAIL TRUCK BODY -

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.
