At the cutline, it's only 1.200" in the back,  with tall .835" tires, but a heatsink on an FK still fits underneath.

 

Uprights easily fit under the body.

Mike,

 

Why don't you send some samples to SCRRA for their approval?

I checked out the body at Mike's yesterday, very impressive. Great cut lines around the entire body so it should be simple to trim. Getting an F1 body trimmed up nice and flat and square is something I always have problems with.

That is one nice-looking body. Dead straight and most importantly left side exactly like the right side. That's how every body should be mastered from here on out.

I will need a few of those please.
