Can the IRRA® post an illustration of the accepted size and shape of the cut-out?

Thanks,

Bill

Revisit the Q&A post, Bill.

 

The requested illustration has been added, a typo corrected, and some language clarified.

:) Bill, one thing to keep in mind if the wheel wells are not cut out enough the front tire will get hung up and jam up the body in some wrecks. You will then have to stop the car and pop the body back in place. Not fun!!

Not just wrecks, wouldn't they rub in general? The bodies sway a lot on these cars.

Of course to all. Why anyone would not cut the whole opening out beats me.

Better aero and more speed down the straight of course. Oh wait these are not drag cars, LOL.
A motor is only as fast as the chassis it's in.
