1/24 lexan drag body, Do you leave the wheel wells in tact and clear or is it better to cut them out?
Wheel wells or not?

Some people are like Slinkies... they're really good for nothing... but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

For AA/FC, the choice is yours, It all depends on how wide your car is in the rear. Most anything else lexan you probably will cut out the rear wheel wells. Be advised that very few people run lexan bodies anymore, its all gone to either model bodies or resin. There are lots of rules that specify no lexan.

Most of the Drag racing at Slots-A-Lot on LI,NY is Hardbody. Bracket and Index are the popular formats. Lexan cars are popular with the Grudge racing.
My 'pinion....No cut outs in front. Cut out in rears. But if rules and clearance allow, full streamliner will be fastest.
When the only tool you have is a hammer, everything is a nail.
