I had no issues mounting this one. It seems to be thicker on the front corners than the other one.

Actually, if he trimmed the body on the cut lines, it's not too high.  The McKee sits up high in the nose compared to a typical Ti22. And I never cut the wheelwells until after the body is pinned. But I agree a block with a guide recess would be better.

Just get a little shoe goo for that split, after you paint it, it will be fine...

 

 

If nothing else, trim it properly, paint it, put a little "ShooGoo" in the corner and use it as a practice body...

Exactly what I planned on doing! I have several more McKee's on hand. So I'm just going to do another one. This one will be used for practice or as a back up.

OK then you're good to go. If you don't have shoo goo what I'd do is cut a thin slice of bodyproofing, bend it 90 degrees, and reinforce the cut. Now go win a race  :dance3:

:good:
