Just wanted clarification on mounting Stock Car body mounting. If I read it correctly, it can be cut to the bottom door line?

Yes Jeff that is correct, but some of the new bodies have the door line so high that the wheels would be sticking through top of the hood and rear finders. So cut to the bottom of the door line if you can and still have the car work. There are also rules about cutting out the wheel openings.

First, make sure you can still see the door line.  Second, there is a minimum distance from the top of the front wheel well to the top of the fender.  Third, the wheelwell openings must be cut where they are molded, no "creative cutting"  (that includes overall size of the wheelwells as well as positioning front and rear). 


Don't try to make a front spoiler where there is none.


The new Red Fox Charger has very high door lines...the door line rule is pretty much moot on these.

The .210 rule ONLY applies to the front wheel wells of the VFC Charger and Daytona.

As John noted all others must be cut on the proper wheel well lines.
