Default How to lower a traxxas stampede's body

Well, after much time, i've finally decided to get rid of my pede's attroticiously high body. I ve rad around, i believe the most efficent way is to cut and drill the front body mounts (rears r easy)? does anybody know how much i should cut them?

Does it look good.... Well that's depends on what you like. I personally don't like the Stock Pede body but.... I personally think it looks better because you can no longer see the chassis hanging under the body. The unexpected benefit of doing this is the truck is less top heavy. Not but much but every little bit helps. After doing this I did notice the truck was a lot less likely to tip over.
