Default Onroad body for a offroad

I'm taking a Tamiya body and putting it on a typical 10th scale truggy. I have seen this done before, (it's a HPI e firestorm if u ask) so i have some concerns about it's super-tall shock towers. What should I do?
Heres a link to the body:

lol you can try 2 things, im not familiar with the e-firestorm, but if you can you can raise them up to see how the body works, or you can cut out for the towers, but that may not look good
