    My Proline FloTek body just looks off...

    Photo of the Slash

    So basically, the body seems to have some fitment problems with the front wheels. The front wheels don't match up with the fender. It still rides okay, but it just looks off. The second problem is the look of the stance with this body. When I have the body on, the wheels appear to be too inward and the fenders stick out too far. Is there any way that I could use longer front axles to widen the stance? Any help is really great!

    I believe that body meant to be used with any 1/10 2.8 tire size

    The "Flo-Tek" bodies are not supposed to fit like that but if you got the "Monster Fusion" body it would.

    Not at all... That body was meant for standard 2.2/3.0 wheels and is made for racing. There are areas in the body that are made to be cut out to reduce parachuting.

    For the OP...

    How did you line up the body to the chassis before punching the body post holes? If you used the pre-dimpled body post holes that are on the body, it will be off. Proline bodies are notoriously bad when it comes to the body post marks.

    Width at fenders: 13.3" (337mm)
    Height: 5.5" (140mm)
    Wheelbase: 13.0" (330mm)

    Regular:
    Length: 21.5" (546mm)
    Width: 9.3" (235mm)

    I really just want the stance to be wider. The wheel wells aren't horribly off.

    Well, I already bought a full set of brand new 2.2 SC tires. Looks like I'll be selling the body

    You just have to look at the hood to see the difference between the Flo-Tek and the Monster Fusion bodies.
