    I'm also running a Type R body, but it's a sedan (FD-2):



    What I did to extend the rear body mount is to use longer screws, and some plastic spacers to extend them:



    Hope this helps!

    Hey man, what tires are those? I'm on the hunt some inexpensive replacements as I've just worn through mine. Only lasted 7 3s packs....

    These are are cheap wheels and tires from Amazon:

    The tire compound is pretty soft and balloons more than the stock tires, but it has much better grip (and is pretty cheap as well). There are also different wheel and tire combos on Amazon at similar prices. Just search up "1/10 touring tires":

    FYI: the Amazon wheels have the same offsets as the stock front wheels, so the rear wouldn't be as wide as stock.
