if you angle the front shock tower back and it will allow
A. Sit lower to the chassis
B. Mount your body lower
C. Keep your servo from working so hard steering. The tires will want to flop from side to side making it harder to actually steer the car. that is why losi angles their steering components back to match the kick up. Easier steering you will have to fight less weight in the trucks ability to steer.

Just yanking your chain man.
