I'm not an advanced builder .......... I have to get things done in the easiest way possible ........... and since I don't do shows or competitions, my models are just shelf models

The lengthening of the rat packer chassis was done by cutting the chassis just behind the point at which it starts to the rear at the widest point ....... the two ends of the separated chassis are then inserted into a measured length "collar" of slightly larger plastic tubing and glued in place ....... it's that collar that adds the extra length to the chassis .......... then I built new motor mounts from plastic rod to support the front of the engine ......... I also built a plastic tube support to raise the back of the body (and drop the nose), and it also provided a glue point in the rear of the resin body .......... really very crude, but as I said, I'm not an advanced builder and I just build shelf models shhe

Here are a few pictures to show you what I did
