I just noticed something odd as a I was rearranging some of my cars on the shelves. The ground clearance immediately under the front nose on the shorttails is about 1.5mm to 2mm less than the longtails'.

I took a 30cm ruler and placed it under both the short and long tails. The shorttails base is completely level from back to front.

In contrast, the longtails underbody rises about 1mm from the front axle to the very front of the nose. I somehow doubt the real 1:1 woould have been like that as that would have created unwanted lift under the car.

Anyone else notice this with their longtails? :confused :confused
