Lower/belly-pan trimming?

Got sum Attack bodywork... Upper fits great, and lower/belly-pan fits to upper great.

Problem is, the lower/belly-pan is REALLY close to the back tire. I know the tire will grow at speed and the plastic will get torn off.

How much trimming can you do? Is this a common problem? Obviously, it still needs to be able to hold fluid...

Thoughts or suggestions are appreciated!

SOB! Thats it Tony!

I put on a 45 sprocket (43 stock) with a new chain and had to pull the axle in close. Dammit. At least I know WTF is wrong now...

Does anyone close-by sell links and chain tools???

Todd, I don't think you can just add a link....new chain?
maybe use a smaller front sproket?

Keep the chain you have for smaller sprockets and get a new chain for the larger sprocket. That's what I do, and I keep them together as a "set" so when I got to small tracks, I have it ready to go.

In the future, you can trim the lower, but you'll have to re-glass it so that it still keeps the fluid in. Obviously, if you put the proper size chain on it, you won't have to worry about it
