i was trying to mount the huge irok tires on my overland and noticed there was bumps on the battery holds that look useless, what are they for?http://i113.photobucket.com/albums/n202/jimbo93/overland_unknown_bump2.jpg

I think those are there to help support the body mounts, and help to line up the body with the chassis.

my guess is the same as others "to line up the body"

It just helps the body clips line up with the slots while mounting the body... so you dont put it on "too far"...

Yes you can cut them off so they do not rub on the tire when it turns ;)

A tightly fitting body should still fit fine...

k thanks i think i am going to see if when i cast a mold of the tire and make it out of urethane if it is smaller or doesn't rub before i get rid of it.
