This will give you an idea of the size

The AWD chassis fits tight.

Well, the Enzo is a large body to begin with. But the picture of the Insight and the Audi TT was a much better show of how small the Insight is.

With the tight fit, how is the performance? Does it have the tendency to pop off, any rubbing?

It rubs a bit front and rear with the rubber tires, I need to address that. The Mini-z wheels standard diameter is a bit oversized for that body.

Had to rethink my question. I thought we could size the wheels to fit the scale of the body better, but it's the tires that are standard size and are the issue. Unless we could find smaller tires................

Its impossible to size the wheels down, because of the ground clearance (is is already very low).
I will fix the rubbing on the 3d model by slightly enlarging the front wheel wells where it rubs (behind the wheel when steering) and rear (rear bumper slightly rubbing the tire).

Will this effect the scale appearance of the car?

It is about 1 or 2 mm, you will see no difference by eye.
