You really need to get back out, the track was great at CH yesterday and my BMI car was awesome.

Harry; just another suggestion for you. I would suggest that you try a body change also, I have found that on our track(which is very low bite due to the indoor offroad track and low usage) that going to a parma HD 8 really helped

I appreciate the input. I had a nagging feeling that the EE1 [I was the only one running that body last Saturday as far as I'm aware] wasn't getting it done in the conditions as well, so I picked up a Speed 12, which seems pretty popular locally. Got it trimmed this afternoon, gonna slap some paint on it tomorrow and include that in my testing this week as well.

I find in general most of my cars have worked better with a Speed 8 of some sort. I believe this is largely due to the room the body has under it to allow the suspension components to move unhindered.

Speed 8 HD for low bite, EE-1 for medium bite, AMR for high bite. I like the way the R8 Black Art fits the car, but I haven't been able to make it work. I swapped an R8 to an EE-1 Sunday and the car was instantly better. Some have told me it's great for insane grip, but we don't get that here.

The CRC R10 looks cool, I like the open cockpit. Anyone tried it?

The R10 is also from BlackArt and is a good body for medium to low bite tracks. Lots of steering in this body...
