I ran that body back when we still had boost! It was akin to driving a shopping cart at high speed.

So did I just waste a bunch of time and paint?

I'm not sure what a shopping cart would handle like...

What do you mean by "good". If you looking for the fastest then I dont know what to tell you, and most others probably cant iether. Thats the beauty of USGT, pic one of several dozen bodies and have fun. If you like AUDI, run an A8. If you like Nissan, run a Skyline, there are several. If you like Chevy, run a Camaro or Covette.
