Sorry, missed this post. The 12th scale body is almost ready. We are waiting on production samples in order to submit them to ROAR for approval. Once we get the okay, and know if we do not need to make any changes, we will go into production. I hope we can have it ready before IIC.
I am very happy with the performance of it. The body is a little more aggressive than the AMR, but not quite as much as the R8C. It tends to be a little "freer" in the corners and flatter cornering at the front, which gives a little more steering.
For set-up, typically I run a slightly softer center spring with it over the AMR, which helps tame the car a little bit.
Our goal with the body is for it to provide less fade through higher efficiency so that the car can run stronger throughout the run. I feel we achieved this with the body. In 13.5, I am slightly faster on hot lap and about 2-3 seconds faster over the AMR.
