Default body opinion for tamiya gt2 class for TA-05 car

Seeing what people thought is the best body for the gt2 class in the tamiya TCS race. Im using the TA-05 kit. Remeber it has to be a tamiya 190 mm GT or Sports car body.

Lets try to narrow it down, and i should be a little more specific. Looking for the body with the best down force/handling.

pro-line makes great bodies like their mazda6 190mm. great for performance but i personally dont really like its look. depends on if you want it to look really cool or not. pretty much any 190mm body will fit the ta-05

Don't forget about Parma, they make some great handling bodies that are underrated.

Default From what I understand...

... the best handeling bodyset for the Tamiya TA-05 cars was the Raybrig NSX

It may require a conversion to IFS.

Didn't the TCS races this year specifically disqualify the NSX body?

My bad...

Quote:
Any Tamiya 190 mm GT or Sports car body is permitted with the exception of the
VERMAC 350R GT (AKA EBBRO 350R) and all Honda NSXs
http://www.tamiyausa.com/articles/ln...rules%20V4.pdf

I'm going to be running a the Corolla Axio apr GT body in USGT. Not exactly sure how that stacks against the NSX.

The F430 is very good. Looks sharp, too.

Hi,
I had a similar thread not so long ago Best Tamiya Touring Car Shell

And got similar suggestions as you have, hahaha.
But I did take one opinion and that was for the Legacy Version 2 shell. I have since tested against the Protoform Speed6 & LTC Shells (which most of us are familar with), at two different tracks, and my opinion is it falls between the Speed6 & LTC Shells. It has more steering then the 6 but not as agressive as the LTC.
I was so surprised by this as I now plan to use if for non-Tamiya events as well.


Hope this helps....
