Bodyshell Handling Characteristics....
I was hoping some of you could list the bodyshells you've tried and what you found they gave you with regards to the handling and did any of you end up with the same findings I found.
I know this has been asked before but I've had trouble finding a relevant thread.
Protoform Dodge Stratus Very safe- too safe for liking, possibly good for beginners as they were what I started with.
Protoform Mazda 6 Still a bit safe but a step up from the Dodge's, very consistant
Protoform Mazda Speed 6 Gives more steering and still fairly stable.
Protoform LTC-R Even more steering and can be a bit edgy but that seems to depend on the track.
Eastcoast M Speed 6 Similar to the LTC-R, I've found it quite good on carpet
Protoform R9-R Closer to a Mazda Speed 6.
Protoform Alfa 159 I bought this to use on my wet car to give more steering but it seemed to be more like the Mazda 6
