I'll try and re-clarify what Difuser said with a timeline...


INITIAL RELEASE: 1476-0 Stratus 3 (no hood dimples)
MOULD CHANGED: Protoform modify the original mould to what is now the carpet version. Result is 1476-0 Stratus 3 (hood dimples).
REISSUE OF ORIGINAL DESIGN: Protoform recreate the original mould and name it the All-Purpose. Changed mould is named the Carpet. Result is 1476-0 Stratus 3 C (hood dimples) & 1476-1 Stratus 3 AP (no hood dimples).


So, with a 1476-0 header card you could have an AP shell (original release), or a C shell (modified mould). I think the newest cards say "Carpet", this is definitely a C shell. The sure fire way of telling is by looking for the dimples on the hood.

With a 1476-1 header card you will ONLY get an AP shell.

(IMHO Protoform made a misjudgement by doing a running change on the original 1476-0, so you have two different shells in the same packet)

Hope that helps.

Hebiki, the carpet version will work well on a high bite track. It was designed not to be so aggressive on a high traction surface, aka, carpet. But well prepped outdoor tracks may benifit from less downforce as well.......Especially if you run stock or 19t modified, since downforce equals drag.

You only want more downforce if your car is loose with less, basically, the lowest downforce that your car handles well with.

Even in F1 they take wing out to increase speed in the straights!....., Jim

Chris I have been running both and there is slight differences but not much. If you got one run it, overall the body is good outdoors.
Rod has said out at TA it has been a real good body everywhere.
