Would the MXP DP body fit a 200mm nitro sedan? Measurements are close.. maybe too tight.

Nice Marcus .... where can I get mine?

I want a Dp vette with light buckets to keep a realistic theme. For usgt. But I'm told running that body would be frowned upon so I sold my spare chassis instead.

Our MX-P Daytona Prototype body is 196mm wide at the front wheels and
198mm at the rear. Don't confuse the MX-P Daytona Prototype with the Riley or Corvette.

Any tips on wing placement on the Riley DP? Forward, backward?

I've got some idea for normal touring car shells, but that's one mighty kick-up under the wing, how does that interact?

As always, aerodynamics is a balancing act between downforce and drag. I wouldn't worry too much about front to back placement of the wing since it isn't that deep. I'd keep it pretty much centered for stability. The part you can make adjustments with is how much of the rear kickup you leave. Again, more kickup equals more rear downforce and more drag. Less kickup is the opposite. Depends on what the car needs for the handling you are comfortable with.

Can't really say much about the molded-in rear spoiler since we have not used the body without it. We really intended it for the look of the body. It may add a little rear downforce. You could cut it all off, but then you would have to wire mount the wing on the chassis......might not be a bad idea to try.

What I wasn't sure of with the molded-in spoiler is that when I put the wing where it would seem to "naturally fit", it looks like the wing would be very close to the top of the spoiler, and prevent air from flowing off...

I'm no aerodynamicist, though, just figured I'd ask what people run it like, and what works for them.

I'll try it in the center first, see how that goes, thanks!
