Anyone know what the weights of the .7/.8 LSF bodies?

I've used the Mazda GX all of last year, very stable but I think it's true what many say of it. Recently got a LTC 2R but found it quite edgy and occasionally found I was battling the car and inconsistent.

Thinking of the LSF... Seems like it's a more stable LTC R?

I found the lsf and ltcr to be quite similar in handling characteristics. You might want to try the gsf or gsf2. Gsf seems to fall in between the gx and ltcr.

Ive not owned the first LTCR but ive got the LTCR2.0 where its quite edgy... do you know if the LTCR was a slightly tamer version of the 2.0?

I feel less confident in the LTC2R due to its edginess...

So running the gsf II... must agree it seems to fall between a GX and LTC 2 R.. I like the aggressiveness of it.

.7 body came to about 93gm with 2 colours with medium coats and window tint. Exact same weight as the LTC... Overall happy.

The lsf seems to be able to take more hits than the gsf....

Guys, may I please ask. What is the advantage in using transparent wing?
Thanks.

None whatsoever. I've always had mine black, even in off road. If I have it clear, to me, the vehicle looks like it has no wing so for me it's more of a mental thing

I guess paint has a different friction coefficient than the polycarbonate, and a painted wing might weigh slightly more than an unpainted one....

I got to get my Als R body ready for some carpet action. I am hoping to reduce my laptimes a bit from the lsf(asphalt only) body.....

I highly doubt any effect. On the topic of wings, can anyone say they've felt a difference with wing plates and that it affected lap times

I've noticed a difference between 0.7mm wings, 1mm wings, and 1mm wings with gurney flap. However, I've never tested with/without end plates.

Oh, looking at ics from the ETS race this weekend, there are a lot of blitz bodies being used. Looks like mostly gsf and some lsf/gsf2.
