One common question is: "Are the ROAR legal?"

The XFR and TSX are already ROAR legal. We are currently in the process of submitting the other two, should be ready shortly.

Do you have descriptions of the style or characteristics of each body? Or what surfaces and situations each is suited to?

ie: which body would be most suited for high speed, med-low grip ashphalt?

Or can you compare to well known shapes like the MS6 or LTC for example?

Ordered! Henrk was using the GSF right?
Oh snap, Nick can you look up my order and make sure I get the .07mm ones. I didn't see where to specify.

I have also asked Blitz to try and give me the best comparisons for the Mazda 6 and LTC as well. As soon as I get their answer I will pass it on.

From Blitz,

For LTC - its between TSX(60216) and GSF (60217)
For Mazda6 - WRX (60215) - this also is most recommended for running CRC carpet

Also some separate research for those interested. Blitz bodies TQ the Reedy Race of Champions 13.5 class with the TSX (60216). And the last round of ETS Pro Stock in Luxemburg with GSF (60217).

ETS really tells a lot! We have been following ETS and have been requesting these bodies for a while.

We will have them in our store soon!

I ordered two of those. I think they will do just fine for my club racing too.

when you say the ltc is in between the two bodies. Which body is more aggressive. For example on a scale is it TSX<LTC<GSF (more steering to least steering)
