Anyone tried a Nardo on high grip carpet compared with a PF Speed6?

In March 2014 our Team driver Viljami Kutovonen taked the victory in the Modified class at the big international LRP Master race, closing in front of Ronald Volker. He used the Nardō body and the carpet was high grip, so basically we can say that this body is very fast, if compared to the US body that you mentioned, Nardō have more steering and more traction in the 2nd part of the turn.

In case you will feel the car nervous on carpet with the Nardō bodyshell, we suggest to move to the new M15 model that is neutral and with less steering (easier to drive), official debut race with this body was the Mibosport Cup in CZ 2 weeks ago, we closed in 1st position in front of WC Marc Rheinard, young talent Yannic Prümper used our body on his BD7 founded it "great, good and great corner speed as well as a stable rear end" his comment after the victory.

Thanks.
I will be taking one to round 1 of the ETS, I think it's held on the same carpet as the Mibosport Cup

Well, I got to run the Nardo at the last round of the ETS in Czech Republic and it worked well. It gave me more steering than the PF Speed6 and still felt pretty stable.
I then tried a slightly safer version of the setup with the Nardo at a race series in the UK and it was too difficult to drive.
So provided you have very good grip it's good for carpet.

Interesting seeing how different body manufacturers spec their bodies for high/low grip conditions. Protoform spec their lowest downforce body (mazdaspeed 6) for high grip conditions, and spec their mazda 6 GX body (high downforce) for lower grip condition.
Bittydesign do the opposite. I suppose it might come down to driver preference. I found that I use agressive bodies when traction is low. It helps to get traction. As grip comes up, I notice many guys go to lower downforce bodies. I find the lower downforce bodies to work better in very high grip conditions too.

Im in no hurry. I have plenty of bodies to paint. I was just thinking of getting one just because its a BMW. I still have one of the old Protoform M3s and even a 1997 Opel Calibra. Heck today I found a Saleen S7R which Im quite happy about!

I must confess I've found the opposite as the extra front end that come with low grip and a high downforce body tends to make the rear loose, so the car is hard to drive.

I just opened my box from bitty design and got to say these bodies are very nice.







Hopefully I'll have these bad boys painted to the correct Beemer livery specifications.

Im not real happy with Bitty Designs right now. I had given up hope of a new BMW body ever being produced so I picked up an older Mazda 6. Now they come out with this and they know that Im going to buy a couple even though I don't need them. Somehow, the Bitty Designs people are mind readers and that makes me upset. I guess I need some retail therapy from AMain.

To those that may have misinterpreted my last statement, I just thought it was funny that I just picked up the Mazda right before these came out. I will most certainly buy at least a couple of these bodies because, lets face it, they look AWESOME. Thank you Bitty Designs! I in no way meant to disrespect Bitty Designs.
