ROAR approval is in the process, shouldn't be too much longer. It has already gained EFRA approval as well.

I just ran the Dart last night. It is an excellent body to keep with you in addition to the Mazdaspeed6 for carpet racing. I feel like it has better overall downforce at high speeds across the car, a little bit more steering. The balance is very similar. I think this body will shine in faster, flowing turns more than the speed6 but still have similar overall performance.

I took the TQ and win last night. As well as the provisional track record . Give it a try. I'm sure most of you will like it!

Not sure if it was just the one i got or not, but the body is off from side to side. The wheel well shape, cutout lines etc are different from right to left. Im assuming its in how it was pulled and came off of the mold, just wanted to point it out in case its a mold issue?

BTW, its a great looking body

I ran this today on carpet. Usually most are running Speed6. It was nice. Not a huge difference for me but a little more steering and seemed a bit more stable on the straight. I will use it again.

Default Got mine!!

Picked it if up last weekend, can't wait to try it out @ Horsham slowbird race this weekend. Love the aggressive look and the Huge grille. Body fit my Xray T4 like a glove without any excessive trim around the wheel well
