Lightbulb All new Dodge Dart 190mm from PROTOform

After much testing, we're proud to bring the legendary Dodge brandname back to the electric sedan wars! Dodge Stratus bodies (of various manufacturers) were
used to win a majority of the big races around the world from 1999 to 2005.

This time it's the more swoopy looking DART that takes up the challenge. At it's first ever race - the 2014 IIC is Vegas - Keven Hebert and Juho Levanen placed
their Dart bodied racers solidly in the A-Main. Keven finished 5th overall in a tough field of racers with the Dart. An encouraging start for a body so new.

@daleepp

So on carpet small track (little smaller than IIC) how would the characteristics be different from the Speed6.

Just curious as that is what most are running here.

@goin2drt,
I can help you with this one. Check out this Body Handling Spectrum we made up, the Dart is included based on the feedback of our team drivers.

Eric, Thanks. I am sorry I haven't introduced myself to you yet but you have gone to both tracks I frequent, TQ and Tamiya. Usually been using LTC-R at Tamiya and Speed 6 at TQ. For TQ how will the Dart perform? I am sure you have tested there.

Thanks.

More down force and more steering then a Speed 6. Eric ran one at Round 1 @ TQ looked sick.

Thanks. I like that. I could use a little more steering.

I ran at TQRC today with Eric and we had a 1 and 2 finish while he was running the Dart body and I had the LTC-R. That body looks as good as it handles as we battled on the track and I got to ogle over that red Dart at his pit. I can't wait til It comes out! I must have one soon! When is it due?
