Just back from the Southern Nationals in Nashville. Used a Cadillac body on my Xray t4 in USGT and finished eighth in the A main. Three or four Cadillacs in the A. Great body works very well on carpet.

He is not saying it dont work on asphalt, he just saying that after driving with it this weekend he can comfirm its carpet characteristics. I too attended the USVTA SOUTHERN NATIONALS. I have to say in the USGT class the ATS-V handled similar to my LTC-R 17.5 TC body on carpet. I look forward to my next race with this combo.

OK, that was not the thought... elaborating on the question; What Characteristics make it good on carpet and how would that differ from asphalt needs.

I think it is very stable and has good turn in. A good combination to have. I guess the best thing for you to do is get one to try and then you can form your own opinion.

How does it compare to the PFM10? I have both for USGT, both are unused.
