Judging from the pics I'd say it looks just a tad unstable!

He told me its a good body, looks really cool. Gives more on power corner exit steering. Other drivers have tested with good results. Im excited for it!

i dont understand why they 'mount them forward'... why not just develop a body that produces the same effect 'by design'?

Eric @ ProtoForm is working very hard on the new LTC 2.0. He showed us one of the prototypes at a recent WCICS race that he attended. What is nice to see is the passion he has with this design. He is really workin hard on small tweaks based on team driver feedback to improve and maximize the performance.

In person it is a great looking body! Im really looking forward to the final production release

All these pro drivers routinely mount the bodies forward or backward depending what they want. That's why they have 6 of the same body for a race.

What are the different characteristics of mounting a body more forward or more to the rear?

More nose grip or corner entry steering in high speed corners vs. rear end stability.
