But everybody's feet are different...You never had an uncomfortable pair of shoes? You probably had them on backwards.

I agree that it is better to design unique shells specifically for one handling trait but that will cost a fortune to make and ultimately buy. At least they design the wheel wells large enough to allow some mounting flexibility. Even some Tamiya bodies can't be used on certain chassis....

beside the mounting of body forward and back 1 mm make the difference of the weight transfer also mounting the wing forward and back 1mm also make a difference as well

So does this body need to be mounted forward or does it have a good amount of steering with the front wheel wells close to center ?

I'm not so sure about the kicked-up rear deck. Looks very artificial and racing-only, nothing any car manufacturer would make...

Then again, I'm not champion-fast, so my opinion is more subjective than objective. It's hard to judge the lines of a car body at racing speed, anyway.

I got my new 2.0 from Eric himself yesterday! Looking forward to getting it mounted with my new PF magnetic tool. Congrats on the podium! You need to check out Stockton this next weekend for some major carpet racing. Traction is insane.

Ran the LTC2.0 for the first time last friday night.
Mounted it up in a similar position to where I mount my LTC's, 6mm off the bumper of a T4.

On track, the 2.0 is noticeably sharper and more aggressive than the LTC, and seems to have more steering all round. Jumping back to the LTC, felt like going from an LTC to a Mazda. I like it..

As for lap times... need to have a slightly more consistent night and track before I can make a better assessment on what's quicker. Think it will be a case of carrying both and seeing what suits the conditions, which is no bad thing IMO.
