Montech product in the US
 
Anyone who is looking for Montech products in the US, Awesomatix USA is going to start carrying them. We will be starting off with the Nazda 2.0 TC body, and F1 wings (maybe bodies too? im sure hanulec will post and let us know).

The Nazda 2.0 is very popular in europe, it has similar characteristics to the PF speed6, but with better mid-corner/exit speed. Trying it at my home track today, I turned similar times to a speed6, but I didnt have to drive as hard to do them so it was more repeatable.

Let us know if there is anything else you would like to see carried in the US!

Got a few minutes on the Nazda3 and Silvy today, with much more planned for tomorrow. Today was a ROAR Reg2 race at Middle River, MD. We had to run ROAR certified bodies so I ran my prior goto, the Speed6. During an open practice between round 3 and the main I ran both bodies. They required a front body post position two holes down on my A800A.

Nazda3 has much more initial steering than the Speed6 and allowed me to perform my fastest lap time and consistently ran quicker laps. Everything was just easier, as compared to the Speed6.

I then put on the Silvy, and it had a ton of turn in, with a lot of Rear end grip. This will be far superior on asphalt than carpet, but could also work very well on carpet if you really like the LTC-R feel.

I am a big fan of the Nazda 4 on carpet. I tried a 3 after running the 4 and it didn't have the corner entry speed of the 4.

Tried the Silvy back to back with an LTC-R after racing at the Roar Region 2 race and I was a fan of it. It had more aggressive turn in on high speed sections and really liked to round off tight 180's.

I ran faster times with the Silvy than the LTC. I tend to run my cars a little pushy and easy to drive and this gave me a tick more of an aggressive feel.

I got to try all of the montech bodies Awesomatix USA is selling so far today- Nazda 2, Nazda 3, and the Silvy. As I posted before, the N2 compares to a speed6, but is easier to do fast laps with, just had a little more overall steering. The Silvy compares with an LTC, but again I think has more entry steering and rotates a little better. The N3 has maybe more entry steering than an N2, but less rotation.

My opinion is, N2 is the best choice for carpet, and the Silvy for asphalt. People who like an LTC on carpet may like the Silvy on carpet as well but it will be more prone to traction rolling when grip comes up

I have liked the Nazda2 for carpet--both new and old CRC carpet. Certainly has more mid and exit steering compared to the Speed6, and also seems to have a little more initial steering as well.

I haven't had a chance to run the N3 or Silvy as of yet. From the looks of the Silvy, it looks like a more aggressive option suitable mostly for asphalt applications, as Gee mentioned.

Sam Isaacs 01-20-2016 03:35 PM

Got a chance to try the Silvy yesterday, and I agree with Gee that it rotates less mid/exit than the N2 does. It seemed to me to have more initial steering and is very comparable to the LTC-R. Should be a great option outdoors or for those who like the LTC feel on carpet tracks. :tire:

I will most likely stick with the N2 for carpet racing, and hope to try the N3 soon enough.

We have been running these bodies for a while at RSD Speedway. They are great bodies. ReflexRacing has had them for a while in the US.
