What is the best Tamiya body to run? TCS will be in Salt Lake in two months and I want to be prepared.

The new NSX should be the body to have, esp since they've introduced it in a lightweight version. Very neutral handling, sorta like the stratus 2.0. Also, it doesn't have a tendancy to lid skid and stay turtled because of the roof scoop (roll hoop )

The lightweight one it made of thinner lexan and that helps lower the weith of the car ever so slightly. I have both and the car feels more on its toes with the lightweight one on. Rick

ok heres my current setup, i like so i'm gonna keep it for awhile, maybe play around with sway bars.
if anyone tries it, let me know how it works for your.

Front
damper position hole = 3
upperarm position hole = 1
camber = -1.5
height = 5mm
rebound = 24.4mm(measured from top of axle to ground)
front drive = diff (1/4 turn tighter than back)
stabilizer =none
sus.mount spacer F=0.7mm r=0mm
toe out = 0.5

rear
damper position hole = 4
upperarm position hole = 4
camber = -2
height = 5mm
rebound = 24.4mm(measured from top of axle to ground)
upperarm position = b
diff (just tight enough not to slip)
stabilizer =none
sus.mount spacer F=2mm r=2.1mm

shocks = factory
length = factory
sus blocks = "A" blocks all round (2degrees toe-in rear)

pinion/spur = 42/78
motor = johnson 540
tires = kyosho belted 35 (these are a massive improvement over the kit tires)
wheels = +2mm offset
