That's the good ol Mclaren body. You can get them from multiple manufacturers. I know Ofna has it and Team C for sure.

It is VERY good, i did not try it with the full wing but it is perfect as is with the center cut down. Low speed steering for me was the thing that stood out the most. Not sure how quick it is lap time wise but it felt good considering the track conditions which were as bad as it gets, Rained all week last week , has not been prepped for about a month and the Pollen/ragweed count is super high right now in houston so my car was completely covered in yellow dust. Nova challenge is coming up soon so that will be the true test and i will have laptimes to compare to. I am sold though, love the looks and the handling is solid, best choice we have right now in my opinion

Sounds good, when they were released I ordered 4 of them lol. I really like the look and I really like how wide the fenders are. I was able to mount it lower than any other body I have tested. It looks very similar to the R3 with an updated rear end. Glad to hear it is working good so far. What changes are you making to the body? The rear wing in stock location seems to be back pretty far more than likely taking away some turn in, did you change that? hahaha dang it I need to get it out!!! So excited. thanks for the reply Marcus

Actually only thing i changed is the cut down center, wing is mounted in the stock location. As you can tell the turn in is great, obviously even better with track prep. I may play around with raising the actual wing via spacers and bigger side dams just for the heck of it but at least on my car its pretty damn good!
I think the width is the key to stopping the body tuck and yes the CG is lower for sure. the roofline is definitely the same as the R3 but i think that is it. Front fenders are higher, hood appears to be lower and the rear is completely different.

We're hope we can get something started again this summer.

Nice! Pretty cool it comes with two wings, these guys really know how to make the racers happy. That Top powerplant of yours sounds pretty dang good too!
Did you get the lightweight version or the regular Blitz?

Its 1mm thick, I got them from Desoto and do not recall seeing an option.
That TOP is a beast, 1.5 gallons through it and you still cant spin it over by hand
In the vid it came off at 215*! super rich from the last race down in the valley. I normally run in the 270 range, took about 8 laps before it started to shift right

Thats was my intent but it looking like its going to be about a 4k dollar investment per body style, unlikely that i will sell enough to cover that so i dont think its going to happen........
