I think it is because the internet cables aren't set up for the heat here in Germany - lots of bit errors, you know!

Talking of pictures: just looking at the 200mm Euro championship qualifying on mytsn - all the shells seem to be dodges!! Is this shell a good all-rounder or is it especially good for some circuits.
What's the best car for a circuit with some tight low-speed corners and which one is better for flowing corners and high speed straights?

Cheers, Mark.

The ultimate body is of course the Lola shell. Good steering with good rear downforce.

For touring car shells, the Stratus is a pretty balanced all rounder. Good for high speed tracks as it gives a lot of rear downforce because of the large rear wing. I would say moderate to good steering too.

For a review of different types of shells you can refer to this article at mytsn

Thanks!

I'll have to look out for some PROTOform bodies, they look a little better than the Serpent one I have.

Cheers, Mark.

Exclamation Bodies

Bodies has been the topic of some debate over here. Stratus 2.1 has been outlawed because its doesnt "look" as the orginal Stratus, for example. The efra list contains hotties such as Nissan Sunny and Volvo 850 Estate...

To be allowed the body must be based on a car which has raced in a 2L international touringcar championship. Remember this applies to EFRA.

(Im using Stratus 1 and 2.1)

The Alfa Romeo from Protoform looks cool too. I saw Punisher drove it last weekend with a lot of steering.
I've heard is not Roar legal yet though.

The more horizontal the position is (meaning use lower mounting hole on the shock tower) the softer it feel on the suspension. Kinda like using softer spring.
