You got it right bro... At least exactly what I thought about... However if you look at the touring cars that Team Serpent uses, they use the normal touring car body post. None of them uses the floating rear body mount meant for GTP / Lola bodies.
The problem with using rear floating mount type of bodies is that you are not able to use rear spacers on the rear uprights. I think you are only limited to a 2.5 mm spacer. That's about it.
I have one that I modified a little and use on my touring car bodies. It's on my Impulse PRO that usually gets a Lola shell on it. I thought it felt about the same though... Well, on smaller tracks that is. I would think on high speed tracks, the effect is felt more.
What I did was to shave off the small mount post on the floating rear mount as this is insufficient lenght to hold a TC shell. I drill a hole for a screw exactly at the spot of the old post for me to mount a new taller post.
I'll try out this weekend the floating rear mount on TC shells on my 705 on a high speed track and see the differences.
p/s: Before you remind me again or I get shot down by Mark, yes I forgot to bring pics with me... again.
I'll try and remember tomorrow
