I'm told it has a ton of steering-mount the wing as far back as you can, or high downforce wing. No need to mount the body forward.

It lowers the center of gravity on your car.

I have also heard the bounce off of the walls better... because they bend instead of breaking, I will let you know if this is true with in a couple of weeks, my last rw body started cracking after two weeks, (I was still learning the car, a body generally lasts me about 2-3 months)

Dale, if you haven't tried for a license already, please give the new Honda Accord sedan a try? Would love to see it for 190mm against the GX.

after racing my one lw body for a couple of weeks 3-4 at the most there where major rips along the fenders of my mazda speed 6, i took a couple of major hits but nothing that should have been too troublesome, not like grinding along the wall and having my side panel ripped off, by a button head screw

Easiest way to prevent tearing of the fenders is to reduce the amount of space between the bumper and the front of the body. If you reduce that space, the body won't flex on impact. The tearing of the lexan in the fenderwells is the result of the body flexing too much on impact, which weakens the lexan and allows it to tear. I typically leave about a 2mm space between the front valance and the bumper mounted on the chassis, and my bodies tend to last for several months.
