The handling spectrum graphs that pf provides for their bodies is pretty handy. However, I cannot find one that includes the USGT bodies (camaro and lfa). What can I expect for handling characteristics from each of these bodies?
Thanks in advance,

The Camaro is the better of the two as far as handling wise more balanced IMO. It works better the lower you can mount it. The LFA has more steering but also has way more rear body tucks.


PF....when you bring out your next USGT body please try to make it sit lower like the Corvette did not as tall as the Camaro. Take a look a what the NEW real car Trans AM TA2 series is and how these cars are just screaming to be made into RC car bodies....American muscle that has GT looks!

Both of these bodies we had developed before the USGT/GT10/Spec GT craze really took off, so they were never really designed to cater to the racer. Hence why the Camaro sits so tall, and the LFA is 200mm (was meant for drifting).

We have 2 new GT bodies currently in the works. Now that we know what racers are looking for in this class, they should give a great balance of looking awesome/scale and on-track performance.

Thanks for all the suggestions everyone!

Thanks for the info cant wait to see what you guys come up with. Im growing tired of looking for bodies not in production anymore.

That would be cool. It does look a bit like a McLaren MP4-12c

Whatever it is, it will probably be a great USGT shell.

Yup I bet you're right, that looks dead on. For some reason the only Mclaren I could think of was the P1 and I knew that wasn't right.

It is close, but the new PFM-10 looks different in several ways compared to the PFM-12. One thing for sure, it is not a McLaren by any means.
