As far as bodies go look at the Penguin range for the B6/B6.1
Yeah I checked that body. not too bad to be fair, but I still feel like it lacks in styling compared to JC, but thats besides the point haha

For racing mostly York which I believe is similar to Worksop indoor track, maybe more carpet? MB Models for practice days and possibly club nights sometimes, then next year I'm hoping to take part in other clubs series and such as I improve, maybe even some regionals, so variety of tracks, its the benefit and downside of being 1H+ away from any track

Racing mainly on Astro, I really liked the P2 I painted for my son, but as I prefer nimble handling cars, I felt the rear downforce was just a bit too much for me. Of course, my son gave me a thorough trashing when we raced in the same class in Helmond/NL last year, but I sticked to my F2. Fast forward to 2019: I saw the P2K and new this was the body I wanted, but as I had sold my 2WD just a short time before, it was not to be. Then I got the chance to paint (see below) and test one and beat my personal best time with a 17.5 on my home track, and painted another one for another friend. In my book, the P2K is the best of both worlds: It offers high speed stability and does not lock in the rear end too much. It is so balanced that I bought one for my new 2WD and put the kit F2 lightweight body into the cabinet. Big thumbs up to the P2K!
Thank you, I wish I could paint my own shells in custom colours, would save a ton and let me try all these different ones

Greetings all. Purchased a B6.1D roller yesterday. Should arrive in a day or two. Been out of the hobby for about 25 years. The most modern of my 5 cars and trucks is a Losi XX. Actually my RC10 GT team truck could be a little newer. Sorry if this is the wrong place to post but I looked for a "introduce yourself" type thread and couldn't find one. Cheers

Good choice, I just got back into hobby myself after 10 or so year break with a B6.1, have to wait until September for racing to restart at local track tho , was hard picking a car to go with though for me since they all had there positives and negatives, but 6.1 seemed to have the most positives for my local area
