I have been running the elite for roughly a year now. It's a pretty stable/neutral feeling body, similar to the stock F2 the DTM2 came with, but nowhere near the rear end grip the P2 develops. I like it because it sort of evens out the steering aggression whilst not overloading the rear.

Proline elite and JC S2 is almost the same body.
These are the most neutral bodies you can get. No steering , or rear end downforce.
On rough bumpy tracks, these bodies do not push the car down to bottom out.
These two have also the hihgest top speed and jump the longest.

The JC F2 and original Yok body have more downforce in the rear and the original slightly more steering.
I use the original body on the stock car on bumpy astro. Cause the speed is not as high as at mod, so bumping out
is not a problem.
And on the modified car I use the F2 on bumpy astro.





On dirt I use the JC Speed body. Highedt downforce of all bodies, still enough steering. Look atvthe Worlds this year.
Many used this body.

Today's test runs on greasy astro with a rearward biased car surprised me. As it was, I preferred the F2 with the light front because it provided more off-power steering than the P2K. As the track dried off a bit, I reinstalled the steel front bulkhead and moved the battery forward, and it was time to shine for the P2K again.

Which kit exactly? The CAL3 and DTM3 are new, so what should happen to them?

Oops sry, the CAL3. After a new release it's a common procedure to "stop" the production until the issue is fixed. Just wanted to know if you found something weird

The first batch sold out quickly, AFAIK the next is in production. Tonisport has some stock left.

Wouldn't make a difference, since he has not entered his location.
