Where do the new bodies sit in the PF body handling spectrum chart?

Alrighty, here are the twins! A little rusty on cuts and bleeds, but they came out pretty nice as I haven't painted in years!

Ran the MS7 last week on older CRC gray, and was super impressed. the car felt very stable with plenty of rotation/steering. Not once did it feel tippy or twitchy. Good job fellas!

Has anyone tested mounting positions yet on either body? Assuming neutral is always a good starting point.

We have found the Type-S likes a more neutral position. 0 is a good starting point, and this is how Rick Hohwart mounted his in winning the ROAR Paved Nationals this past weekend. Most of us were at about +2mm but you dont really need any more than this, as the body has so much built in steering. We also opted for the High Downforce Stiff wing, part #1720-00





For the MS7, we suggest mounting it similar to how you would a Speed6. +3 to +6mm depending on how much steering you want to add.

MS7 had a good weekend as well on the CRC Black Carpet. I was able to take TQ in Mod TC at the 2017 Overgeared Racing Big Chill . Captain Blowout visited me a few times that prevented the win :/.

It drives like an LTC-R, but a tiny bit smoother on entry/high speed, with more rotation in all the low speed corners. Give it a go next time you head out to a black carpet track.

I mounted mine +5mm, with the wing it comes with spaced about 1-2mm back from the front edge of the wing mount.

Default Type-S

Question for the guys running the Type-S for 17.5 TC. How are you mounting the body? Neutral or forward. If forward, how far forward?

I've got mine mounted neutral and it still has tons of steering. I have seen some setups that run them 3-4mm forward but those are mostly modified setups.
