I would say the Venom GT since it replicates the only 300mph body design in the world....

IMO theses bodies would be the best for USGT class:

R-TEK GT, clear lexan body w/ wing, R TEK - Exotek Racing

P-ZERO GT, clear body lexan w/ wing - Exotek Racing

Bitty Design Venom

Whichever body you like... there are a bunch on the list that all have something special about them. And all capable of being competitive

The Venom has never actually driven anywhere, let alone at those speeds.

I thought the venom was going to be my new go to body . I was wrong . Locked the car down to much lost the aggressiveness I need so I will stick with the p-zero

You got to drastically change your car's setup to run the Venom body... You need a loose rear setup with extreme rotation....Good luck...

Makes sense, to have a car travel at 300mph (allegedly ), it needs to be as stable as it can or it'll turn into a giant ball of flame.

The Mon-Tech EB1 is now USGT certified... so I think we will soon see how it stacks up in North American black carpet racing
