i mount all my bodies at the legal height of 115mm and never had a issue with tire rubbing

Figured I would give this thread a bump and an update on the new Zoo Wolverine body. 21.5 TC on black carpet, small track and medium/medium high traction.
I tested 3 bodies last night; wolverine, new twister, and baybee. I tested all 3 bodies on two awesomatix mid motor cars, one with Clayton's setup, and one with my setup that I have been working on forever...

Verdict, the baybee is out! Maybe best on newer layout tracks where traction hasn't developed yet, but I have never really liked this body. Other guys at my track really like it, so I keep trying it, figuring one day it may just click. Really the night came down to the twister vs wolverine battle. Both bodies handled very similar, with the wolverine maybe rotating a little more in the mid corner in "lollipops". But, both cars, setup miles apart, showed that the twister was faster by about 1-2 tenths a lap on an 8 second layout. All in all though the wolverine was a very good body, and pretty stable, the twister just set better going into our low traction lollipop allowing it to get around the corner better than the wolverine, which over rotated in that spot. If it wasn't for that one spot, I would say the wolverine was better.
