Default TRACK

Each of these bodys is for different tracks. Ie. The Mazda 6 is for short and more twisty tracks in comparison to the Stratus 3 which is for longer more flowing tracks. the Accord is like the Mazda 6 but it has more entry steering if I remember, but I have no idea about the memesis and would never race one. Just use what the top guys are running is the best bet m8

I dont think the nemesis can be run at big events (depending on the rules) because it is not based on a production car

From what I understand Protoform has submitted the Nemesis for Roar approval, This is due to the Major Manufactures wanting money (Licencing Fees) for the use of "their" name. I think after 2006 you wont see to many name cars like the Mazda's, Honda's, Dodges..etc. If you race Carpet you will like the Nemesis.. The new Parma M looks really good..I have the 200mm Nitro one and it drives very nice, And it is Roar approved, It's not based on any car so I guess that it no longer has to look like a real car to get Roar approval..

I would agree, Their are a few subtle differences though, The rear area is a little flatter and the rear window is a bit shorter, Lots of rear down-force, The front has a few differences also , The front window is a bit longer and has less of an angle on it, Their is more front area on the "chin" also, The outside part of the front fender has an upward angle as well, Lots of front down-force also. Looks like a short track body..

Anyone know the weight difference between the lightweight versions of the protoform touring bodies and the heavier duty versions?

i tried the Mazda 6 - neutral all around
Accord - responsive steering
stratud 3.0 - like Mazda (all purpose version) but i prefer the Mazda
Nemesis - never tried it

as far lightweight not a lot of advantage on handling they just crack easy, if you crash.

just my 2cent.

I think the information you privide is misleading (no offence)

Stratus 1 is neutral
Stratus 3 AP provides much more steering with somewhat rear stability, very good on flowing tracks as mentioned before
Mazda 6 Steering (better than stratus 3 ap) and stability but for small tracks
Nemesis never tried
Ride Accord if I have time I'll try it today but for what I have seen is usually used on small tracks like Mazda
Ride Stratus 2, Ride Stratus 3 if I have time I'll try them today

the track i frequent is more flowing with a very long straight before a sweeping turn. the chicanes are pretty wide too. so it looks like the stratus 3 AP would be the better option judging from your comments. thanks! much appreciated!

The 3.0 Stratus, to me, felt like it rotated from the center of the car- like the downforce was focused in the middle.
The M6 I like because I can drive really agressive with it, stable maybe alittle push. Nuetral all-around. Just my opinion.

I've always thought the Mazda 6 was a better big track body than the Stratus. I am running the Yokomo Accord...very close to the Ride TSX/Accord. If you like the Mazda 6, you'd like this body.
