Default all rounder

So i would assume this new alfa body has the same characteristics as the stratus, good all rounder and great for fast corners with little more steering. What are your opinion ?? that is if you have used it

I wouldn't think so, until they release a stratus 2.5, but then, you could just make your own spill plates with some scrap lexan.

Using the end plates from another wing (cut in the correct place) and bolted onto the original wing would do the trick.

Default Wings

Losi is supposed to have just the wings available.

I ran the 2.0 Alfa and the Losi Alfa back-to-back the other day and here are my thoughts:

The 2.0 felt like it was a little sluggish getting into the corner and had a little less steering through the corner as compared with the Losi. That being said, the 2.0 was a little easier to drive consitantly, yet it was, however, slower than the Losi.

To give a little more in depth comparison, I'd say that in terms of aggressiveness and over-all steering, from most to least, I'd rate the popular bodies like this:

Losi Alfa
PF alfa 2.0
PF Stratus 2.0
PF Original Stratus

The two stratai (?) sometimes swap spots on this list in my opinion. I think the 2.0 stratus is better at High-speeds than the original though.

Hmm i would have suspected the stratus 2.0 to be better in fast tracks than the original, by the way did you use the new wing for the alfa 2.0 ?? And the wing that you used in the losi alfa was it the optional wing that had a smilar design as the PF alfa ?? like the pic above ??
