Default asphalt body?

I'm just getting back into electric sedan and need some advice on a body, we're running stock with rubber tires, extremely high traction and very tight track with a short straight.

I was thinking about the Stratus 3.0 c-type (would seem to remove some drag/traction)

How is the A-type, the Nemesis or the G6?

Not only track condition, it depends also will you use oneway/spool or 2X diff, but i think you will use one way in the case of stock race in high traction.
Try this link which maybe could help you a little:http://www.rctech.net/forum/showthre...t=touring+body

Your link for carpet oval wasn't really very helpful past one guy in hong kong saying M6/Speed 6 for spool.

I wouldn't consider running a one-way with my nitro car so it doesn't seem likely with the electric car either but that's a good point that I may have to try since the speed is so slow and brakes may not be required.

Do that few of you really test these bodies or have opinions on them?

Brain,

I would start with a PF Mazda 6, to me it is the most neutral body.

Then, after your comfortable with the car, and the way it is working, try different shells to suit your driving.

+1 The Protoform mazda six seems to be a common ground in bodies for outdoor touring. You may also want to think anout the Protoform DNA2 for asphalt.

So the 6, not the speed 6 right?

At least this isn't as bad as picking bodies for 8th onroad, I have 6 and that's not even everything that could be used.

The regular 6, not the speed 6. The regular seesm to be smoother, better overall starting point body.

How is the A-type, the Nemesis or the G6?
If your just getting back into things you should try the Nemesis. I always liked the balance of this body.

The nemesis is more of a grip body right?

I'm looking for more of a body that frees up the car, unlike the parma m in the nitro cars. I finished 17th at the nitro sedan nationals this year so I should be ok with stock electric.

I ordered the 6 and the a-type 3.0, looking for the c-type as well.

I would say no. It seemed to have less effect on the handling of the car.

Let me ask this question here...

Where are you measuring the car to get the 190mm or 200mm that I see on these body listings? I measured my GT-One 1/10th at the wheels (outside to outside) and it's 8-3/4" or 222.25mm.

I would like to get some new bodies for this car, and I can't find anything close.

And it's electric? the only thing close that I can think of is the nitro super ten class from years ago, kyosho and hpi had them I believe

Yeah, it is an electric and from what I understand, it's about 10 years old.

Here is a link to the manual request I made for it with thumbnails:

http://www.rctech.net/forum/showthread.php?t=205628

Any thoughts of where to pick up bodies like that?
