I don't think so... The E4 is a 190mm touring car right? The Mulsanne is a 200mm pancar body. It may have trouble fitting the front/rear of the E4 because of the shock towers and shocks being too high...

Here are a couple of pics of my custom Mulsanne LMP , just finished .

Dave from G2 grimmacegrafix painted it . He is in the US and has a thread in the paint section and did an outstanding job on it .

Now the body has to come all the way to Australia for me and will be fitted on a BMI DB10R .

So any reviews yet on this body? I am running the P905b hd and that body rocks and just wondering how the Mulsanne is handling? I am considering the body just would have to undo my 235mm setup and go back to 200mm but curiosity has me wondering how this body would handle on a large track with a 3.5 motor?

More planted than the Sophia, but not up to the 235 Protoform.

Just got my Mulsanne been waitng 6 months+. Have been running HPI Lotus Elise GT body looks sweet on the track but unfortunately was trashed to retirement. I had the Elise really gripped up running 17.5 and 13.5 2 cell saddle Lipo. Has anyone run this body on a BMI DB10R.
Thanks in advance.

Sounds like you'll be the first to run it on a BMI DB10R so let us know how it handles. I might pick it up for my crc gen x 10. Currently running the 235mm Protoform peugeot 905b.

I been running this on my genx10 in worldgt lipo. cars is balanced and stable
The car has less downforce than the sophia. for sure. but it looks way better.

I use lilac on asphalt and its pretty much dialed.

Are you saying the Mulsane has less grip than the sophia?
I would have thought the LMP style would have heaps more grip than the semi sedan sophia

From my experience indoor or carpet the Sophia has more steering but feels less planted. My lap times are a touch faster with the Sophia.

I have had one on my WGT for quite a while now. Running with the vett's and sophia's. I'm not sure I can tell much difference it has been a while since I switched back. it worked well enough to TQ and Win the regional's in our Outlaw GT class. 17.5 lipo.

had it outside last weekend for it's first run on asphalt seem to work well........
