Default Chevronmodel bodies?

Is there anyone using Chevronmodel bodies or has experience with them? I would like to know how these Bugatti and G350GT handle in compare to the usual Protoform Stratus, Stratus 2.0 and Alfa 2.0

Well I use the Bugatti..and it is very close to the ALFA 2.0 but with even more stability and more inital turn in ...but not twitchy like the 2.0.... make sure you get the S version and not the R...because the 2 handle very different..
I have a G350GT..but have yet to try it yet....(paint)

How do they handle differently?

Are these legal to race with?

Unfortunately they are not approved for ROAR use. At least not yet.

If you are looking for a nice alternative to a sedan body, the Chevron bodies are the way to go. I turned a few heads with the new body at Socal raceway. There are a few that have it, but due to the scarcity of the body, I try to use it sparingly.

Does Chevronmodel make any Toyota bodies? If they can make a good handling G35 body maybe they could make a working body for the Toyota/ Lexus race next month.

I have the EB110LM-S Super Car on my electric TC3 and I am extremly happy with it. Everytime I go on the net I'm checking to see when Speedtech will have them back in stock....

Do you think the R version handle not good or is the S version better so you donīt need the R?

Please post also when you have tried the G350GT as this one looks good to me. From what I can say from the pictures I like the G350GT more than the Bugatti. But if I could get them I would like trying 2 different chevron bodies the G350GT and one of the Bugattis.

Hi Guys,

We are inquirying about the G350GT body, but it might be an exclusive item through Yokomo. I'll find out for sure.

They are also redesigning the "R" type body to improve the handling right now.

No word on a toyota body and even if they were to design one, it will not make it for the Toyota/Lexus cup next month

We should have a batch of the "S" Type body shipping out from Japan this week, we should have them in stock next week.
