Jason Cori used a Protoform Vauxhall body on his Reedy-winning XXX-S. Something he knows that we don't?

From what I've heard the Vauxhall body still has good downforce and although it may not be as aerodinamic as the starus it is still a good body and it looks better then the stratus. Maybe he dosn't like the stratus??

speedo, I have the clk dtm. It is a nice body. Havnt driven it yet. Still need to get it painted. I should be running it in the next few weeks.

The only aerodynamic problems I see with it is the fact that the front of it looks like an air dam. The front grill is straight up. But I didn't buy it for aerodynamics I bought it for looks, which the stratus does not have.

How about Tamiya bodies, which one has good downforce, aerodinamics, etc. Next month, I'll join the Tamiya Asia Cup in Thailand, and don't know which Tamiya's body is good. Any suggestions?? (Modena, Toyota GT-One and others like that are illegal)

daniz24: The Ferrari body did well at the Tamiya Nats but if you must have a four door, maybe the Nissan Skyline GTR?

Talking about 2 door coupes, what would your position regarding a future admission of the 2 door bodies on electric touring?
