That was on the car Chris your car looked good even with the 1-way.

For large races not sure Rain City should be having a 2-day race coming up. I have heard rumors of a couple of names but nothing firm. Baker was up last year and Cyrul the year before there is rumors of an Orion driver.......

I'll keep you in the loop if you want to come out the Seattle direction.

Has anyone here ever used the Castrol Supra body on their 415? I notice that it's never mentioned amongst the "bodies to have" for the TCS...just wondering why.

Thanks.

Yes the Protoform Alfa was alot freer than the Ride Mk3 as it should have been. The Ride will be an awesome body outdoors though.

I am hoping to get my MKIII painted up this week. If i see you this weekend you can give it a try. I am curios to see if you can feel a difference. I doubt i can. Your team logo is what my car usually looks like!

I think that you"ll like the MKII better... it rotates more than the MKIII ... the MKIII kind of has good entry...but mid to late it feels lazy.

MKII is the better pick

Chris, Dave I agree wholly the car was flat stuck with the Mk3. I wanted the II or even the I but Steve was out when I talked to him on them. The Alfa just freed the car up entirely and is the choice for just about everyone up here in Mod foam. The Mazda 6 turns in but fades mid corner.

I had a Subaru to try with the others but it is going to Worlds without me on Cartwrights car.

I have tried all of the Ride bodies on different cars and this is the way that the MKIII handles on any car

Good to find that out. I'll stick with an Alfa 2 for carpet. But I'll try my Mk II for fun. Maybe even try out the B4 body as well.

Difuser,

I tried the MK2 outdoors (Tamiya track) and I like it better than the Mazda 6 personally. I'm going to try it out (if I can make it) at SoCal this Sat. night and see how it works there.
