In this whole thread I haven't seen a brand that has to be in it, and that's Chevron!
If your driving on carpet and it's a tight track, try out Chevron's EB110LM-S. You can compare it with a Alfa, but in my opinion its handling is even better.
BTW, this body is huge in Japan!

Which version did you use.??? Because each version handles different.

Hey Guys, I have just painted up a new Mazda 6 shell and I will let you know what I think of it.

In the past I've used:

Proto Alfa 2.0
Tamiya 2002 NSX (TCS Racing)
Tamiya F360 Modena (TCS Racing)

We'll see how these compare.

I liked the Mazda... Not sure yet if I liked the Alfa better though... The body I'm now curious about is the Caddy....

Mazda 6 is dialed both for carpet and asphalt. The Parma Alfa is pushing too much and the PF Alfa is too twitchy. The PF Stratus is also a very good and neutral body.

The protoform dodge stratus is and all rounder, good on carpet and ashphalt, but the more i race the more i see the mazda 6 (for some reason i haven't tried that yet ).

In R/C Boats, scale does not sail.

Quarter Scale R/C boats on a pond, are experiencing what would be close to small craft advisory conditions especially on a windy day, and you would probable be bent over the side watching your cookies float away.

Cars are similar.

Who here remembers when AFX or TCR (total control racing) Curb Hugger MatchBox sized slot cars claimed 300 mph scale speeds?

300? Yeah Sure. They sure made a good dent in the wall when the magnets lost contact.

A people sized version of our Precision Models, acting the way they do around corners, is an Auto Insurance Saleman's wet dream.

They won't be close.

I'll consult my Aero Space buddy and get his educated opinion.

Afterall, he has a degree stating he know more than 'what goes up should come down eventually'.

@ F. Alonso:
Where did you get that TakeOff car-stand?
Looks really nice, i've been looking for one of those........
Smooth paintjob also, really clean!

BTW, i'm currently using the ProtoForm Opel Vectra. Quite nice, but i haven't tried anything else on my Pro4.
My next body will be the PF Mazda 6.
