Has anyone ever tried this body?
How does it feel?
Which one is better between the sophia and the mulsanne?

Honestly my BMIDB10R ran just as well with the Parma DB9 body as it did with the Mulsanne. I haven't ran the Sophia yet. If you are planning on racing you should check the rules with your local track. If they follow the WGT rules the Mulsanne will not be a legal body.

I tried both the Mulsanen and the Sofia when I was running 4 cell 13.5 and found that I preferred the Sofia. The Mulsanne felt significantly more stable and with more power it would probably be the better body.

Doesn't London use SCAR rules where you have to use realistic bodies (predominately HPI if I recall)?

Yes london uses hpi bodies with the scar cars, but the w-gt cars we can use w-gt bodies hence the mulsanne.

While the Mulsane is made to fit a WGT car it is technically not a WGT body according to standard WGT rules. Many clubs don't follow those closely and allow the body.

This is the type of body they are trying to avoid. Personally I think this is they type of body they should be using. The rule is front engine rwd car but I'd love to see it be GT1 cars like the Mulsanne and super cars like the Zonda.

+1. I think these style bodies would set the class apart and make it more attractive. I run one from time to time and I like it quite a bit. Sophia might be faster, but the Mulsanne is just so cool.

This body is not new just been re released.I ran it about 7+ years ago. It is not legal for world GT. But your group can run them if everyone in your group does.As for the Sophie that's all I've ever run.I just got the vette and a new chassis but have not run it yet.

It used to be the Porsche 911 GT1 body. As far as I can tell it was slightly reworked to avoid licensing issues.
