Default Hotbodies Subaru Impreza Type B Body

Hey Guys, i just got some of these to try. Does anyone have any oppinions on the body? How does it perform on track compared to other bodies? It looks really good, hope it works similar to a Speed 6 and Ltc-R.

Looking forward to hearing peoples views about it

Thanks Antoni

Also does anyone know if this body approved for racing? I was reading through the rules and semms to fit all of the catagories. It has to submiited to IFMAR for approval which i would assume it has been. I have a picture of Atsushi Hara's car with him using this body, so this could answer my question, but i would just like to be clarified.

Thanks Again

I borowed one for a few runs at the nats, it had great initial steering, but a little loose in the rear mid corner.

My car wasnt great so hard to say, but i would imagine it fits between a MS6 and LTCR.

Where did you get it from?

I love this body. I like the looks and it drives really well. It reminds me a little of the Stratus in stability but the car rotates better.

Plus it looks better than the Stratus and is different than Mazda6 (IMO.)

If you want, just take look in Amain hobbies.

Should feel a little smoother overall. It feels like a compromise between the normal protoform mazda 6 and the mazdaspeed 6. I really like this body on high traction carpet

Just bought one of these. Body looks very nice. Hopefully it will work well with 17.5 Rubber on low to med carpet.
