Losi Skoda on asphalt: too much steering, no rear traction.

I back-to-backed the mg with a stratus 2 last night on asphalt in modified (schuie mi2)

I felt like maybe the stratus had a touch more steering, but the mg was certainly rock solid. the rear wing area especially seems to work well. Overall I found it very safe, very confidence inspiring that the car wasn't going to do anything too weird.

I'd happily use it again - particularly on big/high speed tracks.

I run the skoda body on TC3/BMI on asphalt and with my setup it worked fine. Plenty of steering and rear traction. I want to try the Mazda 6 next.

I've been using the Protoform MG body for the past 3 weekends, and I find it to be a very neutral handling body. I just bought another one, and don't see any reason to change.

Geppetto, Are you racing indoors on carpet or outdoors on asphalt? I just bought a MG body and want to try it out his weekend on an outdoor track that is more technical than some of the other outdoor tracks in the area.
