Default Protoform MG 190mm?

Anyone try it? Got one and painted it. I thought it had a good profile and would be fun to try. What are its characteristics? Is it Roar legal?

I've had my eye on that one, or the Mazda 6. I would have liked to get the Mercury Cougar body but it only comes in 200mm

I got the MG ZS, in metallic green. I like the body, but i haven't tested it out as much as the Mazda 6. I love the Mazda 6.

Mazda 6 body is good. I think it drives a little twitchy, but that's just my experience and quick feel of it. I prefer the Alpha.

MG
Looks like it has the front of Vauxhall/Opel Vectra and hood of the old Accord.

A friend of mine TQ'd Cleveland with the MG two years ago. I ran one a little at Nats this year but it didn't make body height the way I had it cut out.

The MG is very forgiving. The Parma Alpha is a little lighter and seems to change direction better.

2 years ago. Didn't know they were around that long ago. Thought it was a new Protoform body style?

If it was 2 years ago it must be Parmas X20.

Oops, yup it's the Parma.

The Parma's won't get pulled because of licencing like the Protoforms

I like the body on asphalt, feels very smooth with the right tire selection in stock and 19t, I haven't tried it in mod though, I will race with it tomorrow and post how I feel
