Is is rediculious that these big car companies have law suits against R/C body companies. As if the car companies don't make enough money and screw enough people over with their junk cars. At least Protoform makes a good quality vs. a real company making a car. and for only 25 bucks.

Anyone else race with this body yet?

I think this is the body I will be running from now on.It feels like a very well balance Mazda6. Less aggressive,but by no means numb.Plus right now everyone is running a Mazda6 at all the tracks I run at.Good rear downforce and good steering.Kind of a mix between a Stratus 2.0 and the 6.

Anyone else have an opinion?

YES, i ran it this past weekend, is EXPERT STOCK on pavement. The body handles just like a STRATUS 2.0, very neutral , with a 50/50 feel. Not nearly as aggressive as the MAZDA 6. but look at the NEW PROTOFORM CADILLAC CTS-V , IT' S AWESOME.

Thumbs up

It does look a lot like a slightly reworked Stratus.

I'm looking for a CTS-V for my new 415 right now

I hear Proto got the dodge licencing back

I might pick up one of these nemesis's when I need one. The Stratus2 had more aero (less drag) than the MG and was a bit more responsive on the Evo3...Just need to dial the setup a bit more on it.

The general shape of the front suggests stability and low downforce. Should be nice and easy to drive like a stratus
