Default Tamiya Body Thread..Handling & setup info

post your results of the various Tamiya bodies here
I will start All are IMO

Nsx: very neutral handling,good steering and rear traction.

Cusco subaru: lots of steering. tried the light wt. carbon wing still loose. switched to the hpi wing, better but needs a little more rear traction

Nissan gtr34: best i have run so far...excellent steering and rear traction. very good feel. use with tamiya lt.wt carbon wing or hpi for best results.

nissan gtr35: a little less steering than the r34. also neutral

Anyone try the new lamborghini lp560 super trofeo ?
looks kinda interesting to me

Am currently using the GTR35 with stock plastic wing in RC"GT". Pretty neutral, I like it. The only reason I tried it was that I really liked the sinister look of this body so I guess its a win win.

NSX (IFS version) - mine has a slightly oversized lexan rear wing (mean for 20mm bodies) DIYed onto it. It has a very nice, neutral feel to it.

Garaiya (with lexan race wing hopup)- significantly more "pointy" than the NSX based on my setup, making it difficult to drive without changing my settings.

My NSX shell is a year old and already pretty beatup, but still my favorate

which tamiya body would be the best handling body, many say the nsx isf version so 2007 nsx with the optional racing wing (lexan) with maximum down force, what other tamiya body would be comparable to the the potofoam mazda 6 or ride subaru legacy body, thanks

I like the Honda HSV just feels good, had a lambo body and all I can say
is you need to run a larger front bumper or the body front end drags and bends catching the asphalt. With the larger bumper it was just ok to long a body in my opinion.

Anyone have any input on the Ferrari 599xx and Audi R8 bodies?

The R8 seems similar in aerodynamics to a Mazda 6 touring body......well as close as any Tamiya body has ever been...

Easy answer, the Tamiya Subaru Legacy B4 2.0

If you want something scale looking, then I would still go for the NSX 2007 with wing kit.
