From the side on pics this does look like its a slightly toned down R9. The R9 had great steering but so much that the back end couldn't hold on. Will be interesting to see if this is a bit more usable.

I hope so cause that R9 was a waste of money. It looked cool but that was about it. I think I'll wait until it's been out a run by regular club racers before I jump on it.

Looks a bit like a restyled stratus


Uncannily so... I know that Dale comes on here from time to time... perhaps he'd like to tell us whether this is simply a tweak of the old Stratus 3.0 mould to avoid licensing hassles?







The detailing is almost identical in places, look at the wing supports and the number plate area, the roof pillars, the sills and just the whole silhouette.

Not that I am complaining, because I always liked the Stratus 3. Nice smooth shell to drive.

these are the details from the 200mm version of this body from protoform website...

"For the last 6 years the PROTOform Stratus 3.1 has been one of the most popular and successful 200mm gas-sedan bodies. It's still used even today in race winning performances by many top ranked pro drivers. Today, PROTOform is proud to release the P37-N (nitro) 200mm Gas Sedan body to continue that legacy. This new P37-N body uses some of the time tested and proven design features of the 3.1 but include many evolutionary improvements to aid down force and steering capabilities."

I think this is great news, I find the the stratus 3.0 all purpose a great shell. This one looks like they have tweaked the front for more down force.

Hello

Someone already tested the P37-R body?

Compared with the LTC-R which are the performances into the track.

Thanks in Advance.

I ran this body last weekend in Mod at the Halloween classic at the gate and it had less rear traction than my LTC-R. I plan on moving the wing all the way back to see if i can get a little more rear down force.

I tried this body on my tc6 and could'nt work out what was wrong with my car till I took the body off and put on a speed 6.
Not a fan at all, made the rear slide all over the place.

contrary to what other people say, I notice my car felt really 'numb' with the P37, helps me out when i was shaky

The LTC-R gave me more initial turn-in though...as for straight line stability, i never lost traction there with any shell...ever
