Default body opinion for tamiya gt2 class for TA-05 car

Seeing what people thought is the best body for the gt2 class in the tamiya TCS race. Im using the TA-05 kit. Remeber it has to be a tamiya 190 mm GT or Sports car body.

Lets try to narrow it down, and i should be a little more specific. Looking for the body with the best down force/handling.

pro-line makes great bodies like their mazda6 190mm. great for performance but i personally dont really like its look. depends on if you want it to look really cool or not. pretty much any 190mm body will fit the ta-05

Don't forget about Parma, they make some great handling bodies that are underrated.

Default From what I understand...

... the best handeling bodyset for the Tamiya TA-05 cars was the Raybrig NSX

http://www.tamiyausa.com/product/ite...oduct-id=84065



It may require a conversion to IFS.

I have used with moderate success:
tamiya ferarri f430 enzo and FXX bodies, the mazda rx7 and the ebbro 350 bodies.

Didn't the TCS races this year specifically disqualify the NSX body?

My bad...

Any Tamiya 190 mm GT or Sports car body is permitted with the exception of the
VERMAC 350R GT (AKA EBBRO 350R) and all Honda NSXs
http://www.tamiyausa.com/articles/ln...rules%20V4.pdf

I'm going to be running a the Corolla Axio apr GT body in USGT. Not exactly sure how that stacks against the NSX.

The F430 is very good. Looks sharp, too.

Hi,
I had a similar thread not so long ago Best Tamiya Touring Car Shell

And got similar suggestions as you have, hahaha.
But I did take one opinion and that was for the Legacy Version 2 shell. I have since tested against the Protoform Speed6 & LTC Shells (which most of us are familar with), at two different tracks, and my opinion is it falls between the Speed6 & LTC Shells. It has more steering then the 6 but not as agressive as the LTC.
I was so surprised by this as I now plan to use if for non-Tamiya events as well.


Hope this helps....
