I didnt say there was a HUGE difference.....its all the little differences (aero, stiff or soft chassis, hard, med, or soft arms and c_hubs, tire compound, weight placement....) get all the little things right and your gonna make faster laps....

I find bodies make an massive difference to the way a car drives. Even moving the wing forward or backwards on the body makes a noticable change to the car.

Changing bodies will often require a different suspension setup just to get the car to handle properly.

Thanks. I ran the Neuman setup and the car was really loose but it is mainly the track is cold and dirty. Tommorow on race day will be alot different so I didn't change anything excpet I put my spool in instead of the one way.

geeunit, actually Tyco came up with the scale speed advertising to sell their toy R/C cars.

"Our 1/12th scale general lee goes 8mph, that's 96 mph in scale speed!"

In reality anybody will tell you 8mph will net you 8 miles in an hour, no matter how tiny the vehicle is.

The fullscale nascar body in a 10 mph air stream will net more downforce then an R/C car body would, since it has much more surface area........ , Jim

So what's the best carpet setup right now with foam tires? I was thinking about starting with BK's setup from earlier this year.

but 10 mile per hr wind wont move it like it would an rc body because of the weight to mass difference....like I said...time some laps with a body on an average track....then pull the body off and time some more, you can deny it all you want, but you know what the results would be......
