I have the CTS body. For me it provides way more downforce than the Mazda...lots of push in corners though. I prefer the CTS overall for my driving skills...which isn't alot btw

more downforce or drag ? If you compare the front section, mazda6 is more aerodynamic than cadillac sts.





Btw, this is Nemesis body, the most preferables ?

Default How to insert pictures.

First you will need the url (address) address of the picture. You are only linking to the picture...not adding it to your message. To get a pictures url, right click on it and choose "properties." At the bottom of the properties will be the full address of the picture with .jpg or .gif after it. Highlight the whole address by pressing down the right mouse button and dragging across it. To copy it hold down the "ctrl" button and press "C." Now you need to get it the link into your note. This forum has provided an easy way to do that. Above the text box you are typing in is a dialog box with "IMG" in it (stands for image.) click on that box and a window will open for you to type the url in. Click your cursor in the window. Now hold down the "ctrl" button again but this time press "V." Ctrl-C is copy. Ctrl-V is paste. The address will be pasted on the line. Click OK and it will be transferred to your message. Hope that was clear enough.

PS. If you have an Apple you will use the apple key instead of the control key.

Chill- Do you actually run that body, or is it one that got painted and ran once and put away because it didn't perform. How would you compare it to your others? I have been thinking about getting one just because they look bad ass IMO. But if it's a tank let me know, lol.

Brandon - I have not ran it yet. Not sure if I want to.... lol ...I was thinking about buying another one and spray it one color and run it. The body does look good thats why I had to get one. Now all I need is the wheels with the spinners on it. *BLING BLING* lol

I painted my CTS-V body up Monday, I guess I'll find out how it does this weekend. Actually, I don't really care how it does, it just looks bad ass
