Hehe oddly enough, I recently sent two Stratus 3.0 to paint for some asphault races coming up. Hmm I wonder why

I know it's boaring, but the Stratus 2.0 is just plain consistant outdoors, and works well indoors too.

Umm you like them because of the 2 "BIG" nubbs on the hood ...j/k..

So you like this body Rod..??? I think that it has it's trade off's.... but you run Mod most of the time ?? so it's more suited for you I would think

I like it because it handles pretty well, atleast for me. The one that I have been testing with does not have the shock tower nubs on the hood. The ones that are getting painted do ...hrmmm.

One of the reasons why I like the protoform stratus 2.0/3.0 bodies is because they can take a BEATING.

I don't like that body. It would be good on carpet, but it has no rear traction for asphalt.

I know Billy Easton used it and I'm pretty sure Matt Francis used it too, as well as others. Masami used the Tamiya Suburu Legacy body.
