Default Hpi Bmw M3 Gt

Has anyone had any success running this body..?

I`m after a new body for my TC3..& would like something different.

I think it looks awesome..

BUT if it doesn`t benefit in the handling of the car , i`ll just stick with the run of the mill Mazda 6`s & Dodge Stratus 3.0.

Cheers

I have run it before. Worked well for me, I would say it is a neutral body.

Thanks for the replies so far..

I currently are using an " Alfa Romao" that came with the car.

So how does the M3 compare to the Alfa..?

Cheers

The car felt really loose with the Bimmer body on it. This was last summer with my Yok sd though. I switched to a mazda 6 and the car was planted beyond belief. I really like the look of the M3 body though. If you run it on a high bite surface, it might actually free up the car enough to make it handle better, but I never got to try it on high bite.

Good luck, and it's worth a try. I have another one painted to match my real car. I might actually try it out with my FK '05. Hmmm, I forgot about it until I started to read this thread. I'll post what I found out after this weekend.

I currently run Parma Alfa's on carpet.

Attached is a pick of the full sized version.
