Default ride bodies

Where is a good place to get the RIDE MKIII stratus body? Which protoform body is it comparable to? The stratus 3.0 A or C or the nemesis or the mazda 6 style? Thanks for the help.........

Ride MKIII bodies will be in stock next Thursday/Friday. The MKIII has more down force all around than Stratus 3.0A or C. Most of the protoform bodies does not share similarity in handling characteristics with the MKIII.

Are the Ride bodies ROAR legal? I've been running the Ride Accord, but am planning on running at the ROAR Nationals in Florida.

From the looks of it, it seems that none of the Ride bodies are legal. Too bad I just got a Ride Accord. Or did I miss the listing?

Just got mine last week...hopefully I can get it painted in the next couple of weeks to try out... front lower lip similar to the M6.
the rear spoiler supports has been slightly beefed up. I was told has more downforce than the first version....

Accord Type A (first version) maybe used for carpet
Accord Type B for outdoor asphalt

Default Ride Accord

I found that the Ride Accord is a great body all around except it lacks a bit of rear downforce. It works great on high bite asphalt and the car feels sharp and fluid. In low traction conditions i use a Losi Alfa rear wing and find that it increases rear downforce. It makes it feel similar to a mazda 6 and not as planted as The Protoform stratus 3 AP.

It would make a great carpet body but im sure you'd have to dial out a bit of steering.

The new wider Type-R wing from FLAP helps with rear grip as well.

We should have the new Type B TSX in by this Friday
