235mm pan cars are making a bit of a comeback in the U.S.
Any chance you will be bringing in the 235mm proto bodies?

The one I'm thinking of is the MF-10 but it might actually be a 200mm body just like the M10. Either way, they are sweet!

Has anyone tried the Silvy, Evo and STratos bodies, and if so, how did they compare to whats already out there, like the Nazda 2, PF Speed 6 LTC-R etc?

+ many Nazda2, Nazda3 and Silvy bodies plus F1 front and rear wings being run at the event.

Best wishes to everyone in their mains tomorrow...

Ran three other bodies yesterday at Middle River

Nazda4 - has much more turn in than Nazda2, but feels closest to a HPI Subaru or Sweep body because of the aggressive turn-in. Body is very free center out. It doesn't have the same high level of grip that the Silvy does though. As compared to a Nazda2, our cars were 0.2-0.3s slower with this aggressive body.

Stratos - the body has a very low profile. It has minimal turn-in as compared to Nazda2 but was much freer center out. Body also appeared to want to traction roll in high speed sweepers more than any other. As compared to a Nazda2, our cars were 0.1s slower.

Evo - the styling of this body makes it look as it could be good for USGT. When raced in that class, the body was just as fast as the Protoform ATS, but had a slightly different characteristic -- more rear grip.
