Alternatively, when you have a lot of tight low speed corners nothing seems to match the Nazda2 corner rotation. In fact we had 6 of 10 A-main drivers in 17.5 TC at Mile High Champs --- not to mention it won the 2016 ROAR Carpet National Championship in 17.5 and 13.5 TC the month prior.
Don't forget it also won 17.5 and 13.5 at MHIC let alone had that many drivers using the body in the 17 A main.

The Mon-Tech IS-200 body is now ROAR approved -- 016-004 (IFMAR 1647). This is the 5th body approved now by ROAR in 2016

we've been seeing a lot of different questions about the best mounting location for the ROAR certified 1/10th EP TC racing bodies. here is our best summary---

Mounting Neutral/Centered on wheel wells in front end:
- Nazda3
- Silvy
- Nazda4

Mounting Extremely Forward -- On Amtx or XRay cars - adjust the rear body post first so that it nearly goes through the rear wing upright:
- Nazda2
- IS-200

I see many people say that the IS200 and Nazda 2 are the bodies to have. What is the direct comparison between the two in terms of handling? What is the reason that the Nazda appears to be more preferred for stock racing and the IS200 more preferred for mod?

The Nazda 2 has less initial steering, and more mid corner steering. The IS200 has more initial steering, and is more stable mid corner. The IS200 also has more downforce so is better at high speed.

N2 is liked for stock for its cornerspeed. IS for mod for downforce and stability. Many peopl like the IS for stock as well, it comes down to driver/setup preferences

One last statement to add to Gee's-- unless you have euro-style sweeping corners, the is200 is likely better on asphalt in all motor classes.
