What is the rational behind ULT being most optimal for 17.5 stock class? I understand that lighter bodyshell will always result lower CG, but I would think modified car with higher speeds would benefit lower CG even more to avoid traction rolling. Total weight is anyway dictaded by minimum weight limit which modern cars with proper electronics can anyway achieve even with regular weight bodies.

Modified is slower speed in the corners. A stock car gets it's low lap times from good cornering, mod is usually a lot of point and shoot, then stand on the brake, turn and point again

Minimum weight for bodies will be good only to stop companies that don't have an ULT program from going under....I guess PF is feeling the heat...lol....
The ULT bodies can still make weight by adding goop on the lowest parts of the body...

I think of it like this ;
In mod your always looking for more grip without traction rolling (on carpet ) so softer setups more camber and more aggressive bodies ...
In spec (from 21.5 to can am tc) your basiclally trying to get rid of traction in the middle of the corner and a lighter weight body makes less grip mid corner by not making the body roll the car ... It allows the setup to be the grestest influence on grip .
Where as mod we tipically need slightly more roll innthe setup to give more corner speed when trying to point and shoot at the same time .
This is my thinking anyways

You Mean Ultralite is surely unfit, right?

I guess they will also not allow thicker paint jobs on the lower parts of the body then.... Nothing they can do about that, and these rules are unnecessary....

ULT bodies work very well in all classes of TC the lightweight is heavier and will meet the ETS rule,until there is a rule in the USA I’m sticking with the M410 ULT for 17.5 and the JP8 lightweight in mod,seems the best combination for me. ����
