Anders,

It's a good excuse to come with them, to paint them here.

Why would the Speed 12 be "way tougher" than the Speed 8?

Well...it just is. If you hold both in your hands at the same time you will see what i mean. Maybe they use diffrent polycarbonate. Maybe the Speed 8 gets pulled more and thus thins out more. The Speed 12 just seems to survive longer than the .020 Speed 8's.

I am not knocking the Speed 8. It is a great body. I have a couple. It just tears up fast if you crash.

Can't wait to get my hands on one of these. Looks like just the body we've been looking for.. more style and less downforce. Sweet!
