Default Who still makes Regular Weight 1/8 IC Bodies ????

So, used to run PF up until the R15 - all regular weight, then switched to Bittydesign, and now that they no longer offer 1:8 IC Bodies am searching for who besides Delta makes regular weight bodies.

I do not like the current crop of Pro-Lite, Ultralight etc. etc. Flimsy bodies. They are just a waste of money to me, their reduction of weight was never seen by me on my lap times or the way the car handled.

Anyone have any feedback on Blitz, Brilliant and Matrix perhaps????

The Extreme bodies Flat, anyone have any experience, as their site does not discuss their characteristics.

According to my LHS, the R18 flat will give a more sensitive front end compared to the normal R18.

agree, but the front is so weak...you touch anything with the front and the body is bent.
