Looks really cool! It looks like Parma drew inspiration from the Mazda 6 and the Ride/Rayspeed Accord (the long, low rear deck-lid with a lip at the end of it)

Rich, do you still have these in stock? If so, I might want to add one to my order.

Joe:

Make sure you call or email him as well. I think he sold all of them at the race, but he might have one more.

Scott,

Since your initial report, what type of setup changes have you made to the car to get the car handling the way you like it? Have you moved the rear wing back as you indicated above or do you still have it in the default position?

Mine may get here just in time for racing this Sunday. Because I don't have a lot of time before qualifying starts, I wanted to get some idea of what type of changes I may have to make once I hit the track. I'm currently using the Mazda 6 body on a V1RRR WCE.

Thanks,
Rainer

I moved the wing back just a little. For the most part, the track just came to me. IF your car gets a little bit loose, do what you would do to tighten the rear end up. You could add a touch of rear toe, go harder tires on the front, or softer on the rear, lighter rear diff oil etc. I personally don't love the mazda a whole lot. My guess is that you will find your car much more responsived with the Type M compared to the Proto Mazda. The Stratus 3.1 is a closer match to the Parma body.

Obviously I don't drive a K-car, but those things should still have a similar effect on your car. There is a good group of support on the Kyosho thread if you have issues. Good luck

Scott,

Thanks! All those pieces of info will come in very handy on race day. I've got about an hour before the two qualifiers to find the sweet spot for the body - in addition to tuning from an OS P3 plug to a P7, switching to a Skyline V12Plus pipe, trying some 40/42 tires in the rear (currently running 37s all the way around) and getting in some decent open practice on whatever track layout we have for this week. Haven't used the Stratus. No one in the K thread or my local track has had the opportunity to try the new body yet, so it's going to be interesting. I've got a strategy for trying all the changes, it's just that the time factor is working against me.

I am looking for more steering and responsiveness - and that's what appealed to me from all of the reviews that were posted, but I don't need the rear end coming around on me. At the moment, the car is pretty much planted, but I'm not as tight on the track as I want to be. I'm hoping the body is going to get me there with a few other minor adjustments.

I'll let you know how it goes.

I'd like to put in a good word for this body. Ran it on my MTX4 last weekend on a well prepared (VP Fuels traction compound) track. The car felt very balanced with both 37 rear/40 front and 40/42 shore tire combinations, looks like Parma did their homework on this body!

I took Scott's suggestion and mounted the rear wing back a few mm's. I did notice that the top of rear spoiler was slightly lower than the roof by 2-3 mm's. Could have been the way it was mounted (body did appear level) but I would cut this out several mm's above the trim line and make adjustments from there. This may improve rear traction for those that are loose.

Nice job Parma.

I justed picked up one of these bodies because I saw Thello Jurdon and Mike Huse using them at my track. Thello's car was hooked up when he adjusted the rear wing as Scott had mentioned.
