Tried the PARMA/PSE Type M today and didn't like it very much. Compared to the Mazda 6, it made the rear end way too loose for my setup and driving style. If I want this much steering, I'll setup the car to have this much steering. It also doesn't seem as durable as the Protoform. I'm going back to the Mazda 6.

Maybe it's just me.

ah, finally get to see your finished work of art,nice job!
shame it'll only be a display case body, it'd have been easy to pick up while
racing it with the bright colour scheme

Hey Guys,

I had chance to finally run some gas this weekend at 301 Raceway in MD. The M body handled great out there. Had a lot of steering and the rear end was planted. I also did move the wing back about 2mm. The car was very aggressive overall. Hope this info helps.

Guys,

Tried out the body at the refion 4 champs in ft.myers and the body had good amount of steering felt comparable to the stratus.....like the way it looks going around the track....even though the track conditions were not great due to the surface temps being so high...

Hi Guys,

Just willing to share our experience with the M-Type body.
We test the body yesterday at the Region 4 Champ. DJ Apolaro TQ the event using it. The car has a lot more steering but still plenty of traction. Basically high speed steering has improved a lot and the rear end feels really stable.
We are very pleased with the performance and the handling of this body. A must have

Here a pic of DJ car. Enjoy

Paolo

Hi Paolo,

Did he move the rear wing back at all to stabilize the rear?

Thanks

I set the wing back only 1mm. The body worked really well. I felt the body to give the same stability as the status 3.1 with more steering at high speeds.

Here are some more photos, I loved this body. The lights looked weird on the paper, but look cool on the car.
