We haven't tried them yet. But from what Rich and Scott says "They are the best thing since sliced bread" End of Quote!

Looks a bit like the CFX body. Is it pretty close to that?

Rich or Scott,

What handling characteristics should we expect from this body. Last season most used the Protoform T530, which worked well in most situations. Are there any clear differences? Thanks.

Jamie,

The Dome body will give you more steering than the Protoform Lola.

Ace has them in stock - give them a call. Remember, this body will work under most conditions - there are times the Lola will be better. Test at your track with your conditions.

The Dome body is awesome, plenty of steering & rear grip.

However I donít understand how its legal as the ones I have are wider than 267mm. (see body letter file)

Have Kyosho released a new narrower version as they are now approved by EFRA? (see body list file)

Nothing like the first or second CEFX body.


Hey Rich, how is the weight and mold strength on these bodies? The original PF is a brick and the .030 is still not the lightest thing in the world even with a light coat of paint.
