Before you make your final decision on a body, the Mugen "Whip Two" is coming. It's being developed right now with even more front steering.
Lower mount= more steering? Higher mount= less??

Corey , im guessing its a ride height thing, depending what you are set at.
this body has a pretty steep front end, similar to the blitz.
well, if its good enough for Burch, its good enough for me.

I dunno either. I just figured if the front of the body was lower using the low mount, more air would hit the front face of the body.

I get all hosed up on this technical stuff. I just wanna drive. You wanna set my car up

Maybe since Sohlman ain't gonna drive we could just hire him for some beer to set us up

Ron or Mike......

you guy's bringing some Whip Two's for us guys in the pits?? We'd all like to try them, but distributors may not have them in time if it's down to the crunch.

Thanks.

R 10; the rear dots that line up with the rear body posts in there forward position will set the front end 10mm from the front bumper. The front mounts wont line up with the dots because "they did not know" that the body mounts on the car are eccentric. Run the short front mounts in there forward position(there dots will be 3mm be hind the posts) and the short rear mounts outside hole with the wing down. Parmas lower cut line is perfect set up this way, even with the bottom of the chassis all the way around. If it drags use the 2mm spacers under the front and switch to the tall rear supports. Should not drag a the FT. with 5mm or higher front ride height.

Beer works for me! But your setup may suffer a bit...

Actually, it has to deal with moving the body forward or backward to get more or less front steering. Remember the front of the new bodies (Whip, R10, etc.) are sloping up. If the body is forward, you will need a taller body post...and vice-versa if the body is back. I keep about a 10mm gap between the front lip of the body and the plastic bumper and I have plenty of steering...with the Whip.

AKSHUN: Yes the first Whip had lighter lexan, but the performance was incredible (compared to the T530, Dome and the Kawahara on a R). I'll bet you will be happy with the Whip II...or what ever the name will be.

Thanks sohlman, im gonna buy a couple at the winternats and ill use them in the summer months when our season starts.
I might head out to the Toledo track and test both of the bodies on one of their club days, they have a pretty nice surface.
Corey, you up for another road trip after the winternats???

IS the Whips that much better than the T530 despite being much lighter and more "fragile"?

They provide more downforce and better handling, more agressive.

The thin rear did not turn out to be a problem for me. Yeah it got crinkled up but I have not had one fall apart. I'm running the 10 while waiting for the new Mugen body and it is good. I don't know how pro-line is pulling the 530 as it is the only wedge body I've run across that was not thin in the rear. Any of these new bodies is Superior to the Lola. Look at your lap times.

were talking about the new Parma R10 and the mugen "whip " bodies, they provide way more downforce , thus giving the car better control under more power.
try one of these bodies out and you will notice a huge difference right away.
