ok, so you mean that those that i mentioned are only illegal to use in race, but they are ok to use? coz my frenz told me that only those ROAR approved are good, due to their aerodynamic, and those that i mentioned are difficult to drive, or it wouldnt be that fast. hmm, since we are only just racing for fun over the weekends, it sdn't be a problem.

I just picked up two Kawahara Lexus Is250 bodies and they are really sweet!
I am going to test it this weekend at the Midwest Series. Standard Kawahara quality and really smooth looking. I will post pics soon

I talked to Mugen about those bodies about 3 months ago. They look sweet and the holes are maked for a perfect fit. You might notice the car has a slight understeer though, so keep that in mind going into the weekend with it and make the adjustments you need.

Don't know, don't run illegal bodies, why bother? This hobby already costs enough

guys, my buddy gave me a used subaru WRX, so i tested it out. and found that it then to drift into corners, unlike that stratus that i used. so now, i m convinced that we just can't simply use the shell that we like.

Yes it can be that bad. I think a big problem is if you run a stock or no wing. Then the rear end becomes slippery at speed and you can essentially drift.

Its amazing how flimsy lexan can actually hold true aerodynamic properties at such a small size.

Yes, it is... airflow on an rc car at 45mph is 450mph in scale, now you see why it makes such a difference. even as slow as 10mph, that is 100mph to you r/c.

as for the best handling car, I would say the Parma M body or the Protoform Stratus.
