I've ran that one, it's a little looser than the stratus, but still fairly stable. I like the proto alfa better though, it handles pretty much the same as the proto stratus. Never tried the parma M yet. Might have to give it a shot.

I'm kind of used to how the protoform Stratus handles so I'm afraid to change it up. If there is anything with the same/similar performance that has a different shape I'm open for that. I just don't want to change it too much.

LOL Parma type-M , its like the stronger brother of the stratus. If you look at both bodies they both have this new type of channel of the hood and spikey a pillars up the windsheild. Plus aggressive downforce rears.

Just parma-m is better. Thats how it felt to me like a more aggressive drive but just as easy.

Also forgot to note an important fact.

The parma m , east coast euro accord type-r and stratus 3.1 are of course roar legal. Be sure to check the roar body approval list.

http://www.roarracing.com/approvals/sbody.php

To make sure the body you want to use is approved for roar racing , that is if you plan on racing some roar events.

Here is the .12 Nitro Body list from roar.

1/10 .12 FUEL TOURING BLITZ 60010005 2-20-2010
1/10 .12 FUEL TOURING BLITZ 60106 2-20-2010
1/10 .12 FUEL TOURING EAST COAST BODIES TUNE 16283212 2-20-2010
1/10 .12 FUEL TOURING HPI 7484 4-1-2007
1/10 .12 FUEL TOURING LOSI LOSA8080 5-24-2009
1/10 .12 FUEL TOURING PARMA 10087 8-5-2007
1/10 .12 FUEL TOURING PARMA 10219 1-10-2009
1/10 .12 FUEL TOURING PROTOFORM 1466 3-15-2007
1/10 .12 FUEL TOURING PROTOFORM 1468 3-15-2007
1/10 .12 FUEL TOURING PROTOFORM 1474 12-22-2009
1/10 .12 FUEL TOURING PROTOFORM 1475 8-5-2007
1/10 .12 FUEL TOURING PROTOFORM 1477 6-30-2008

The #'s are the part #'s for the part so you should be able to search for example on the bottom , protoform 1477 and find that body for sale through someone by searching it on google etc.

Ok. So my East Coast Bodies Accord Euro-R body showed up. Fast shipping. Anyhow after inspecting the euro-r body. It gets my high approvals.

It reminds me of the Parma-M. Except its actually kinda better. It has 3 wings included with the body. These wings are the stiffest/thickest wings ive seen. There near plastic levels of hardness. It has the nascar rear wing on the body itself with a twist under the wing the body dips down , probably allowing more air or some sort of effect.

The body itself also has the same type of channeling front for the hood and windshield.

Id say these bodies are in a whole new class when it comes to aerodynamic performance and I really like where they are going with things. They should outperform almost everything on the market.

Im pretty excited to try the EC Accord R , im taking a strong guess that its going to outperform the parma-m. With the tuning wing option making it well worth buy.

How has the East Coast Bodies EuroR worked out? Any more input? I'm looking for a body that has a little more down force than the Status 3.1 for my local parking lot track. I like idea of having multiple wings for tuning.

can u elaborate a bit more !!!
i actually liked the stability of the Accord R but still prefer the Blitz Mazda 3 with the Biltz TC 2.0 the next fav.The Blitz Mazda 6 is more suited for fast flowing tracks in my opinion and seems to have a happyback end compared to the bodies mentioned.

Shadow or parma r10. The shadow gives more of every thing without losing stablity at low and high speed's. The shadow is my choice from what ive used not for all tracks but workes very well. It looks wicked to but it shore works well i got more steering and with about the same rear as the parma. One thing i will say don't expect to just drop the body on any ware and hope it works. A friend of mine has done alot of work mounting bodies in 1 to 2mm dirfrences forward and backwards from 0 to 25mm in postion. Its the key to getting what you want or what you have been looking for. All body's will work just some give much difrent efects and current set up may need to be ultered. I went stright from the parma r10 to the shadow with a slight mounting difrence and i got what the parma had and more had to stiffen the car slightly at the front and the rear had a tinny bit more flap. That could of been the track condishions. Regards Jeremy.
