this audi body perform awsome on my MTX-4R!, on last local race I tested the audi body but the race director have some issues about it because it does not have the efra number but on driver meeting he agreed to let race with that ody and the results was better lap times! great steering like a altis 2.3 and stable at high speed on the straight like the stratus 3.1 great over all body! I am waiting to test the new peotoform!

I'm doing back to back testing with the Exceed audi and Protoform R5-N body

The exceed felt like the stratus to me with a little bit more steering... I've seen some other mugens at the local track and the Protoform seems to have the most steering in the infield....

What you guys have to do, is when Francis isn't looking, check his pit bags for that new "It feels like a whole new car to me" pump spay he's been talking about in the MTX-5 thread. I need to know if he sprays it on the car or himself.


You know I'm just joking bro. Good luck with the testing this weekend. I'm really interested in what you're doing different with the setup.

I will let you know how all the different bodies feel in high speed and technical sections of the track..... I tried the audi body last week in medium/high bite track and hopefully it just gets even better when the bite comes up.....

For now the audi body work fine with the same setting of the car, my lap times are normaly from 23.5 to 24.5 , last race i test the audi with the same setting and my times were 23 constant and 6 laps of 22.4 to 22.7 that was a big diffrence, considering that the A main racer's on our local track have lap times of 22.0 constant and a few times of 21.9,I race 4 times on the A main last year here ,and with the audi upgrade I think I'll be making the A more times! and I have on agenda the protoform R5 test drive!

Yep, I have been running the ones from Graupner for the last 4 month and they are awesome.

I think the ones that are on the market right now are all the same (Intellect)

40 gr. weight advantage, no regulator, a very flat discharge curve, no self discharge, great capacity.

Love 'em
