if that is actually a worse handling body and I made the mistake of buying it, I would cry...

Nope, the GT40 in conjuntion with a TC3 holds some very quick laps around one of our tracks...... Still not to say the GT40 is good, just not as much of a house brick as a speed6

nope - haven't tried smeltz. Was going to, but after he got a lot of attention when Richey stopped doing mods he shot his price through the roof. I see where now he has dropped them down to reasonable again. Smeltz copied richey and says he does some of his own stuff to them too now, but that's the way it is with these mods, builders will tell you Richey copied some boat engine builder with his mods so pretty much all of them build off each-other. I wouldn't be afraid to try him if I knew someone, or even knew someone who knew someone that ran his engines.

Don't forget the new Stratus 2.1. Feels really good, nice and neutral also, big rear wing with aerodynamic cutouts.

KAOZZ, the first thing you should do if you're going out to Revelation is ditch the rubbers. No one is using them if they race. They're the same price as a set of rubbers with all the inserts, etc. In fact if you're down there when I'm there, I could loan you some or even give you a few of my junk sets. The other thing is a one-way works well there, if you don't already have one. Right now, my basic setup for that track is 70(f)/60(r) wt Trinity shock oil with gold springs all around with 40 shore Fast tires or UFRA's (26mm front, 30mm rear). Caster set with one 1mm (thin) spacer in front. Stock shock pistons and positions, and with at least 7000-10000 weight oil in the rear diff. The negative diff works well, as well as a solid, if you can drive it. Minimal droop settings, with 4.5mm/5mm ride ht. With an MT-12 I was at 17/21, with an OS TR I was at 18/22 with the stock spurs. That may all change depending on your motor. Swaybar set to 3/4 in front with the stock black sway bar in the rear (at least until I get the new RR set). I should be there Sat. night this weekend, maybe racing sedan, possibly 1/8.

I have no idea what you are saying here.

Sparksy is right, the 300M is VERY popular due to its low roofline and very aero lines.

Sorry I can't tell much difference between bodies either and my lap times don't vary when I change bodies. I do find the S60 Volvo is pretty resistant to damage though.

DCR1TWO-

Very nice looking car! I have one question regarding the graphite upper deck on your car. As you may know, the Reflex comes with a very thin and pliable graphite upper deck. On your Reflex I can see you used an aftermarket graphite upper deck. Is the graphite upper deck on your Reflex the graphite upper deck from 3 Racing? If not, what manufacturer makes it? I was thinking about puchasing an aftermarket graphite upper deck but I was not quite sure if any would accomadate the low CG fuel tank that the Reflex comes with. Did you have to make any modifications to install the low CG fuel tank? Does the aftermarket graphite upper deck your using still keep the low CG fuel tank exactly in the center of the car?

Thank you for considering to answer all these questions!

i agree with rjl, i find that most of the body shells perform about the same on paper. One of the body shells i didn't really like, is also the one that holds my quickest laps arounds our local track. I 've tried 300m, stratus, stratus2.0, accord, vectra, tvr, skyline. I thought they were all completely different, but none of them seampt to give me an advantage on the transponder!
