did you change the body or where you mount the body

Any time you let air out of the front underbody you increase front downforce.

are you supposed to cut out the big flares behind the motor and air box? the cut outs in the front of the body release air from under the body giving more frontal downforce and thus more steering.

Have gotten the Shadow V2. Nice to see that there is some clearance for the pipe as well as the tunnel cut out. Am I suppose to cut it out completely or leave it as a flap that goes to the inside? Thanks!

I call it the V2... is the one with minor revision on it. There is a bit of a bubble to clear the pipe and marking in front for cut out.

dont knock a body you have never tryed yourself. i love the central buttody i got to try the frizzbee and i am sending three to the painter. it has a little less over all down force than the central so it is faster down the straight but is has a much if not more steering as the central when you cut out the front vents. it has a very light feeling. if you leave the vents closed it still has a lot of steering and good balance. this is not to knock the central because he body i still have thickand thins in my collection. and with this experiance i will take both if super high bite will use the frizz everytime in low bite will use central all the time i med condition just depends on the size and lenth of the track.

thanks, Ryan

I'm curious as well since I'm picking up two of them today

I'd like to see how they work at Toledo this weekend.
