What about in the case of the new VW beetle?

and since he got it RTR, he couldnt have drilled the holes rong since it should of been pre drilled. so it cant be on backwards for him.

But at least i know now why my car is stuck in reverse...

if the wing came off the body that alone would cause the handling to be erratic

if you dont think the wing is important for handling you are mistaken

at scale speeds of 500+mph a wing makes a huge difference

ive lost the wing during racing and it totally screws the cars balance up

for the record i will only use pro-line/protoform bodies all others i have tried are nowhere near as durable and they handle good

yes hpi makes some really cool looking bodies but i dont think that they handle as well as protoform and when i am flying around the track you cant tell my stratus body isnt as detailed as hpis

with the body off the car is fine right? with the body on without the wing you add downforce to the front and possibly even take some away from the rear from the air under the body pushing up with no downforce from the wing to push it back down
