The front end kinda looks like the CTS and the rear looks like the Alfa that was popular a couple years ago... I'll have to have the body in my hands to get a good up close look... Will this body work??? Time will tell... It is nice to be able to have a few more choices in body styles though... One important question... Is this body ROAR legal? Yes... No... Not yet... Won't be??? I know it is for the electric TC...

It may not be officially in the approved list yet since it's new (I don't know ) but here's a quote from the description found on their website:

"Made to fit all 200mm nitro-sedan chassis, this body and its add-on wing fits within all the ROAR and IFMAR rules requirements. "

Where in the label that it says 190 & will fit 200mm?
I have one in my hand and it only says "Fits 200mm Touring Car" on the label.

Can you expand on your comment of it being good a low bite track? Are you referring to increased steering, rear grip, or overall balance? The biggest issue I've been fighting with my Kyosho V-One RRR is with rear grip. By the time I can get enough steering out of the car, the back end wants to break free. This has been happening with several of the Kyosho RRRs where I race. I'm curious if this body will help in this situation.

I saw the body on a electric car today at my local track and it seemed it had alot of steering. I looked at the body pretty close and it looks like a good carpet body for electric. But, maybe the dynamics of the body might be different for a nitro sedan car since it is labeled as a " DNA 3 " body. Im still gonna get one and try it out when my local hobbyshop gets them in stock.

Dale mentioned another 200mm body coming shortly after the DNA3. I'll be looking forward checking that out too.

Any hints or time line, Dale?

The body will give you more steering than the M as for the rear grip since it is designed for indoor carpet it gives you more grip overall since it has a high downforce. Majority of the time when I run a stratus & switch to the DNA it always had more steering & I would have to reduce my steering epa
semd me a pm with your set up it might just be the diff oil you are using
TEAM KAMIKAZE the label was for the 190 dna 1st version
