Awesome body!!!!!

So stable and you have all around more grip. The Car is easy to drive and you have a higher cornerspeed.

order from team kamikazi. http://www.kamikazercracing.com/prod...prod=SER170111

LOOK again it says 39 Euro not US dollars, it is equivalent to US$53.09.

Does anyone know what's the best position for this body on the Mugen MTX4? Like distance between the center body post and the windshield? Or should I just mount it so it lines up with the front wheel wells.

Thanks in advance.

Quiet,
I saw a few friends running the body on the MTX4 this past weekend, they mounted the front tires centered in the front wheel well of the body. And they said it was very good . Hope that helps ya.

I finally decided to throw away my Stratus 3.1 and the Altis 2.3 after switching back and forth with the East Civic, the Civic is by far the most stable and had the most high speed steering than the other 2 bodies, once again Serpent and Central did their job in producing a great sedan body.

Questions??

The Civic dominates the Super Regionals @ Homestead taking TQ and 1-2-3 in the podium. Most of the cars (different brands too) in the finals where running this body.
Congrats all for the performance

This body is awesome. If you like a stabe car with steering than this is the one. Thanks to central for coming out with such a touring body. Thanks to roar for making it legal. This body is for real.

Default My day at the track with the Civic.

Just got the body from Billy Bowerman last saturday. I finally painted it and took it to my local hobbyshop's track:



As you can see, this would be a perfect testing ground for any nitro sedan car. Fastest lap time was done by Jelich posting a 14.3 second lap with his electic brushless modified sedan. My fastest lap time was posted 2 weeks ago with a time of 14.1 with an average of 14.8 seconds during a five minute session with my nitro sedan using the status 3.1. Next week, I will post some times using the same procedures I did today. I believe I can hit a high 13 second lap with the civic body depending on track conditions !! Unfortunately, the timing wasn't set-up today because they are having a off-road race tommorrow. We usually practice and test on wednesday's and friday's. Today, I tested bodies and did afew comparisons with 3 other bodies ( 3.1 status, Parma M, and the kawahara IS250 ). Here are afew shots of the civic before testing:





After setting up the car for track conditions, I used the status 3.1 as a baseline just because i've used it so much at different tracks and conditions. Once I found a good set-up, I started to push the car to its limits using only one tank of fuel for each body without changing any set-up. This is what I came up with the following three bodies (3.1, IS250, Parma M):

Stratus 3.1 : Least amount of steering and most rear end stability
Kawahara IS250 : Most amount of steering with least rear end stability
Parma M : Medium amount of steering with Medium rear end stability


Then came the central civic . First thing I noticed was the stability going through chicanes, straightaway, initial entry / mid corner / and exit out of corners. I hung out with Josh Cyrul yesterday and he was very interested on how the body handles as well, " The windshield looks pretty narly !! " he mentioned. The body was very stable throughout the whole powerband. The rear end never broke loose and the body steered effortlessly with stability. Corner speed felt alot more higher under load with control. So, to my conclusion:

Central Civic: Most amount of steering with most rear end stability !!

I wish serpent had found this body alot earlier . Thankyou serpent.

So far anybody that have tried this Civic body more likely get's stuck with it.
