Wink solution to boring stratus bodys

I build bodys for 1/12 - 1/10 - and 1/8 cars and I would very much like your input on what you would change on the stratus bodys for 1/10 cars IE bigger spoillers more swoop in the front ect.. I built a wind tunnel and they test very well but come on a dodge 4 door race car? You can only do so much with paint! Let me know what you think and if I use your idea I will make you a body! [email protected] PS.. I'm not hear to sell just get some ideas

Are you asking "how to make a better looking Stratus", "how to make a better performing stratus" or "What car should I make instead of a Stratus"? Sorry but I'm a bit confused.


Your setup sounds sick... windtunnel testing and your own lexan vacuum forming-thingee.

That 4-door Dodge is considered to be one of the best handling sedan bodies out there.

There are bodies out there that look swoopy and fast and cool( Lamborghini, saleen S7, Corvette, etc..)BUT they don't handle half as well as that "Dodge 4-door". Having said this, I think it would be hard to make a body you describe to handle as good as that "Dodge 4-door" but it would be great if you did.

If your talking about making something thats not readily available... I say give us some Trans Am bodies... like the Jaguar XKR or Panoz, or Vette.

But only if it'll work.

.. and then what are you going to do with them Chuck?


I'd say, come up with a race legal body.

...and a Passat Wagon
