Questions?? GT! 200mm bodies

I'm wondering if anyone has used these type of bodies?
Also i'm not sure weather they need a hole cut into the front windscreen for
cooling, or with the top of the motor exposed weather it recieves enough cooling?
I stil need to cut a hole in the roof above the tank filler, so will this give extra cooling instead?

If anyone has used these bodies, how did they handle compared to a tourer and also compared to a lola style body?
Cheers

Here is a pic of a Porsche 911 GT1 body that i hae which i cut a hole into the front windscreen.
The other body i have (which is the same as the white one)i haven't cut the holes yet, and i haven't used them yet!
Hence the questions!!

All feedback wellcome.

I guess there's one way to find out! Leave the other windshield intact and switch back and forth to see the temp difference. It looks to me as if it is worth a shot! You have a fair amount of cooling head exposed.
Car looks great by the way! Looks like a race car, rather than a 'grocery getter'.

Good suggestions here above. I would add one thing. You need to run a roll bar or your going tear your heat sink head off.

That looks like an MTX4 chassis from what I can see of it. Cool looking body...wonder how much down force it gives....

Well, at least the stickers suggest you're right and it's a MTX4R
Looks cool, but I'm also curious if it actually works.

I didn't even see those... Shows how much I was looking at the car body, just looking to see what was under it

It's a MTX4 spec'd up R!
Body is made by Frewer bodies!
Love the look of the body, but don't know how they handle yet.

That was an old photo without the steel Kawahara roll bar fitted at the time, but it's there now!
Don't want to have any unnessesary engine damage in a roll over!

Yes it is, sharp eyes! (exept for the tell tale MTX4R sticker you didn't see!)
I guess that it wouldn't have quite as much rear downforce as a lola body, but with the new track we are building not having a flat out sweeper at the end of the straight, i'm hoping that this body will performe close to the lola.
