I have not cut front arms or anything like that but I love the short wheelbase

Doctor , I see that you like the srs body. I like the rear stability of the p56 , but I'm faster with the p37. What are you other guys using?

I also use the P37 primarily. I do bring along the srs and the P56 bodies just in case. The SRS for smaller tighter tracks especially if my car is pushing with the 37 and use the p56 if the traction is way high and or there is too much steering.

That's weird , I can't seem to get my car to push. On or off power. Always suffered from a loose rear end, but I like it a little loose. Srs is my last choice.

no one around here uses p56 body... I never liked that body. I have both p37 and SRS-N. All depends on setup and track layout, although lots of people are comfortable with p37 so they continue to run it.

Hi guys,
Using the srs body the last 6 months is giving me way to stable rear and lots of steering in low to medium tracks but it makes the car difficult to rotate in tight corners or chicanes.
I do not agree that P56 is only for high grip tracks ...the p37 is the way to go in high grip conditions..

Thanks
