Has anyone tried the Opel Astra body by protoform or serpent?

I want to put that body on my new S710. I was thinking about the volvo, but I didnt like it much after i finished it.

When we're talking bodies I have to ask, I've "just" picked up a Protoform Vauxhall Astra BTCC becuase i loved it's lines (I don't really care about performence yet since I'm "new"). But I think I have to ask, does it suck seen from performance point of view or is it OK? I attach a pic, I know, the wing is far to high but I'm going to fix it soon.

P.S It's my first paintjob ever

Fisher, I've tried the VDS Lola as well as the Loletta.

I don't hink much of the VDS when compared to the Kawahara or Kyosho equivalents. Its material seems thinner somewhat. I also feel the performance are not as good as the others.

On the other hand I loooove their Loletta. It just seems more stable for the longer and faster tracks and gives extra steering. The downside is that it is heavier than any VDS (maybe because you have at least 10 nut and bolts on it!) and the side stabilizers easily rip-off if you have a bad rollover.
