I don't know about the Audi but I ran it this weekend. Before I had the Blitz Altis body. I can say that this body is more stable but the stability comes at the cost of some steering. However, I was able to adjust for that. Basically, it worked well. I would recommend it.

Once I can get my hands on one of those Audi bodies. Thats if they ever get stateside, I may be able to give a better comparison.

I got a chance to watch two Mugen MTX4R run the Protoform R5n body... It is pretty obvious this body has a lot more steering than the Stratus.... I can't wait to pick one up after seeing the difference....

Sorry for being a bit slow in getting this information out. The Protoform R5-N has been EFRA approved. We received the the designated approval number just after new years and it was immediately engraved into the windshield - the same day.

In spite of the cool weather at this time of year, a few "name" racers have found it to be very quick in testing.

Hi Dale, would the handling be affected in a neg way if I cut the whole rear window vs the recomended cut lines? I wanted to do this for pitting convenience.

Francis M:

The (suggested) cutout lines that are in the side and rear window are merely "suggested ideas" based purely on theory.

"Nothing ventured - nothing gained".

By the middle of this summer I think I'll be able to draw an accurate conclusion as to how these ideas really work.

I've been told by some really good racers that it had more steering than the Pf Stratus 3.1

Dale/ROAR official, can you please clarify if the R5-N body without the EFRA number is legal for ROAR events and the IFMAR worlds this year. Thx.
