I had heard of the new Protoform, but do not have access to one, so I did not include it in my test. Be sure I will though!

Out of all four that I tested the Chevy gave the fastest laps. this test was on an unsealed high bite track. The ISF was second closest then the Altis and the RS4 was last. This is as far as lap times. The Chevy rolled in the rear the most and all three other were pretty flat. The ISF felt and looked the best, but again the time were not the fastest. I think a lot has to do with how the body is mounted and racers are going to have to just play around with this.

I hope to get a Protoform and test it soon enough.

I will be there!

Kenny Ives and I are working on something that should be really cool. Hopefully it will work out. I will be promoting also the new ContactRC tire line as well. I come in on the middle of the day on Friday.

See you there,

DJ Apolaro

Try using some masking tape to remove the residue. That's what I typically use..

Dj broke the track record this past weekend @ Ft Myers. So far the Chevy is the best one. We will be in Ft Myers again in 2 weeks and we will try the Protoform. I guess that will be a fair test. So far, in small tracks, the Chevy is the best. If you are attending the WC in Houston, you need a Chevy!!

I sent it in to Serpent. It should be on the set-up section of the Serpent.com site sometime tomorrow.

You are right, I will in the future keep all the kidding and jokes at the track. We all know each other here in Florida but not everyone on this forum knows this so it does come off a little harsh at times. Sorry DJ
