I have now seen all three LOTR movies and although very nicely made.... It's just not Star Wars!

But then again Darth Vader and the Ring together

What do you mean it's just not Star Wars?

Personnally, I buy from towerhobbies, cheaper for me even with shipping... I just ordered an MG and the Mazda 6... Just to be different, I may run the MG... They say it is between the protoform alfa 1 and the stratus 2.1. But I dont know. I will play with it and see.

My take on the Alfa 2.1 was exactly like you state here, but that was only until I cut the wing to make it legal. In my opinion with ROAR legal cut wing, the rear is too unsettled. I prefer the Mazda.

I remember having used this body in 1997... lol...

I think this body is a little on the older side... kinda outdated.... The bodies that are designed nowadays are much better in performance, like the Alfa 2.1, Stratus 2.1 and Mazda 6

On what points ROAR takes their decision to accept a body or not? I am just tired of seeing the same 3 bodies all the time (Taurus, Alfa, Mazda 6). I know that there is other, but most the other companies have really cheap look.

Please don't flame on look doesn't matter...I know. But at least it would be more fun at a race to see like 20 differents bodies intead of 3. I am pretty sure a body like the NSX, saleen S7 and other would have pretty good aerodynamics too.
