As far as setup goes, I've been told to start with the RRR box setup because it's pretty close to where it should be, but I use a completely different setup for another track, so I couldn't be bothered reverting each week.
Only 1 more race with MY setup, and then it's either back to box setup, or if another racer can find me a setup I'm looking for, then it's going to that
All I really need is wheels and new rear driveline parts (it has mega-slop!!)
I'll probably get the P37, since it's slightly newer than the P56, and I'll more than likely only use it for a week if it doesn't get destroyed!
I can tell you running all the current bodies on the RRR Evo 2 I like the old Stratus 3.1 and the P37 the best for my driving style. I couldn't drive my car as fast lap time wise w/ the Kruzer as I could with the P56 and I was faster laptime wise w/ the Stratus 3.1 than the P56 but for some reason I used less gas w/ the P56 than the Stratus (go figure). The P37 was great all around and I ran back to back to back Stratus, P37, and P56 and I found Stratus is a more stable body than the others, P56 has more steering than the Stratus and the P37 has more everything. You really are going to have to try them all and the Kruzer to figure out which one suites your track and driving style, start w/ the Stratus and don't change your setup between bodies run the same setup.

Keep one thing in mind.. The Stratus has been discontinued for a good 6 months or longer now.

I guess that is a confirmation for the P37
I would definitely keep setups the same between body checks, otherwise what's the point? Bit obvious IMO
I still have a good 4-5 weeks to choose things, so what's the possibility of a new body hitting the market? Probably zippo.
P37, here it comes!!

I owe you and the whole nitro-sedan crowd an apology for that one. Every once in a while I get skull-cramp and just come up with a dud. It's one of the negative aspects to "progress".... I guess.

Dale, no problems. I have been using the P56 for sometime now, its my favourite. I got some P37s on order. What I really like about your bodies are the "lightweight" versions are quiet sturdy and hold shape well compared to other manufacturers

Hey to each their own ... I liked that body it evened out my car and smoothed out allot of inexperience before I knew how to set my car up properly. In fact I still recommend that body to folks running in the novice class at my home track for that very reason. It makes a twitchy car drive smoothly and makes a nervous beginner look like a pro!

We just received our P37 & it looks awesome.

Could you advise how you cut the rear window....
Did you cut on the lines, leaving the bottom or top piece.
Or did you just do your own cut.

Help appreciated

Cheers Darren

I cut two holes in the rear window. The biggest concern I have when cutting out the rear windows is not the air flow over the body, its the air flow under the body. The air that comes in thru the fueling/cooling hole has to be able to get out easily. I want the exits for the air to be much larger than the entrance. I want that air to be able to escape easily. Try it on the cut lines, and run it. Then cut out the rest of the window and see what it does. See how the car feels, and see if the engine temps change. I am not saying it is a radical difference all I am saying is to try it for yourself.

OK guys, Ive painted up and trimmed the P37 body, but I think Ive run into a problem.
In the AARCMCC rules it says that the maximum height from the rear bumper to the ground including a 10mm spacer under the chassis is 50mm, but since mounting it onto my car, its almost 60mm - i followed the trim lines and I could only find 1 trim line, not 2 like some bodies have.
Is this normal, or did I not see a lower trim line??
