Thanks.

Use the aluminum pop rivets.
The two sided tape will sometimes get fuel under the tape and eventually let go.
When you use the aluminum pop rivets, be sure and use the pop rivet washers also.
It really helps to stengthen the attatchment to the body.
You can also cut small pieces of scrap lexan and use this as a washer.

Any other reviews on the P37?

I would like to know how it compares to the P56? Anyone done any back to back testing?

Anyone else tested the P37 against the Cruizer now that it has been out for a few months?

I have run all three bodies. The P37 just seems to carry a bit more corner speed than the P56. I have gone back to back with those bodes on two different tracks. The first time out, the P37 seemed to hold a bit better and the car was less ragged. On the second track, I really could not feel any differences.

I compared the P56 to the Cruzer at the Worlds in Houston. A former team mate gave me one to try as I was really struggling to make my car handle. I felt my car was a bit more planted with the Chevy, but the stopwatch told me I was faster with the Protoform.

1 thing I feel quite certain about is that how you want the car to feel, how you drive it, and how you setup the car will have a major impact on what body you will be more comfortable with. I will also say that being comfortable and being fast are not always the same thing.

I'm planning on testing the P37, P56, Blitz cruzer, blitz RS4 and SRC Kruzer V2 this weekend (if the weather allows it).
I will post my findings in the Lab-c01 thread.

That's if you trust my words and don't think it's all marketing. (Joking )

From what I can tell, the P56 seems to be a good body for your more free-flowing tracks while the P37 is more for your tracks that are more technical. In fact, the P56 is comparable to the Blitz Altis 2.3 body (which I have used and worked really great on open, free-flowing tracks).
