Looks to have a much more aggressive front bias versus the (Not So) old body.

Well I see Dale listened to the racers and provided the right wing hardware

Can any of the guys who were privileged to test the Prototypes tell if it is twitchy as the P56-N

Agreed...it's a revised Stratus with a more aggresive front, etc....it is said so in the product description....it should work fine.

In addition, it has the new style narrowing roofline and has ridges on the rear fenders.

I ran this body for the first time over the weekend in Texas. This was the final Southwest series race. This is a parking lot track. Traction was low-medium.

I only have Protoform bodies so I compared it to the P-56. We (me and my pit guy) did not use a stopwatch, but me driving and he observing felt the body turned in better, carried the same rear grip and carried more corner speed. I did manage to TQ the race by 6 seconds with this new body. I am very anxious to try this on a permanant track with high grip, but so far so good. Just for the record, I was using the standard weight body as there were no light weight ones available when I ordered. I will carry both bodies with me for the next few races until I get some more testing done.

I agree, the body looked great and seemed to allow you to make tighter turns. Good racing by the way!!
