I am going to test that this weekend. I did not have an old cruze, but this weekend I will borrow one to try.

Bodies arrived. In Stock

Call your local LHS.


Dj Apolaro ran it this weekend and did a back to back test with the other body. He liked this one better.

Hey guys, sorry for the delay. Trying to get ready for the Pre-Worlds and work at the same time.

I did a test at the Arcadia track this past weekend. For me this Blitz body was more flat and the other Chevy gives the chassis more roll. I was more consistent from lap to lap with the new blitz and even had a better fast lap. About 2 tenths! Of course this is without adjusting set-up, as to give a true back to back. I think racers will be very happy with the results of the new body. It has great balance. It did have a little less initial turn in, but my laps were still faster with the new body. Gave more on power steering and high speed steering.

I tried the Cruze body back-to-back with the Audi RS4....

The Cruze had more steering but was lacking too much corner exit stability. I could not push the car out of the corners like I do with the Blitz Audi.

The Blitz Audi stability is just amazing... No matter how hard I push the car, the rear end will stay planted throughout the entire corner, even after hard acceleration at the apex.

Is there any thing I can try setup wise to plant the rear with the Cruze body??

First make sure you have the wing in the far back position. You are allowed up to 10mm off the back of the rear bumper. Then for set-up I would just try a little softer rear diff oil and see what happens. The Audi is a very stable car, but the lap time are not as good as the Cruze. The Cruze has better steering, like you said. That steering is needed (most of the time)
