That would be the Blitz RS4, and yes it's great.

the oppinions are different. i find the RS4 too stable and drive the p37N wich is very reactive. Good overall steering , low speed and high speed. But when you set up the car for the RS4 with steering andthen try the P37N,it will let the car spin out. The otherway around; setup the car with the P37n to have an stable rearend, and then try the RS4 you will vind that the RS4 has no steering at all.

So setup is everything. Hope it helps you
I like al lot of steering to begin with, and then remove steerinthrow and get the rear to stick by setup. This is easyer then trying to get steering.

Read some articles about the P37N looks good. I guess I will have to try one in order to test my Kyosho R4 on a very tight track

Tried the 37n and the 56n

Strangly enough i found the 56n had better steering and a better allrounder!!!

Whats your thought?

It all depends on your track and your setup. However the Blitz Altis has always worked good for me. Best of all it also comes partially painted.

Yesterday tested the Parma Alfa 156 on my RRR and not surprisingly it has straight line stability,speed and it's reactive to inputs,pretty much like a real Alfa Romeo.The bad side is too much straight line stability so steering suffered,maybe it was because the track surface didn't offered much traction but this body will be reserved to low traction surfaces.I keep hearing about the Blitz and had one Alfa 156 from them felt like this one so next year I'll try the altis and rs4.
Allrounder?Hmmm...Stratus?Had the team magic one and felt like the Parma 156 with more drag and less reactive.

Protoform P37 for sure. Ran this years nationals with one and it handled just fine.

Personally I tried it and didn't really like it as for the extra bit of steering it gives the rear was all over the place.

I guess it depends on driving style.

I have driven the rs4 and p37n and liked the P37N because of the steering it has. But when ever i put the old stratus 3 body on it was even better.

The best body is the stratus 3 body. Good overall stability and steering.
I still drive the P37N though, they don`t make the stratus anymore
