Default Protoform 909 vs Protoform R15B?

Those who have used these two bodies care to share your comparison.

Best way for me to explain the difference between the two bodies from my experience would be, the 909 keeps my car and setup planted and with some understeer and very stable. R15 frees up the car for more steering and doesn't feel as planted to the floor as the 909...

I use both of them and what I'm feeling is that...
909 = Ice man
R15 = Mavrick

Hi Danny!

The above is very well said, I agree with this completely. I have used both bodies extensively and myself prefer the P909. The R15B is more aggressive and I believe you could turn a single faster lap with the R15, but your overall run would be slower because it is harder to be consistant lap after lap with the R15.

Good luck!
