DOn't count out the Protoform Volvo s60. It works well on small tracks as well as the huge ones. Plus it is thicker than the other Protoforms and holds up pretty well.

second that on the protofrom volvo. Excellent body - the fastest and best handling nitro 1/10 I've ever seen run on a small track was running a ntc3 with that body. (the driver was pretty darn good though )

Also the hpi nsx is a well-kept secret. The body is better on small tracks than a lola IMO, has excellent steering AND stability - which is hard to find. It doesn't scrub corner speed on tight tracks like a lola. I haven't any problems with it's durability - it's taken some major abuse and still is in one piece. It's so good I've bought a few more.

misfitslvr that is a lola body and they are not roar legal. they fit on most 200mm touring car but on some if the front shock towers aren't the laydown type you will have to either cut the front of the body, heat the lexan of the body and form bubbles, or trim the shock towers down to fit. This is an issue on the NTC3 but they mount on impulse, reflex, V1RR, yokomo GT4R with no modifications other than making sure foam bumper is trimmed.

In this pic the wing is at its highest.
nothing in the left column at at www.kthobbies.com.about pictures .... what happened?

Got tons of down force in the rear. My car was a lot easier to drive. The only drawback is that if you roll the car over (nobody does that, right?) it is easier to damage the wing. But other than that it fits well, and loks good.
Its actually very solid when flipping, but if you are in a tight space and you brake harder than the guy behind you, if he rides up the back of your car, the wing is history because it rips at the base of the body. If you don't have washers on the top screws (which you should) those screws would rip through the wing. But that is easily fixed with washers (which you should've done in the first place).

Anybody tried the new Proline Altima body yet? I refuse to be a clone and get a Stratus if I have to get a ROAR body.

I always used the Protoform Stratus body you can't go wrong with that. I think I will take up some of the suggestions in this forum and try something new. I might even try a new color now that will blow everyone away.
