What car?


Or is this such an endless string thread with "what do you drive" ?

I used to run the Zyteh body for a while, but after Protoform comes out with the P909, I start running those. In Hong Kong, the pricing for those bodies are similar, and it all depends on how easy I can get whatever. But right now, pretty much all the guys are running the P909

I used to run Protoform, but found them to be too fragile and thin
I use Blitz bodies now, and they are MUCH better quality then the Protoform ones in my opinion
I'm running Blitz ISF 2.0 EFRA2037 as the ISF 2.1 EFRA2043 wasn't on the IFMAR list yet.
At MRCCR's track at Lilydale, it seemed to suit my Serpent 733TE perfectly and the car felt very well balanced
Make sure the holes are cut in a thoughtful way with regards to aero's or a good body can feel horrible

I tried locating that body type here in the states and I am having a hard time. Is it not here in the U.S?

ok... so I'm going to be heading towards the Blitz and Protoform direction. Do both bodies handle about the same. Or does one have a better benefit than the other.

Go with the Blitz body. It is one of the best bodies out there and like EEL Monster said it is a little better than the protoform. I run the Cruze bodies with Mugen MTX-5. It gives me a lot of steering and it is very stable on the stright. Hope this helps

Can you please explain the handling differences between the P37 and the P56?

I find on most tracks the P56 has more steering and in many instances I find it to be too loose. However some tracks where my car seems to push, such as the GLARCRC track, I like the P56.

Most of the time I prefer the P37 but I do use the P56 from time to time.

Has the P37 more steering than Cruze, but Cruze is more stable?

There is a new body from Protoform that is awesome. Has a lot of steering and still very stable. With high bite you might even have to take out steering. It is called the "SRS-N"

Here is a link to the new release and photo's

http://www.redrc.net/2012/02/protofo...dy/#more-52253

We just ran them at the resent Winternats and they worked really good.
