So what I need is a stable body with some steering, would it be the stratus 2.1 then or what?

My biggest problem is that it has to be legal for racing, and I can't say that EFRA is too generous about legalizing bodies.. This is the total list.. Bodies marked with a red * are not legal to use in EFRA races, only in Swedish ones...

Not much to choose from is there. I would go with the Mazda 6. That's what most people I know use.

Yes, I'll probably do so... Why can't EFRA be a little more generous with bodies?

Also how about the nemisis body by protoform it handles pretty well on my tecnical track w/tight turns and 1 good straight strecth.I got the stratus lid that came w/car Ld3 & it handles pretty well but the nemesis holds the turns pretty well. IMO I think that the mazda 6 and nemisis lid is almost the same in aerodynamics check it out......more fire

The nemesis is not a race legal body (ok well not by ROAR regulations) it is not a replica of a 1/1 race car.

That is protoforms own design, though it does handle very well, much like the Crowd pleazer TC they used to produce. A lot of the guys I club race with used to use the pleazer body because the club allowed it and it worked well on our track.

same will apply with the Nemesis.
