The bodies are totally different.

The P-37 was started by taking the Stratus mold and then making a lot of changes. The p-37 is a much easier body to drive and is more stable at all speeds.

The SRS is a more aggressive body.

I have raced both bodies and used both many times starting with just prior to their respective release(s).

Sometimes I am faster with one and sometimes with the other. I always take both bodies with me to every race.

You would be best suited trying them both but you find that at different tracks you prefer a different body.

Negative lift.
Body pushing car into the road for more grip.

I've not driven the P-37N but I have driven the SRS-N a lot and I find it's very aggressive and slightly unstable during fast sweepers.

I've found the Blitz RS4 to be a far more stable and easier to drive body shell.. if that's worth anything.

About 10 grams lighter than regular weight(P37). I could not tell the difference in handling. But the light-weight can not take much abuse.


Pass you soon...

I have not weighed the standard and lite bodies so I will believe what the previous poster had said. A lighter body will handle better due to the difference in center of gravity. The body is the highest point on the car so lighter is better in that respect. As stated, the thinner bodies don't take the abuse quite as well.
