The Mazda 6 was the best all around body I used last year. The Nemesis was ok. The CTS-VR gives you alot of steering, for those low bite tracks.

I think you're right Mazda 6 body has to be the dominate body.

3.1 IS THE BEST BODY EVER MADE FOR ALL TYPES OF TRACKS ! THE SECRET WORD YOUR LOOKING FOR HERE IS BALANCED! WITH MAZDA YOU HAVE TOO MUCH TURN -IN .BUT FIRST YOU MUST HAVE YOUR CAR PROPERLY SET UP TO HAVE NUETRAL HANDLING THEN YOU CAN EXPLOIT THE BENEFITS ANY BODY HAS TO OFFER.

I want a body with high down force...
I have a BMW M3 GTR body and i love it...the down force is very high, it has a big rear wing...


Thanks
I say buy one of each of the top three which is Alfa Romeo,Mazda 6,and Nemesis or Stratus 3.1 and try'em out at your local then make a decision.

Also funny enough the same trend I have seen with speaking with others is playing out on the forums here. I think its the only thing we can all agree upon.

Mazda 6 body set up

I've been racing R/C for about 1 year and have a question how a body should set on the car.
Is it better to have it placed more forward on the car, in the middle or toward the back?
How high should the wing be?
I race on a 180 foot by 90 foot track so the straight away is sorta long but the middle is fairly technical (for me).
Any advice.

Mount the body central and cut the wing along the line and mount it a bit further back (2-3mm) than normal

I would like to see a G6 body in 200mm trim. It is a dead sexy body and looks fast just sitting on the bench.

I have used the Cadillac, Mazda 6 and Stratus 3.1, out of all of them I prefer the Stratus 3.1 for small to medium size tracks and the Cadillac for parking lot tracks. The Mazda 6 I have stopped using cuz I like the "feel" of the Stratus more than the Mazda.
