Hey guys, is any body allowed in the GT1 class or is it only the Tamiya bodies? Also what tires are you running for carpet?

Thanks for any info.

What is the difference in handling between the 360 Modena and the NSX?

I would love to be able to compare but last year I ran the NSX. It was ok but it wasn't like running any of the other bodies out there.... It felt pretty dead except on initial entry. I have heard the 360 handles better so I will be trying that one out this year.

360 = most steering and possible body tuck in the rear fender area

NSX = ballanced w/good steering

Skylline = stable

just my take

ive always looked at it this way:

360 modena = alfa
NSX = stratus

btw.... 360 modena suffers from the DREADED rear wheel well tuck disease.

360= nose of other car+your rear fender=GUARANTEED body tuck Unless you run the standard weight version, in which case, is about 50% body tuck.

You might also want to try the new 350Z body. At TCS worlds, the top driver of the TRF class used the new Z body and whooped everyone.

Terence and I are planning on Freemont (the entire CoBroRa team).

360 regular body - no problems.
360 light weight - lots of rear wheel tuck.

Chris - What do you think of your testing with the 350Z ? Similar to the older Skyline ?

Will be helpful to know if we need to bring power, tables, chairs, etc. for the Freemont race. Anyone know ? Oh yeah, do we need to bring cars also ??

CoBroRa / TAOB

For as poorly as I cut out the wheel wells, That's never really been a problem for me. I normally have enough space craved out to run Proline Road Rages on my sedan car.
