ARTA handled well if you like a lot of steering. It felt like my Protoform R9R body. I think it works nice for technical smaller tracks. I haven't had a chance to see how it works at high speed though. It has a large rear spoiler, but very little angle to it. My biggest gripe with the ARTA is its weight. It is very heavy in the rear because of it having a rear bumper you have to servo tape on, and also because the rear wing is made of plastic.

Here is a pic of my vette in GT1. Its the middle car. Good shot to compare profiles with the NSX that a lot of people like.
The NSX was the RCGT choice out here. Now some of the fast guys have been running the HPI Toyota MR-S. When I was running for the "K" team I was using their Vauxhall Astra BTCC body (Think Chevy Cobalt) and it handled very well. Now that I'm with Tamiya i wanted to be brand loyal so I'm running the R35 Calsonic Super GT body and I love it but would like more "aero" steering.
