Saleen is 0 all around. Not very good really. The Ford GT is 2.5 rear and 1 front, if I remember correctly. Not a bad body but rides high.

If you don't mind RM then there's always the 575 GTC or a Honda NSX.

And if you can get your hands on one, there's the Astom Martin DBR9 - same offset as the Enzo and is also MM!!

Don't forget the VDS too! Cheap n'all! +3 all around and MM!

i need a new body, the mustang doesnt really cut it for racing:rolleyes: ive been looking at the aston, its quite high as an asc, the whitebody comes with the clips off so you can put them higher and lower it tho.

well the saleen is out of the running now not sure about the vds really wanted somthing with a rounded front so it dosent snag on the track so much dont really want to change my motorpod and wheelbase much so i might have to get the ford gt for a stop gap and thanks liam for pointing this out http://minizracer.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=25696&d=1224177835 might be the answer in the long run just got to wait for it to come out

they say its a 98mm wheelbase with +2 offset which would allow me to run 0mm or +1mm on the front might cure my problem of losing front tyres it looks basicly a mclaren with a body kit on it http://www.motorsport.com/photos/lemans/1997/24h/lemans-1997-24-pm-0120.jpg

lol, you can run 0 or 1's on the front of it, i tried that on the 575gtc and it actually looked like i had no wheels:rolleyes: the other thing is, it may cause abit of roll into the corners, not quite sure though. for not loosing tires, id try the atomic 5spoke rims. the mr02 versions are bigger and thus hold the tire tighter, so its harder for it to come off.

I used to have the GT 40, and i seem to remember one problem with it being, that if you use the recommended offset it rides the walls, so you really need to go at least 1 offset less to counter the problem, this then counters the whole reason as to why you wanted to change body shells in the first place! :rolleyes:
I'd say if you want a good all-round shell for racing and taking the barrier-knocks smoothly, go for the Farrari Enzo, its very popular, but thats because it is very good!
