So far it seems to be a dump truck. It handles like a dream down the straights. That is just initial testing.

I used Mazda 787B rears on an LM dif and PN 18mm +1 fronts. I didn't take much time with it at the World's. I went with a proven set up.

Tested out in just slapping it on my MR02 w/D-Arm & 03 Board in 98 mm chassis.
Amazing turn in since so much down force were created by the steep nose and open air vents on top of the front wheels which channel the under tray air from the tires to the top of the nose.
Even strong dive in, rear can step out a bit but salvageable in not scrubbing down much speed.
Disadvantages is fragile body which nose cracked easily and rear wing never survive from racing incidences.
This 102 mm body had no problem on a 98 mm chassis.

anyone have definitive knowledge of what LM wheel sets fit under this autoscale? the chassis set looks like it comes with racer wheels (360 gt-c wheels)

anyone have a set of mazda 787b wheels they can part with? i am currently running a mix of the porsche rear wheels and mazda front wheels where both are tucked under the body slightly to avoid catching on rails.
