    Eurosport: Which Body Is Faster?

    Over the past three years, three different bodies have been mandated or favored by racers in 1/24 Eurosport. The 2008 Nats had the Red Fox Audi R10 (long), the 2009 Nats had the Red Fox Acura, and the 2010 Nats had the Red Fox R10 (ISRA). Which body is the fastest? Please back up your vote with solid data, not just based on what you "think" is the fastest body.

    Hey George, maybe the more meaningful poll would have been: which body can go the farthest without experiencing the dreaded body suck? :-)

    I voted for the current body because it is the one I have gone the fastest with at Mid-America. I know, it could have been the resurfaced track, car, motor, tires or the excellent new Fettroller I am currently using from 3rd Eye, but whatever the reason I voted for the current body. I like the over all balance I get with the car, maybe the long Audi and Acura had more down force, but my results have been better with the new body.

    1 - yes... I am in a different time zone... a day ahead of you, and I'm actually sleeping on a somewhat more "normal" schedule.
    2 - yes, I am surrounded by gorgeous examples of the opposite sex now... (but very happy with the one that is mine)
    BTW - Miss Philippines was 4th runner up in Miss Universe yesterday (but I think my own Miss Philippines is even better )
    3 - I'm taking my own poll - was it fastest body, or best body??? let me check... ( I better not comment on KVAN's "body suck" remark...)
    4 - I've got your Davao coffee.... PM me your address.


    P.S. - HEY! Who changed my avatar??? Jim????

    Here's what motivated me to start this poll. There seems to be some who feel that a 1/24 Eurosport using ISRA rules is slower than a 1/24 Eurosport using rules from the 2008 and 2009 USRA Nationals. I have done extensive, I mean really extensive testing over the past year preparing for the upcoming Worlds. I've concluded that there is really no difference. In fact, I prefer the ISRA rules and think my cars work better. Let's look at the rear tire track. In USRA in 08 and 09 we had to run 3.250". Now using ISRA rules we are wider at 3.267", quite a difference. Take a look at the SPOILER on the ISRA Audi R10 (short) and compare it to the WING on the bodies we used to run in USRA. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that big swoopy curved spoiler on our current body gives more downforce than the angled "wing" on the longer bodies. True, the ISRA body may be only mounted a maximum of 35mm which is considerably lower than the 1 5/8" we used to run in USRA....but that also translates into a lower c.g. My conclusion is that these three bodies are really quite evenly matched when taking into consideration the other rules for the class. I would tend to say that the Acura is the slowest body, I think the two Audi R10s, although equal, are better bodies.
