    GT12 Bodies

    What are the best bodies for Am and Pro GT12. Want to make sure the final testing for the new BSP GT12 chassis is using the correct shells.

    it would to pick the best body for you. I drive a PMP chassis and love the BMW, but the Parma Dome works well also. not sure what works on the BSP chassis, tires, track, your driving style. but that is a good place to start

    Brian,

    I think that what's noted above is what most guys think:

    Am:
    Parma Caddy HD or RF Starfighter HD, usually the short one. Both often mounted lower than 1 5/8". The RF probably the most popular.

    Pro:
    JK BMW v12 or RF Peugeot 908 or Parma Dome, the first two the most popular. I find the BMW to be much faster than it looks like it should be. :-)

    Good luck with the chassis!

    For Pro, I've seen the RF R-18 work really well too but that was on a Mack BD3.

    Jaybird is right, I think. I tested the RF Peugeot, the RF Audi R-18, and the JK BMW carefully at Mid-Am last year with a fast Mack BD-2. I am only an average driver. For me, the Peugeot was slightly slower, and the BMW and the Audi R-18 the same exactly, tho the BMW was quieter on the track and easier to drive. That said, many guys faster than me run the Peugeots. The R-18 has the clear advantage that sucking the rear spoiler is much less likely.

    Yup, you can't do better than the JK Products BMW...older body, but it is real smooth and doesn't squid around on the track. The only thing compares to the Fighter for AM may be the HD Caddy, Zip's fave.

    Correct, GG ran the BMW. He also used a Saunders chassis.
