Body on - more downforce, looks better and protects the car in a crash as stated above

Untill now we have Body-No Body, 5-0. I think the answer is pretty clear, don't you think?

LMAO!!! You should have seen my car when I once passed over a curb at the track at flank speed and the car became like an ice scater performing triple loop!!! LOL If there's wasn't for the body it would really have put my hands deep in my pockets for repairs...[&:]

Body
Looks better, protects car

However no body= less wind drag, better engine cooling

I still always run with body unless tuning etc

Maybe, in the speeds you are going, aerodynamics don't play an important role What car you have? If you are going up to 60, aerodynamics barely playing a major role there

What in the world?[&:]

Anyway, run with the body on, its much better. I remember when I was running my car at full speed (65+) and I hit a very small hump in the road and the car took flight and flipped and rolled idk how many times. If i wasnt runnign the body when it did that I would have had too much broken stuff to list.. rather then braking a ball cup and cracking the body up good.

in my backyard i would run without the body. if i go somewhere and i am driving my car fast i would not even have to ask myself if to use the body because i learned my lesson before. one time i was at the park with my older duratrax and i did not have the body on and i was doing nearly top speed and my car flipped and there were peices of the car all over. it was like a nightmare to see what happened.
