EDIT2: and not even in mr wedge… pure evil


Ohh yeah sounds awesome! I would have bet on those bodies again. But I will not use them again, I like to be different than the mainstream.

At this Moment i can tell you that i don’t lost alot Time at the ATT. Weight is 1026,5 now.


I’m trying to use the 2 door hatch but it’s not working. way too heavy.

I’am sad thath the Saab body is to old now, every season i build one and now after the lack of top speed last season i wanted to build a over 300km/h fast car. No I found something between the saab and the Rally-Shorttrack-Kornerkiller. But as every car i build until now Its again a Wheel-Spinnig FR maschine.

Barth body??

soo…this body on the picture is not allowed? i don’t know the type of this body(mod or not a mod)

That exact body is not. If it does not have a red R on it then it is allowed.

Every body with a big red R/M/F in it is a Barth body?

AFAIK R bodies allow bigger engines and rear engine. Correct me if I’m wrong!
