    I am looking to get a new body because people say that the F150 body I have will make my driving bad. That true? I want an HPI mustang, or an old school mustang from some other company. Any good ones you have used before?
  2. Uhh,.. unless the body you have right now is a plastic wall and effects aerodynamics, I wouldn't worry about your body. Unless you plan on going 100mph+ your body doesn't really have anything to do with performance except maybe making sure your engine gets good air flow and keeping your engine cool. The only way a body would make a difference in performance is if you plan on going really fast or you don't have any holes cut in it to let your engine breathe and get the air it needs.

    The only thing that can make your driving bad is you I dont give a dam what the body looks like its the person at the controls that matters. Pro line makes some really cool looking bodies if thats what your into, but personally I think that 150 kicks but.

    what are you driving vette? On my touring cars bodies make a big differnce....if i run a mazda m6 or a stratus body and switch to a lola body my lap times are more than 1 second faster a lap. If you are just cruising then youll never notice it but get in a pack of other drivers and it makes a big difference.
