Weight is going to be a big deal..just as an example the Lotus 7 is very light and gives the big cars fits on a road course because of that. Running a stock body one needs to remove everything but the skin basically and use a tube chassis and aluminum inner panels as well as fiberglass and composite fenders and door panels..Kinda like a funny car construction in order to get the weight down. Remember you only have a certain size of tire patch to handle the side loads of cornering.

I have tried most all of it and now do what is known to work..
