How strong is the fiberglass body on the Ultima? I have looked at several kit cars, FF5 GTM, RCR Superlite SL-C etc and the body shell seems really flimsy.

I know the frames are really strong, I just don't want a thin outer body shell -

Is the GTR or Evolution body flimsy?

Is the Evolution body stronger than the GTR?(Since they say they have improved the body and finishes for the Evolution).

I have seen 2 girl models sitting on an Evolution body at a car show (so they must be strong??)

Body is very strong, when the factory says, Improved body, they mean improved molds that the bodies are laid in. I can sit on the fender with feet offthe ground with out snapping it, 185 lbs.
