Its the part shown below right? I might have to give it a shot because it looks like the old piece is hard to get. Unless another company has produced a similar part but I can't seem to find one.

World GT style bodies from protoform & parma are good choice

Frewer does a 200mm body that isn't too bad. Not sure what shipping is overseas unless you have someone nearby that stocks his stuff.
I bought a Sophia, but only because there was nothing else I knew of at the time.
I can't believe Protoform stopped production of them just as they started getting popular again!

Default parts and shells

Yes that is the carbon part for motor plates on both sides.

Shells the Protoform Sophia is the best shell for indoors and the corvette for outdoors.
We dont want the old side plate back the motor plate on both sides with the new top plate is the best option.

Anyone want to run bodies like the Mulsanne? I have one that I just dropped onto my WGT chassis. Really looks good. Not that I have anything against the more street car based bodies, but a real purpose designed racing body, looks like exactly that, a full blooded race car from the ground up.

I tried one, couldn't drive it, trashed it after only 2 meetings.
Too much rear end downforce and not enough front, meant having to increase the steering lock which caused car to hook coming out of corners.
Went back to the PF Corvette (outdoor 2s 17.5 racing).

I only played around a couple times with the Mulsanne, but found with a bit more camber up front, it was fine. I suppose if the manufacturers would produce a couple other styles, they could get a bit of the front downforce needed. They do it with 1/12th bodies. There is quite a range to use depending on what you need and like. Same used to be true of 1/10 pan car racing bodies, back when I had a few less gray hairs.

proline and other companies seem to have forgotten the 1/10 pan cars

Car had loads more front end, and good rear end with the now discontinued PF Corvette, and was actually quicker on the whole lap, where as the mulsanne had the highest top speed.
Think Canada has it right with using just HPI Shells, something Japan is close to, except they also allow in other makes, but NOT the PF Mulsanne and Sophia and NOT the Parma Blob (Sorry, the supposed Aston Martin).

That's laying up-side-down. Need to get another right side motor plate to use on the left side to have something to attach it to.

I'm using one.
