I donít know what the story is but heís definitly not producing a whole lot of bodies right now if heís making any at all. This tells the story and itís been like that for several months now: http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/WTI0095P

SoCal Raceway does have the Andyís Stratus (in Yokomo packaging) in stock right now at: http://www.socalrc.com/Merchant2/mer..._Code=yokparts . I donít know if they ship to Sweden though.

From what I was told your rumors are true. Hopefully Trinity will correct the problem Andy's bodies have had these last couple of months. His bodies are falling apart in the front. I don't know if that was due to a bad batch of lexan or what but even some of his sponsored driver's are running Protoform bodies. Oh well......

Yes, that is the truth. Andy's will be another addition to Trinity's line. Andy's can go no where else but up. as far as bodies falling apart, i don't have that problem. Andy's bodies have alway been #1 with me

I've never had problems either with Andy's. I actually don't care too much for Protoform bodies. The lexan is thin, and no outer mask. I actually prefer the HPI- thicker lexan, outer masking, cheaper, more detailed front, and nicer decal package.

And actually it's about time Andy made some money off the Stratus, because every other body manufacturer ripped him off years back after the initial success of his Stratus body design. BTW I thought Andy's already had dealings with Yokomo.

Nope..i guess what ever yokomo has, that's it of the stratus. Ttrinity will take over all Andy's orders and will briong out 10 more different bodies within the year.
