I was surprised when I heard they were discontinued. I thought they were selling well.

It also makes my how to convert a DM-1 walk-through irrelevant.

Thanks man. Yes I still have it and love it. I just don't get to drive it enough.

That's the stock Spec PF8 lid you see in the build.

I am not looking to sell it right now, but it cost me about $1200 for what you see in the build.

We've had quite a few people still asking for them. Ofna contracted us to make the kit for them and they decided not to make any more. Without the guarantee of selling them all it is hard for us to make the decision to do another run of them. We only have 1 left and it's on my car . If enough people call and harass Ofna, maybe they'll want to do another run. We may even update the layout to the current V4 kits (straight driveline, etc).

That is just too bad. I've got one as well and I love that rig. I guess I'd better not have a bad crash like I did early on.

emailed them and they said the need wasn't high enough to have tekno run another batch

Have you considered the OFNA GTPe2. It's comes already as an on-road and you could work from there to get it how you want it as far as upgrades. Just a thought.

Bought your Mugen GT shock towers to go on a MBX6 e conversion. Too bad you only do the ECO chassis in CF, that chassi is slightly too long for my bodies (got it for my Eco though)
pictures when it's done.

PM SNR and he can make any size, cut, mod, length chassis you want.

For instance, I would love to have the DM1-S front bumper/rear diffuser added to my chassis.
