I have both the Protoform Sophia and the HPI 200mm Alfa 8C. The HPI body looks more scale but the Sophia, which BTW also looks good if painted and decaled right, fits the pan chassis better. Performance wise I like the Sophia better because its more lower in profile than the HPI body. But thats probably why its called a Sophia(other than licencing issues) because it isn't proportioned to look exactly like an 8C.
I think they would look perfect as WGT cars, granted to get them to work as well as the sophia they wouldn't look perfectly to scale but they all have the similar shapes. I don't think the WGT community needs better handling shells but more variation would be nice.

Tempted to get a HPI Porsche shell and find a setup that will make it work!

The Audi R18 might be really cutting-edge, cool looking, revolutionary, etc, etc. One thing it is not however is "beautiful".

Really? I have to question your perception of aesthetics. The dorsal fin is its' only marginal stylistic element IMHO.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder though.

Hi, Thanks for your comments on aesthetics. I am an engineer so
high tech, technology and new designs are a beauty to me. Ed
Delgado thinks the the Porsche 962 is the most beautiful and I
respect that. Some people like brunettes and others like blondes.

And then there's hair coloring to make the brunettes vs blondes equation impossible. And what about red, blue, green, purple...???

Gwen Stefani with pink hair, that's beautiful.

As for cars, I haven't seen a prototype I thought was really beautiful since the end of IMSA, start of WSC. The old TWR Jags, Nissan, Corvette, 956/962, etc. just blow everything since away. And going back even more, 908/3, 917/10 and /30, most of the old Ferrari's, etc. are even better. Most of today's prototypes just look too big and bulky. The things look like a German tank next to a 908/3.

It's like paintings, I can appreciate Da Vinci, Rembrandt, and Van Gogh, though they are quite different. So too with Group 6, IMSA, and LMP 1.

So running 39 with boost...
Then indeed higher then the 42 i mentioned.
Rollout of 60 is what we are running with a 32T formula tuned motor in a F104 with 2S
Needless to say that your motor is running faster and needs a lower rollout.
Was forgetting the 1S lipo.
We run the 200WGT with 17.5 and 2S and a rollout of 40 tot 41 boosted
