Default New PROTOform 1/12th LMP On-Road Body

The Strakka-12 designed specifically for the 13.5 and 17.5 "Super Stock" type classes.
There's an add-on Gurney flap that is optional for those that might want to use this body on a Mod class car
(but only in situations where the carpet is really hooked-up and 1/12th Mod cars are turning well)

Pre-release testing has so far yielded some really impressive performance

Available now - however orders have been quite brisk already - so be patient please.

Best regards - Dale Epp - PROTOform

Nice work Dale and Eric. Not sure how much you care but in the 3/4 rear shot of the body the white wheel on the opposite side is visible. FYI.

Last week's huge IIC race in Vegas was the first time the Protoform Strakka body was put to the test.

The results were more that we could have hoped for here at PF. Greg Xavier used a Strakka body and dominated 17.5 qualifying up until the last round where he was denied the pole by a fraction. He then Won the A-Main while the unheralded Kyle Goodwine (of RC aeroplane fame) finished a fine 3rd place also using the Strakka.

Austria's Huppo Honigle finished with a podium position in 13.5 using the new Strakka body as well.
