Just found out from Dale E, designer of the new Ford GT body, that Proline/Protoform was closed from Sept 1-6 for the Labor Day holiday.

So, be patient.

The 200mm Caddy fits the SpeedMerchant. Needs painting now.

We can thank Dale.

The PFM-10 fits the CRC WGT-R car perfectly...as Dumper already said.

Per Dale's last pictures of the new Ford GT, I noted a smaller than 96T spur gear on the CRC car. So, we may need to run a smaller spur to clear the tunnel depression in the body. Still waiting to receive one to test fit for all clearances.

Got a tracking number for my GT40 body this evening.
Thanks Dale!

Has anyone noticed that you have to open up the front wheel wells more with the rubber tires ? Trying to mount an old Sophia body .

One is 62mm, the other was never over 58mm. The Sophia body is not on the WGT-R list nor is any other old WGT body. They were not meant for rubber tires. I personally cut my WGT foams to the 51 to 52 range for the rears, 51 on the front.

As far as fit, weight, handling and popularity which bodies on the list are most popular for 200mm Rubber tires??

Fitment may well depend on what chassis you are running. Body post and bumper placements are likely different between CRC and SpeedMerchant WGT-R cars.

I can only speak to CRC cars...
