Hey WildBill,
The wheelbase on the DM-1 Pro is 14.88in. I believe the Pro's wheelbase is an inch longer then the IGT2. I've been searching for other body options ever since I bought the car a few months ago, I currently own the CLK body with the G35 body on order. If I'm not mistaken Ofna has discontinued the Carrera body, which I find to be very odd.

Well, the GT2 is 360mm or 14.17 inches, and I looked up the specs for the DM pro, which is 387mm.

Width for the GT2 is 310mm and 317mm for the DM

The truck body I use would really fit it nice as it is slightly longer than the GT2, the truck body is for 385mm wheelbase chassis, so it should look perfect on your car. Width should not be a problem.

So looks like you are limited to the CLK, G35, or SC8 bodies.

I'll look around though and see what else I can find.

Yes I did see your IGT2 with the SC8 body...pretty sweet!! How's the handling in comparison to a standard IGT2 body? I don't understand why this car has such a limited body selection, from Ofna or third party? This car races competitively up here, against IGT, IGT2, & DM-1 specs, what's it like down south? I was also wondering if you have free shipping to Canada, if not what are your rates like for shipping to Toronto?

It's on a DM-1 spec.
I like it with the black rims myself!! But I had a couple questions regarding bodies for the DM-1 Pro 1/7. First why was the Carrera body discontinued? Second are there any new bodies planned for this car? Its my hope that this fine chassis won't be limited to just two body types.

The Ofna Dirt Oval body will also work on the DM-1 Pro.
The roof line is really low and it helps the car handle great
at hi-speeds.

Thanks for the fast reply!! Hmmm I didn't know that the Dirt Oval body could fit the 1/7
DM-1. But I should have been a little more specific, I meant are there going to be more sedan options...prototype or otherwise? Discontinuing the Carrera body really limited our options and this chassis hasn't received any third party support. So the more Ofna can offer the better! I already own the CLK & G35 bodies but its the Carrera that I need!! Lol
I hope that Ofna is continuing body R&D for this car! For such a competitive car, don't let limited body options hamper an otherwise limitless platform. No disrespect intended

Please, posting your girlfriends picture was unnecessary.
Is the Warrior body the best fit on her too.

As far as bodies go once I tried the Warrior I won't go back to the Protoform. I noticed that with it I could go flat out in corners that I couldn't before.
