Nitrohouse should have all you need. Actually, they have the Porsche & CLK right now. Tower has the Viper.

Guess I got lucky and got a couple from Great Planes/Tower Hobbies stock from their latest OFNA order. I got two unpainted ones a couple of weeks ago. Painted one up for Bvoltz' race in Jackson, MS on March 1st. Guess I will have to opt for the Porsche body next order.

It was a pleasure meeting you as well. Glad to see that your trip turned out well. Again, you were a lifesaver. Now, I have to order a new gear set (it stripped out my second gear when the rod snapped and jammed into the side of the crankcase.

Yea, it sucks that the Modena body was discontinued because I wanted to get another one to race with and kit the other one for a shelf displayer. I am going out to and picket my local Ferrari dealership in protest!!!!!

No, those and a host of others are 'real' Rally Game cars that have been raced in Europe, mainly in Italy, for years. Pretty much all are belt driven, and IMO don't have the scale appearance of the K cars.
