Let me know...

Still interested in the DeltaPlastique bodies?
Tried to look at the bodies, but the page does not exist any more.

Can you re-post the list?

Sorry about that! I guess you can't copy and paste the addresses. I went to the original post by Matt (#862) and that one worked. Try that and let me know.

After looking at the bodies again, I have three new Parma Lola's that are painted in my old Rally Green / White that I ran in 2wd back in the late 80's. Could use one for a mold if needed.

But, I'd like the GT cars BMW 320is, Camaro ...... I'd even do the GTP cars. that would leave the open cockpit cars to the 4wd open, and door slammers to the GT class.

Plus I have 8-10 old GTP bodies in my storage room.

SO what are other people interested in?

The Lola T280 and Monza are something im interested in,but I could go a different direction if somebody else has Ideas.

Sorry I have two of the Toyotas and I can get more from Delta plastik very cheap,so no reason for me to order them from Parma,somebody was talking about Toyotas before,

Not sure it died fast, just not seeing anything that is just "Gotta Have".

My 2 cents, and not worth much as my closest place to race 1/8 scale on road is 450+ miles away, would be to use realistic GTP closed cockpit cars. In which case, I'd go for the Ferrari 512, and would take 2 or 3. Others would be the Schkee, Lancia and Porsche Group C.

I know what you mean, I'm 400 miles from the closest I know and 600 miles from my home club-Toledo. Made it up there four times this summer, don't know how many I can make in the future.....

I just want to have the bodies "in-case". Heck, Nobody has proposed any workable rules yet for the Pan class let alone defined what bodies will be used.......

Wanna sell any/all of them????

We're not (supposed to be) looking for the best handling bodies. We wanted to get different and more realistic ones. The current sports bodies ("Top Fuel" per Matt ;-)) are not really modeled after anything recognizable. One suggestion we had been considering was to run half the season with Can-Am/GTP and the other half GT.

What is "very cheap"? I think we would pay $35 USD + Shipping. (~$80 USD for up to 20 units).

Got a "ballpark" price from Parma-ABOUT $20.00 per body from .040 Lexan + shipping, 25 bodies minimum. We'll get sombody (Lon?) from Toledo to pick them up to save shipping!
They said they have nearly all the tooling and it just needs to be cleaned up and run......
