Hey Eric, can you share any more info on this? Would love to have an estimate on a release date, if possible. My next body is nearly due for replacement.
Very soon!

It looks like PROTOform is just about ready to reveal their new body to the world. They posted a very blurry image on PROTOform's Facebook Page and captioned it with "Something big is coming.

Share or Like this image, and the more page likes we get, the faster we'll start the reveal!"


If you have a second, please go to PROTOform's Facebook Page and click 'Like' on their blurry image so we can all see the clear image sooner.

Thumbs up

Just to be clear...the blurry image that's going to be revealed has nothing to do with the VTA release on Monday. It's an entirely different project currently in development.

Ok, so the blurry image is not VTA related. What about this image? It has a big clue with the bird and all...

I think that ones pretty self explanatory. Monday will be the release of the body you've been waiting for.

So any chance we could see a third challenger in the WGT class...say based on the new C7.R challenger that will be running worldwide beginning next year?

Now this is what I call a true-scale VTA body! PROTOform did a great job on their new '71 Pontiac Trans-Am body. It really screams "TRANS-AM"!

Top 4 drivers in qualifying at the Southern Nationals were using Protoform VTA bodies this past weekend.

I was getting ready to paint a 12th scale body the other day and as I was masking up the window, I realized the "Genuine Protoform" sticker was on the INSIDE of the body. I had to use goo-gone to get the residue off...I understand you need to protect your products but can't you put that sticker on the outside of the body? When I washed it up, I assumed incorrectly that it was on the outside of the body. I couldn't believe anyone would put that sort of sticker on the inside.

That said, I loved the way the TR-12 handled.
