I would love it if you guys made a Gen 6 Chevy SS nascar body. I just can't buy the Toyota gen 6 you guys made.

Sorry I didn't see this thread for a while!! I leave mine at the longest cut line but am planning to test one cut to the upper line and compare.

Any news/rumours on any new 200mm TC bodies this year in preparation for the Worlds in November?

A 190mm Chevy SS Touring Car body would be cool as well.

I would love to see a Porsche 911 gt and a BMW m3 or m5 racing body. But I'm probably alone in that boat as I'm the only person I know of who run HPI realistic looking bodies on a serpent747

I would really like it if you marked your wing kits like the ones that come with the bodies, or like an mr33 to save the hassle of centering them. Even a printable template from your website would be fantastic.

I have found an issue with the Mazda 6 GX bodies.

The rear raised sections that the wing mounts onto are not identical. They stick out different amounts and are in slightly different positions.
If you mount a wing using the dimples on the body the wing will stick out more on the right hand side (looking from the rear).
I'll try to take a photo later.

Hey Dale and Co - how about '67 Mercury Cougar? You've done such a kick butt job with the J71 and Firebird - another vintage body would really be awesome

or maybe a '63 Ford Falcon???

How about a 1967 dodge dart for the Vita crowd?

Just found this thread.

I wish you'd consider to sell painted replica bodies of IFMAR World Champions.

This would boost your sales (and also encourage exclusive sponsorship) with the champs.

A BMW m3 or m5 1/8 or 1/10. You'd have a customer for life!

At the a Reedy Race, I saw the "new" sedan body Dale had just pulled. He was showing it to Reinhardt.

When can we expect to see the "v" sedan?

Hey Craig,

The new body was for 200mm nitro racing, the VRS-N. It's available now, here's more info:

Eric,

Thanks. I told your dad it was a good looking car, hope you sell a lot of them.

At the Reedy Race, I overheard Andy Moore telling somebody when he used the "hard" wing and when they used the softer one that comes on the body, but I didn't catch enough of it to get what he was saying.

Can you elaborate on the differences?
