I would bet they use the soft wing on big fast flowing tracks where downforce isn't as critical. The soft wing should flex at high speed and act as sort of a "drs" system.

Eric I would like to suggest a gt body that I would like to see PF build. I think this body would have a performance edge on most of the Gt bodies that we are racing now. The body I would like to see get PF to produce is a Cadillac CTS-V I tried to get a pic to display but since I am on my phone I can't cut and paste. If you just google 2014 Cadillac CTS-V racecar you will see a high down force RC car body. That would be close to a TC body! My .02 cents I hope you at least consider it.

Protoform produced a Cadillac CTS body years ago... Around 2004-2005 maybe? Would be a good fit with all the GT style classes popping up these days.

Actually, regarding the Protoform CTS-V, I believe Dale did such a great job designing that body that the guys at Cadillac were blown away by it. I think it was one of Dale's favorites. It was a pretty badass looking body. I don't recall how it handled because it's been years since I ran one and other bodies such as the Mazda were really taking off in popularity.

I mentioned this before but I would not mind seeing something based on one of the 2014 or 2015 LMP cars (Porsche 919, Toyota TS040, Lotus T129, Ligier JS P2, etc) I think that would really be a nice thing for the new USLMP class or maybe LM1 class (for those wanting a class for that car)

Nothing against the DP bodywork, I just have always preferred the FIA WEC/WSC closed cockpit cars (I wouldn't mind seeing one based on the Skyactiv prototype either really)

Default GT12

Has anyone tried to mount the GT12 on a regular 12th scale pan chassis?

+1 - The Protoform CTS-V was a work of art, probably my favorite of all of their offerings. Wouldn't mind seeing an updated version designed for use with today's rubber tire TC cars.

This is actually a really great idea, since there is now a dedicated class for these types of bodies, wheras as back when we did the original there was no way it was competing against the Stratuses (Stratii?) or Speed6s of the world.

Planning for a release the first week of September. Bodies will come with helmets. No wings, but never say never.

Eric, how about the New Honda / Acura NSX that will manufactured in Ohio. That body should be popular for the USGT Class. Honda will be racing these cars in Asia, Europe and North America.
Thanks
John
