On my small track at home the Dart is consistently a tenth faster than the MazdaSpeed6 in Mod, but I haven't quite figured out a setup I like with it yet on larger tracks like Thunder or IIC. I think our local Stock guys feel the same way about it.

I haven't tried one mounted forward at all yet but I do want to at some point.
Thanks guys,

Default brittle body ??

Need some help..I purchased the lightweight mazda gx lightweight body,painted it white and carrying it of the track I poked my thumb through the frt bumper with very little pressure.To say I was shocked is an understatement,but I chalked it up to possibility of prior damage although I could not remember hitting anything in a manner to cause the damage.So I bought a new body (same part number) painted it it up and when I used my reamer to place the body post holes the body around the hole shattered like plate glass . Is it normal for these bodys to be that fragile? I have been using pf bodys for years and never had this issue before ....

Eric, how about some 1/8 On-Road bodies tailored to the Classic / Vintage 2wd Pan Car Class? Perhaps an open wheel body or Can-Am car?

I would love to see your wing kits have pre marked holes.

Hi Mackenzie,
We actually updated our 190mm Pro-TC Wing molds a couple months ago to have the markings on them. It make take a while for the old ones to filter out through hobby shops etc., but this is a change we did make.

Im not sure if this has been brought up before. Would you guys be considering making the cadillac cts-v body for the usgt class of cars? would be a great partner to the camaro. I have raced and won with the camaro but its getting long in the tooth and everybody is running one. I would love to see the CTS-V body made. I think it would be a popular body choice since its a current racing car. Thanks, doug.

I seem to remember Protoform making a CTS-V. It was pretty cool looking too!!! Im sure some of his more modern designs work a little better though.

My one wish is for PROTOform to bring back the 200mm Corvette body (like this C6-R they made a few years ago).
