i just got a dm-1 converted to brushless with the shorter dm-1e chassis...one of the reason why is because there's no body for the 1/7th DM-1...or so the original owner said...i'm new to all of this but will probably be in this hobby for a while since my son is interested in it as well...it's something we can do together n something learn as we go...he's 11 and has picked up on the hobby a lot faster than i can keep up with...

so coming from future buyers...i'd like to see more bodies for the 1/7th DM-1 and 1/8th DM-1e...also...i know a guy who owns a revo-e that he converted to a GT on road and had to go with a shorter 2.5 chassis wheel base cos the 3.3 wheel base is too long for your protoform gt body...so perhaps u guys can look into the Traxxas Revo market and tap those guys...i'm sure they're bored of their plain jane e-revo bodies...i know i am...and i own two of them....

if u build it...we will come...

I would definitely be the first in my state to buy a Protoform Pontiac Firebird body for my VTA. I would paint it just like Jerry Titus' No. 8 Firebird ...

Do you think you may have the WGT (hopefully 2) bodies ready for the snowbirds?

I'll take three or four. I like the white with blue stripe paint scheme, but if too many people use that one then I will just invert to have blue with white stripe like this one ...

Is Dale working on a 12th oval body now that 12th is starting to take off again? I hope so the body I'm using now is OK but way to thin.
