It's been a long while sir! Was excited to see the LTC-R I painted for you years ago was still the go-to body of choice!

I haven't painted in years, but working on the Type-S and the MS7 as we speak!

Here is a sneak peak. I will post when I am all done!

Hello Luke;

Although these 2 bodies are ROAR and EFRA approved already, the organizers of the ETS have a rule about not allowing a body to be eligible "until it's been in (european) hobby shops for 3 weeks"

I don't believe that this scenario has happened yet, so there's a good possibility it will not be allowed.

As a result we don't have the "home court" advantage that some of the other overseas body companies have. Dealers and distributors sometimes wait a while to place an order, in order to fill an entire shipping carton with misc other parts. Then when they are shipped, they are often sent by the most economical method, which is also the slowest. The inherent problem is that 1/10th (and especially 1/8th) race bodies are very bulky compared to other rc car components, and unfortunately that equals +$

It's a little frustrating at times.

Best regards - Dale - Protoform

Ahh I wondered what their rules on bodyshells homologation were, thanks. Do you know when the Type S and MS7 are going to be available in the UK?
