If repfreshing it doesn't work, right click on it and go to properties. Copy the URL you see there and put it in the URL bar.

Darkside- parma makes them, but you'll need an airbrush. They are really cool paints, water based, so if you make a mistake you can wash it right off!

sorry about the dead link guys

the body, basicly is a new proline body. Its a prototype shell
and in order to see it you must go through the proline website and look under product or new products.

Its a body of a TVR Speed 6......I dont think it will be a good body the wing is way to tall along with the rear decklid. Thats why the stratus and the vaxuhal and now the s60 are soo good on the track the rear decklid is low to the ground which helps alot in aero dynamics of the car.

is HPI's lamborghini diablo bodyshell a direct fit for the TC3? i was looking at its photo and its front end looks too low. it might hit the front shock tower and i dont want to raise the body just to clear the shocktower. i plan to use this bodyshell for display only so it should have a groud-scraping look. also, will HPI's interior set fit that body? thanks for any info !

Good body or bad body, if I like it, I'll run it. And that TVR Speed 6 is definitely a good body!

I'm not even going to start up the whole "body performance" thing again, but needless to say, I'm of the school of thought that says "run any body that looks good."

So for all you body scientist out there , where does the new 2001 Honda Civic body rank amoung the "good" or "not good" bodies?

Try www.speedtechrc.com -he has them really cheap!

THe reason I currently have a volvo S60 is that it looks way better than the stratus, but performs almost as well.

I thought the S60 was very similar to the stratus in performance, but with a little more rear traction.

I ordered a Hot Bodies stratus yesterday. Anyone run this body?

Yokomo fan: I don't have much knowledge of the TVRs, just from Gran Turismo2 and three.

No body has answered my question yet. Any body know where the new Protoform 2001 Honda Civic body fits in as far as "good" or "not good".

It certainly looks like it would perform well.

Darkside- serious racers won't be buying that cause it's illegal. Rules say 4 door only, and that's two.

Speedo: well okay, okay.

Well for the 98% of us who will never compete in a actual sanctioned race, what is its handling like?

The 300M is also not legal, but Protoform has enjoyed brisk sales of the body.
