I can't wait to get a few and paint em up for the Vegas warmup at CEFX.

Looks cool!

The fish mouth grill resembles the new Audi's, rear looks like the new Lexus IS.

ive got to say it looks really ugly. honestly no redeeming features about it. i like the angled looks of most japanese touring bodies. the soft curves that protoform use look non descript sometimes.

Where is the announcement for the rule change? Just curious. Kind of a strange reversal, and opposite to IFMAR/BRCA/EFRA/etc. rules. The 2006 ROAR rules (6.1.1, 6.1.17.2.1) still state that TC bodies must resemble those that have run in full-size TC racing.

Oh, goodie! Another 'touring car' body. I use the word touring car in the loosest possible way, as this (and many others, not just PF's) looks hardly anything like a real touring car. Look at BTCC, WTCC, DTM, how many of the front runners are reproduced in RC form?

BTCC:
MG (PF do it, but its basically the same car for the past 4 years)
Honda Integra (Tamiya, HPI)
SEAT (no-one)

WTCC
BMW 320 (nobody I think, apart from CEN)
Alfa 156 (PF and Slipstream, but neither look nothing like the real one)
SEAT (again, no-one)
Chevy Lacetti (nope, no-one for this one either!)

DTM
Audi (Tamiya and Carson do DTM Based ones, Slipstream does the RS4 road car)
Merc (Tamiya and Carson again, but on-one else).

Even an ASCV8 Holden or Falcon would be awesome.

---------------------

Take the headlights and grilles off just about any body, take it to Joe Public, someone who isn't in to RC, and I bet they won't be able to tell what it is.

The problem is, bodies are designed to work, not look good, and we buy the 'workers'. As long as we buy them, the companies will make them.

Good Luck with this one Dale, I'm sure it'll sell by the bucket load.

These are easily available in Australia, and there are some clubs that only run these as a control body - painted up like the V8 supercars.
