I have a Tamiya Red Bull Audi DTM that looks really great but handles
like crap! Now it's just on display in my basement.
Been very happy with Mazda 6 and DNA 2 over the years, can't wait
to get my hands on this long awaited R9-F Rubber version body!
Keep up the good work Dale!

Just so you know the "F" stands for Foam. You'll want the "R9-R".

I finally got to run this body for the first time Friday night, and I have to say I am very impressed! Naturally I had to make a couple of changes to setup to get it dialed in 100% but when I did man was this thing awesome! Thanks Dale!

In my opinion, the R9-F works every bit as well as the Speedsix on my rubber XRay-007 on carpet. I can't stand the DNA 1/2 because they feel dead and non-responsive. If the 9-F does this well the 9-R should be excellent!

I've got an unpainted one for my TC5, any ideas on a nice colour scheme? Bear in mind this will be my first ever paint-job! Thought about a simple black but it would be boring.

Any color but black. It's hard to see on the track.

Any bright colors. Figure this body is going to be a practice body and get a second good body for race day.

I already have a DNA 2 for race day so yes this will be a practise body. Ok so blacks a bad idea. I have an airbrush upstairs that I have never used, might buy some gas and paint and give it a go.
