And this is why everybody continues to buy from protoform


Not sure if you saw it earlier but i asked as far as the slotted wing goes which would be better to you the slotted wing or the optional high downforce asphalt wing that protoform sells

Got it Dale, ..............but when is release date for the Rubber Tire version? At RCX you suggested it would be out on 15th of the following months. It's been 2 month of eager anticipation! The waiting is Almost too much.

Thanks Dale it was worth the wait !!

Years ago Bolink was advertising that they had a wind tunnel especially made up for developing their bodies. I don't what happened with that. I was wondering if you have thought of doing the same ? It sure would be fun to have that kind of tool to develope bodies. Of course with cheap powerful computers maybe a fluid dynamics program would be a better more modern solution.

I know I'm a bit behind here, but I got to see one of these in person on saturday. I must say it is a good looking body. I will definitely pick up the rubber tire version when it is out. I was getting bored with the standard TC bodies out there and this one is very fresh.

Sorry my friend, but the R9-R will not be ready for our July 15th release deadline. A couple of weeks ago I trial fitting a test-body on a few different brands of up-to-date sedan chassis (with the 63mm dia. tires) at the Reedy Race. I then realized I had more work to do than I originally thought. It just needed a little more clearance here and there as well as a slatted wing and few other adjustments to optimize handling.


Best regards - Dale - Protoform

Looks like it'll be late
