Lightbulb "NEW" PROTOform R9-F Body

I'm finally able to post some better photo's of the Protoform R9-F body. There's a few more angles here: http://www.pro-lineracing.com/p-572-r9-f.aspx

Have a great weekend! - Dale Epp - Protoform

i have one of those sitting here waiting to be mounted. it looks like you can really slam it low due to the dents in the hood for the shock towers.

will this body become roar legal?

It already meets the GBS specs, so I'm guessing it's ROAR legal too. Maybe Dale can help with that.
I've been running the body and love it. Very stable w/steering to boot.

In the above pics though, what's the cutouts in the wing for?

I wonder if the G35 tail light decals are included. Or perhaps the brake disc.

Guess I got a little different taste than some people. Cause that isn't exactly what I would describe as good looking.

Its not butt ugly or anything...and compared to some of these other bodies out, its certainly not bad, but i wouldn't go so far as to say it looks "good".

I think its neat looking and futuristic. Its not really my idea of beautiful, but it looks better than a stratus.

I'm assuming like the DNA series the foam version will have less downforce than the rubber. I think the DNA2 also had a little bigger fenders to allow for the larger rubber tires.
