Dale that looks sick. I have a question... have you guys been outsourcing the manufacturing of the bodies? I have started to notice more and more folds in the bodies and dents and stuff when a few years ago I don't remember any of that. The bodies are still great just quality has dropped significantly.

Steve I'm not Dale but from what I can tell things like creeses and folds seem to happen in shipping. When I get bodies directly from Protoform (JConcepts and Parma also) they rarely have a flaw. I see it muchmore when I get bodies from customers or order them from my LHS.

They get packed and shipped at Protoform sent to a distributor unpacked and stored (and probablt stacked) .Then repacked sometimes with other heavy products in the same box and sent to a shop ,and once again you might repete the same process to have it shipped to you.

Also this body looks great can't wait to get mine

As soon as I see them in my LHS I will be snagging a couple of them. I like the looks of this body, she looks sleek.

Good things come to those who wait!

I like the body line squared off above the rear wheel well. I saw a couple today at my LHS. Nice!

Hi Dale

Looks like another fantastic body - great work!!

Quick couple of questions - how does this shell handle compared to (say) the Mazda 6 and the MazdaSpeed 6 ?? And how do you anticipate it will work on both carpet (obviously with rubber tires) and on asphalt tracks?

Many thanks, looking forward to trying one out as soon as I can grab one!!

Oli
