Default Team Atlas new bodies

They called PONT-GR and GX bodies, the difference just seems GX is better for high grip surfaces.
If you ask me, Do i like their shape. I could tell you they are not the best looking bodies i have seen since now.

Why not just run doorstop bodies? Those are outlandish

Woah mama....

Are you sure they didn't leave the mold out in the sun and it started to melt or something?

At least Atlas are consistent, each bodyshell they bring out is more hideous and repulsive than its predecessor...

I like slammed "thingie" bodies, but I am an old slot car guy.

My Father had one on his Xray for the Nats. They don't look to bad once painted up. They handle far better than they look.

Wow, looks well at the body, but it is so high and that below part of bumper should be cut, i guess.
Instead it will scratch on the floor if shock droops.
As i saw, the body rules in Australia should be similar as in asia continental, without homologation since is 4 doors, isn't it?
