Hi Alfonso,
I was GTR78 in RCTouring : )
Sorry to say still cann't get the local Sanwa experts to unlock the ABS in the M8 : (
Well regarding ur bodyshell question, I have no objection to 2 door coupe shells as long as they are NOT representations of GT proto-type style cars.

I think any mass produced car that makes performance sacrifices in the name of passenger-carrying and practicality would suffice as a touring car.

Another quick question, how do the various Stratus bodies (HPI, Andy's, Protoform, Frewer, etc) compare to each other?

I think any body should be legal just as long as it hasbeen, or is being used in racing. I don't like the Low Profile bodies, i would rather see Sedan/Coupe bodies.

TSR6, the only boddies used in racing are sedan boddies so nothing would change. Well unless your talking about 1/8 gas. I agree that any sedan or coupe boddie should be allowed. The body also has to be a street legal boddie for "real" cars.

Yeah, but it would open it up a little bit. Bodies like the Mustang, Camaro and more would be "legal" for larger events.

Christian Abt, runs an Audi TT in the German DTM... If this car is racing a touring series, why hells I cannot run them in my 'touring series'? it's a street car, not a GT.

Of course I'll think that bodies like the Porsche GT1 and Mercedes CLK-GTR should be banned of using in touring series (yes, are a 2 door bodies, but are GT's).

GT boddies like these two are used in full scale road course racing, while touring car boddies are regular street boddies.

similar but the fist one is an actual racing bodie that porshce useds for the GT1 class of racing, right down to the paint job.\
The ones that they use in 1/12 are "made up" boddies like they use in 1/8 racing. The bare no resemblance to any full scale racing boddie out there. They are designed purely for performance. same with slot car boddies.
