I'm a bit slow answering some of your questions - when I'm nearing the end of a project I tend to stay away from my computer and other distractions.

I have no plans for and Alfa sedan right now. That's not to say it won't be added it to my to-do list at some time. Like you, I love the unique look of Alfa Romeos. They're coming back to US showrooms sometime in the next year too. Nice.

No plans right now for a 200mm LTC-R - but there will be a R9 body for 200mm gas designated the R9-G

....stratus quo - lol! I like that.

As stated, the LTC-R was too new to be legal for the Worlds. The Pf MazdaSpeed 6 was the body that filled the A-Main in Bankok.

thanks

Dale, i just want to congradulate you on your RC dominance at the previous worlds as well as many other large events and club races. No other manufacturer will hold a candle to protoform, and i can't think of any other body manufacturer that has the owner responding to everything that anybody postes in a positive manner, whethere there responses are or not.

I've been running protoform since i started on road, and have never considered any other body to run on my TC's. Good luck in the future, and long live protoform.

(p.s. in my avatar is one of the protoform alfa 2.0's from 2004 that a good friend of mine painted, and i still have it today hanging on my wall as i type. )

Dale, good looking shell, nice to see some variety. To bad about the ruling, maybe next year they'll be ready.

Any new collectors bodies in the works, 1 unpainted Cadillac left and the Aston Vanquish on my shelf needs something else beside it ?

Not really sure what that's supposed to mean. The DNA series is not being "scrapped" - as you put it. It's been a successfull body and will continue to be available.

wallstreet;
We started shipping LTC-R bodies to distributors on Nov 15th. In this current economy everyone's being extra cautious about inventory levels and spending. The pipeline will fill up eventually. As we get orders, they are shipped almost immediately.

Thanks - Dale - Protoform

Just got a few of these bodies and they look very nice in person!

Can't wait to get 'em painted up and out on the track to try them!

Great job as always Dale!

I thought it wasnt roar approved anymore? Seems like everybody runs mazda/speed 6's at my track. I wasnt knocking on the dna. I still run a dna2. I was curious why nobody runs them and will the r9 share the same fate. I only run protoform bodies on the track, for what it's worth.
