Dale -

First off, I appreciate all of the time you have spent on these bodies over the years, and those which make the racing better for all of us!

Second, while quite a bit off topic, am I correct in saying you have a son named Eric? Funny coincidence if this is correct.

Foam specific bodies have less overall down force than rubber bodies.

Yes, I understand that too. I just had a thought. I was just wondering if anyone had tried it, that's all.

Nevermind, I'll move on


Thanks, Ron

Pretty interesting. Marc Rheinard also ran one at the ETS Race about a week ago. Things could be changing....

Just received my LTC-R body last week. I'm retiring my Mazda 6 body and expecting good things from this new body.

Wow that's a great paint job. One thing that I noticed is that it looks like the round Protoform sticker on the rear quarter looks like it's upside down? Otherwise I think it looks great.

Here's some photos of an LTC-R that I painted for a friend who runs at www.RCARIndy.com. I really like the looks of this body better than the other PF's. Don't know why, it just flows better to me. The wing seems a bit apbrupt, but form follows function as they say, so that's not a complaint. Just an observation. And, as you can see, the wing was not mounted on this one yet. He wanted to do that himself.

This one I just finished Saturday. It has not got a home yet. The faux carbon fiber turned out well on the hood. A lot of our track's 17.5 racers are running LTC-R's now.

Thanks, I just thought the guy who designed it might want to see a few "versions" of his creation. That's why I posted them.
