I just ran my car last weekend with the Parma Aston Martin for the first time. It worked really well on the aspalt track we ran on. Very neutral and planted, plenty of steering. I need to run it back to back with the Sophia I was running to be sure, but I think I prefer the Aston

Look for the new version, but the original rules show 8 different bodies. If you have any questions, look up GT, GT1 racing for the real cars, then check the HPI website for 200 mm bodies. Any real race cars that have 1/10 bodies that look like the racer and not a cartoon version of the car should be acceptable. Check the Rules here!

Check out the Parma DB9 GT (Aston Martin) it is a great body.

We've tried the PF Corvette C6 and Sophia. For both indoors and outdoors, the C6 is the one to have. The Sophia is poor, being very wooly throughout the turn, whereas the C6 is crisp and easy to drive.

As for the Parma DB9 - what an awful shell! It looks like an elephant sat on it! Friends have run the Kyosho DB9, and that works well. HTH

I switched from the HPI NSX to the PF Corvette and went a lap faster, it feels so solid on the rear end.
Have never been able to find the Kyosho Aston Martin but would love to try one.
As for that parma thing, it looks like nothing and should not be allowed, some UK GT racers are wanting it barred from the approval list.
