Okay I'm looking at Skoda's website, so what the hell model body is this supposed to be? It doesn't remotely look like anything in their showroom! I guess if I had an old Stratus body mold that's been sitting and collecting dust I'd tweak it a little make a new product out of it. I think that's a cheap shot on Losi's part to try and squeeze out more money from their loyal fans. I'm a Losi fan but I ain't falling for it.

Losi's Lexus was a failure, I wonder how this will fair...
The body is a failure? For what application? Like any r/c item - it has its application and works with the correct setup.

That Losi body has nothing to do with any Skoda cars. I drive one similar like this


The car is based on the VW/Audi technology and parts, so you can forget those bad jokes.

Man you guys are brutal on this Skoda body....just to let you know Spashett, Lemiuex and Kinwald all ran this body at the recent Indoor Champs. Our goal with this body was to have a body that has less grip than the Alfa. At times the Alfa has too much grip on carpet tracks so that is why we developed the Skoda. We found that this body worked very well and offered more steering than the PF 1427 stratus and had a great balance. The body will also come with window mask, sticker sheet(with something totally new on it), and dimples for all TL cars.

Even the Shelf, er, Street Weapon? Sorry, Todd, couldn't help myself. OK, I could, just chose not to.

Why do the new Skoda's come with long tip dual exhaust pipes?
So you can get SOME use out of it as a wheelbarrow

it doesnt look like a real Skoda? maybe not... but do any of the Alfa bodies remotely resemble the real car either? or a stratus? puhleeze.... im just tired of seeing the exact same body on every car on the track. i currently run an Impreza WRC on my touring car... drives just fine. or maybe thats my new secret weapon...
