It's a Volkswagen! Yup...the real Skoda is a VW own subsidary and shares the same components as the Jetta. Heeeeheee.

I like the look of the Mazda 6 body though.

That body looks like a hybrid between a stratus and the old school GT-R body from yokomo.

Guys it's not meant as a looker.This is a RACING body.This body has been tested on a bunch of area tracks for PERFORMANCE reasons.If your looking for a LOOKER this is NOT IT nor was it ever meant to be.I think I just stepped into the mall with a bunch of women staring at a new dress.lol

It somewhat resembles an old "Andy's" stratus, Yokomo, or Trinity referance stratus. The only difference looks like the grill has a "box" on it...

Losi's Lexus was a failure, I wonder how this will fair...

Guys thats all it is.A stratus with a lil more meat in some area's for cornering and traction.
When the stratus bodies were thrown into a corner they got loose.This one is suppose to help and also more traction when cornering.

Correct me if I'm wrong...but don't the lexus and alfa bodies both come with window masks and body mount dimples?

I'd think that trim lines will have to vary with tire type (foam vs rubber) and wheelbase... and yes, wheelbase does vary from car to car...

I guess some people won't be happy until they have versions for every car for every tire, every wheelbase, and every ride hight...

The Losi bodies come with window masks, and a full sticker sheet, dimples for body posts on the Losi Sedan, and wing mounting hardware.

These ARE racing bodies, YOU the racer, have to do everything to your liking. It has no lines to cut out wheels or the height of the body, because the racer should be the one to cut out the body to THEIR OWN liking. My personal experiances with PF bodies on my TC3 have not been great, the lines are marked a little too long for the wheelbase on my car, and I end up with large rear wheel holes.
