I like that body alot.. Hows it handle compared to the others? I'm trying to decide on which one to go with.. The Parma, or the sophia?.. I just finished the build time for electrics.

And here's my Astin Martin DB9 body at the IIC.



As far as handling...hard to say because with the Mulsane I ran double pink tires and with the DB9 I ran spec lilac tires. How much was tires and how much was body it's hard to say...but the Mulsane seemed to have more grip overall.

Are you talking about the DB9? The paint job does it no justice at all one the website I have seen a few online painted up and they look great.
What class are you running th Mulsane in? Would that be Pro10? I am still confused about what people are calling the class with the vett sophia and so on bodies....seemed to kinda die!

Got the pic fixed.

As far as where I ran the Mulsane...when we first started our WGT class our body rules were more open. I wanted more of a super car class then another TC class on a pan car chassis. Several other WGT series around the US have done similar as well in not following the normal WGT rules.

The DB9 really is a pretty body when it is all painted up and mounted. But there is a problem if your series follows the WGT rules strictly. If you cut the body at the bottom cut line then the roof will be too low according to the rules and the wing too tall. I'd suggest mounting the body without cutting the lower line or wheel wells, set it so the roof height is correct, then trim the body to the chassis level and cut out the wheel wells.
