It would work if you can take 15-20mm out of the wheelbase. It is made for touring car chassis so a 255-260mm wheelbase. For a 2wd chassis get hold of an F103.

I'm trying to work up some detail decals for this body - and would be interested to know if/who else runs this shell.

Ok I might just change my opinion on that DTP body...initially it didn't look right but with paint on it it is starting to look good. I'd like to see how it looks mounted on a WGT chassis. Nice work on the decals.

I sat this body (upside down) on my WGT chassis - it's tight w/o trimming or tucking the wheels in just a smidge, but I think it would be fine.

It still looks kinda naked, but it looks a whole lot better than some of the others ones I've seen painted.

I might play with a set of decals for the windows, not sure yet...as they take up a lot of sq inches, so they get pricey in a hurry, plus they are such a pain to install.

Thanks for the compliment on the decals. I don't know if anyone runs this body on anything, but I've been having a kick in the butt learning how to create, size and perfect the art work, and what I need from a print shop. (It's cheaper than PAYING for graphics school)

Joe,
I want to do the "Visit Florida" Corvette DP. Can you help with the "Visit Florida" decals?

Interesting... can't find any more info about it... I assume its an enlarged version of the RM-01 chassis

The wheel well markings looked like in the pics it was made for a TC sized wheel so I am concerned with a pan car wheel of smaller diameter it might not look right. What chassis are you going to put it on?

As I see it we've got both RCGT and WGT both running GT bodies. It's duplicate efforts. I think DTP would be a much better class for 200mm pan cars. Plus it would be easier for manufacturers to make bodies because the real ones all have the same height, width, and wheel base dimensions no matter which chassis it is. Not like current RCGT and WGT cars where your trying to cram bodies of 3 or 4 different sized real cars on to chassis that all are the same size.

Hi All,
Quick question. Can someone list the available 200mm Grp C bodies available ??
I've looked and don't see much of anything available.
Are 235mm Grp C (pro10) bodies much more available ?? It seems to be.
I'm asking because we're looking at starting a LM class. Many of us have WGT cars from CRC ,Corally and Xray. 200mm bodies would be best but we have the ability to get 235mm conversion parts. And yes...scale appearence is important.
Thanks very much.

I highly recommend this RJ Speed Porsche 962 (#RJS 1052):

It seems I was the victim of a practical joke: there is no new Tamiya Porsche 962C. It's just a Photoshop trickster playing games with me. Oh we'll, no harm done as I didn't see too much interest on this forum thread anyway.

I think that it is "new", in that it hasn't been built, but it is an "old" kit.

Speed Passion announced several (5) new bodies for their next pan car, LMP type bodies The one already shown looks great (looks to be the last Le Mans winner but can't be named as it's not a licensed product).
