HANDS DOWN, the most different looking body in years, even if it doesn't handle the best , the looks will make up for it

It's so beautiful....

Ferrari and Porsche need to hire that designer!!!! A show stopper!!!

Ooohh boy, how I love european cars....

Even if the body handles well, that thing is awful!!!

Yes that also was my impression it looks alot like the Chevron GT350. But for me the GT350 looks much better.

Maybe Protoform is changing the bodyshell design now and the next one looks like a Ride.

So how do these things handle? My local track just got the CTS and the Nemesis in and it's a toss-up between the two. I'm leaning towards the CTS...

Last race I attended the winner of the 19 turn Class and Tq of Mod ran this body all day.He said it was stuck.His car looked awsome.Worth trying once. BTW,you canyt go wrong with the nemesis either.

so far we have...

Mazda6
Alfa Romeo
Stratus
G350GT
CTS
Subaru Legacy (coming soon)

now.. if mr steve wang can only import those sweet looking Ride bodies.. the TSX looks awesome!

our races can have luxury cars now! CTS vs G35 vs TSX!
