Where DO you get that body from?
I would love to get hold of a 4-door orginal (GC8) WRX shell - as opposed to the Tamiya WRC/22B style ones...

HPI.....They said its comming soon, but its taking too long.

I hope it comes out exactly like its pictured, I mean how the rear wing mount is totally redesigned. It'll have more downforce in the rear due to how high it sits.

OK cool
Would be great if it does go into production, and even better if it is competitive with the stratus/mazda6/alfa etc

I ran a CTS today. I will not run any other body now. I found the CTS to have excellent downforce both in the front and in the rear. It is more neutral than a Mazda 6 or a Alfa 2.0 . It mounts very low. I had it touching the top of my front tower on my TC3. It looked low, sleek, and mean going down the backstraight at my track. BTW, Protoform is now offering a 200mm version of the CTS.

The body has so many screw-ups it's not funny. I will only be using liquid mask from now on. Here's a pic anyway.

I've had my fair share of screw-ups with masking tape.

BTW: Those Proline stickers are there to cover up some paint bleed-through right? Just take them off, People will notice "Desperate Sticker Placement" more than a spotch in the paint...

That thing looks racy though....The retro racer scheme on a new body looks good.

The Black Kat - At least once it's moving you won't be able to see all the paint bleeds and the sloppy decal placement.
