Default Protoform P37-R body

Looks a bit like a restyled stratus

Reminds me of the Nemesis more than the Stratus

Protoform pretty much had a lock on rubber tire racing with the LTC-R and LTC-R lightweight. Curious to see how this compares. Mabye this is a replacement for the R9-R as that body wasn't very popular.

from the P37 name it certainly seems like an infiniti-type but it doesn't look anything like that M37... or even a G37...

Yeah actually having it in my hands it is very simular to the Stratus 2.0.. I really liked the 2.0 on high speed wide open tracks. The one thing I noticed is that the body is shorter than the Speed 6 or LTC-R.

It probably is supposed to look somewhat like an Infinity. Like the Mazdaspeed6 body doesn't really look much like a real Mazdaspeed6. If it weren't for the stickers you would probably never guess it was supposed to be a Mazda.

probably because it's lower and has a longer wheelbase but the website says the P37 is 0.3" longer... not like that's a lot...
