Wow, 1500 hours! That is like 150, ten hour days. Or five months, nonstop, without taking any weekends off. How much time was spent field testing?

Default say what????

O.M.G A V.W. Body? Is this what you really want? I have no Idea of what it looks like.Does any one have pictures of it. I really haven't thought of a V.W. as a race car but I said the same thing abought the Dodge Stratis. If you are serious abought this I will go down to the V.W.dealer and take pics. of it . If I do this one I'm assuming that you would want it a 190mm and ROAR legal Is this correct?

Also read here: http://www.fact-index.com/v/vw/vw_corrado.html

The Corrado had some innovative motor design, like a G-charger. Some of the design ideas is used by Porshe and Bugatti...

The Corrado seemed to be the best handling front wheel drive car around '90.

190 mm is what I like. Personally, I dont care about ROAR, but others will probably...

It's kind of cool but I have to tell you if I did one it would look more like the first pic (always tunning) Tell you what if you can get ten members to pm me to build it I will.Fair enough?

Default USA !

I don't think I have ever seen a real one In the states could someone send me some more pics please? I think someone asked me to do one of these in the Nitro class. It doesn't look very aerodynamic but you never know I'll do a mock up and see how it does in the wind tunnel [email protected]

I like the looks of the vw but i would like the lines to be smoothed out some so it would be more aerodynamic, and so it would look slightly better.

G'day Danny, just want to let you know that I am amazed by how well the DH/2 handles, and just an example a guy at my track (YOKE 1 on rctech) gained a lap from going to the DH/2 from a protoform Mazda 6. We are about to start racing the winter series here , so I will let you know how we go, 3 of us run them here at the moment & this will be the first time we will get to run them for an entire series. we ran them for the last round of our summer series and they are indeed fast.

Cheers,
~Jack

Dude, you opened a Pandora's Box here. lol. Just kidding. Anyway, I have been toying with the idea of making my own bodies because Im not terribly statisfied with what is out there. I do mostly racing, but I would love to have more variety. Electric sedan racing is basically Status vs. Mazda6. Ok, maybe a few TSXs in there too. Anyway, here is what I would really like to see.....

How about some Aussie V8 Supercars?

http://www.v8supercar.com.au/photoga...d=15015&pnum=2

http://www.v8supercar.com.au/photoga...d=15016&pnum=2

http://www.v8supercar.com.au/photoga...d=15013&pnum=2

http://www.v8supercar.com.au/photoga...d=15002&pnum=3

How about some DTM cars?

Opel Vectra:
http://www.dtm.de/fahrzeug.en.php?id=7

Audi A4 (this is sweet):
http://www.dtm.de/fahrzeug.en.php?id=8

AMG-Mercedes C-Class:
http://www.dtm.de/fahrzeug.en.php?id=9

Then, of course, there are the FIA WTCC cars, the ALMS GT and GTS rides, and the LMP 900 and 675s. Oh, and the Speed World Challenge GT and Touring cars. I can just keep going..... lol

Dude, check out some *frewer* bodies. they make a BA falcon V8 supercars, and a VX & VY holden V8 supercars. They look very real, but they ain't gonna handle as well as a DaHellion

personly I love the look of the mazda 6 , but the DH/2 out performs it big time & it looks mean
