Default This will probley get me in trouble

Guys when I think of a race car Dodge Stratis isn't even close. A real Dodge Stratis is a piece of crap 4 door that old ladies drive to the liquor stores after church That is why my self and other body makers try to manipulate them so they look like a race car and the funny thing is all this talk about it being the best handeling body is wrong I have proved that in my tunnel . I was asked to do a VW and as hard as I tryed I just coulden't do it . Real race cars will fly by you at 150, 200 even more A Dodge Stratis will fly by you at a wopping speed of 60 if it has a good tail wind

Just keep doing what you're doing-make something that works and doesn't look like a gay-ass "tuner" car.

Nope, I agree with you Hellion. I really dont like the stratus bodies. The thing that gets me is that the bodies out there, such as the Stratus 3.0, Ride TSX, and Tamiya B4, dont really look much like the cars they are named for. I guess Im kind of bummed because all of the bodies are starting to look the same and bear no real resemblance to any kind of car. In fact, now that I think about it, these "sedans" are beginning to look more like the old IMSA Group C racers. The fronts are getting sleeker, the greenhouse is getting more tear-drop shaped, and the rear deck is getting longer. If that is the way the hobby wants to go, lets start racing sports bodies instead of sedans. How about a couple of bodies based on the Bentley Speed 8 or the Toyota GT-One, Hellion?

Default 1/12

No it's a 1/10 Pan car (235 MM) for some reason the bigger body makers stoped making bodies for them so they asked me to help them and it seamed it took me for ever to design some that would work but I finally got the shape I needed so just a little more testing and they will go in production and I am going to scale them down to 1/12 bodies too but I have to come up with a truck first. The D/H-1 (200 MM) is the fastest Nitro sedan body on the market to date and I have had a hard time trying to top it . It's not ROAR approved and I don't think they would because of the scoops. I know that's pretty bold of me to say but it's true The D/H 2 & 3 190MM are pretty new and so far they are doing well also

I'd like to see a Pontiac GTO/Holden Monaro. These cars seem to have good smooth lines. Might make a nice body. Also maybe a buick Lacross

Hellion, take a look at www.trans-amseries.com I've always wondered why more Trans Am style cars aren't reproduced. I'm especially fond of the Jag XKR. Sweet lines.

Good news: McAllister Racing do it.

And for the guy who wanted a Corrado, I know a guy here in the UK who is doing them in 190mm.

Hellion: If you need a tester here in the UK, just ask.
