Default Bods!!

Hey electric dudes I was at the race track this week with my nitro cars and some touring guys came up to me and asked me If make Bodies for the electric cars too ? And I said I'm Thinking about it so can you guys give me some ideas on what newbodies you would like to see? I run just nitro but I can scale down the DaHellion 1 to 190 if you like it. I like to design them a little on the wild side but I think ROAR will aprove most of them and they are all wind tunnel tested and if I can find a elec. car driver as bad as I am then that will cover the crash tests too LOL. Any way something to think about Here's the "Da Hellion 1"

If you downsized or took off the enourmous hood scoop to make it more aerodynamic/smooth than I think it'd look good for electric racing

Good looking body. Try scaling it down and give it to a few drivers to test it.

Default LOL!

Enourmous!!!! Well maybe a tad but I kind of went ballistic with this one the scoops really help keep the nitro cooler and I did a inlay for the exhaust to keep it off the tire And a few other neat fetchers but as far as aerodynamics go It can't be beat by any Stratis bodies! That car spent more time in the wind tunnel then out while I was building it and making changes! That said It was just a example and you might like this one better also pictures of the cars that you like would be very helpfull!

Default Hmmmmmmmmm!

Ok maybe I worded this wrong! I design and build car bodies for RC cars and trucks. I have been doing this for a while but just recently decided to sell them to the public. I'm sorry but I don't have any pictures of 190s because I haven't built any yet. The reason the DaHellion1 is doing so well is due to the fact that before I built it I asked what people would like to see in that class and that's what I'm trying to acomplish here! By the way the DaHellion1 is based on a Stratis.These pics. are just to show you what I can do. And I do not make exact copies of street cars . I start by taking a lot of pitchers of a real car then I alter them on the PC to add flair then I mold it and from there it goes into the wind tunnel for changes to make it the best body that I can produce for that class. To give you a idea it took me roughley 1500 hours to design and build DaHellion 1 .I'm just a one man shop but I really enjoy doing this.
