You mean the same Pro10 class that drew more entries than the brushless TC class at the 2004 ROAR OnRoad Nats. and only 5 fewer than 1/12th? Just because your local track doesn't run it doesn't mean it's dead. Even 1/12th guys like DPowell of Quad12 fame can see the intrest in a class that is showing a rebirth in many locales.

Those of us that do run the class buy so many of the Hot Bodies Toyotas from Tower Hobbies that we can clear out a fresh shipment in an afternoon when they get those in.

Would an updated Pro10 body, especially a 1/10th version of something like this (I think it looks good) outsell a hot new TC or 1/12th body style - no, of course not. Is there enough demand to make someone bold enough to try some $$$ - yes, there sure is.

Nice looking body its alwayse good to see a great company like CRC expanding.
I think it looks alot like the real thing. As much as any other 12th scale body. Limitations on how a RC body is manufactured makes it impossible to exactly duplicate the rear wings and the front air dams. Great Job CRC

Heres a pic of the real thing.

Raving - Monkey

The CRC is BRCA legal as far as I know.

Without trying to open a can of worms, you cannot make a 12th shell look realistic because of the shape of the back end. 12th shells have to slope upwards to create downforce. So you have to judge the realism by the front of the body.

This is why the Parma Speed 8 failed, the Ascari, and the new P/F Speed 12.

Correct Liam

The shell is legal for the BRCA 1/12th season when you look at the pics of the car and look at the shell it is a realistic representation and as a area rep for the 1/12th section I was at the meeting when we decided that the shell would be legal for this season which you know starts this weekend.
i have just spoke to AMC and he will be placeing an order after this weekends National so he can get them in in time for the Crewe National.

Hey All,
Just got word from ROAR that the body has been approved. You can see it on their approved body page here - http://www.roarracing.com/products/sbody.htm
