Lightbulb New Release: PROTOform Mazda6 GX

Hey Racers,

Our new 190mm Touring Car body is finally ready, the Mazda6 GX.

It's officially licensed, made in the U.S.A., and fast on the track. Marc Rheinard used a GX to win the Bangkok Int'l RC Championship at Surikarn's massive new outdoor track. Marc was raving about the body's performance, saying it had awesome overall grip, tons of steering but also a very stable rear end.

Jilles Groskamp also tested in Bangkok and said it was on pace right away, having the steering and response of the LTC-R, with the stability of the Mazdaspeed6.

Paul Lemieux tested on carpet at his home track, and said it eliminates the need to mount your body so far forward since it has the right amount of steering built right in. He recommend mounting it centered with the Pro-TC high-downforce wing. "Gives a ton of grip, especially in mid-speed infield sections.”

Very excited to give this body a try!

Just so you know Eric, your link is missing a 'w'.

I'm excited about this big time. The speed 6 has been my go to for some time so my expectations are through the roof. I'll be slapping one of these on the t4 pronto upon release!
