Default Audi R8 LMS 200mm body

Hi, For the past few months I have been searching for an Audi R8 200mm body
and I found one at TSAIS RC products. I have completed the fitting and the
initial painting and some decals. I am waiting for additional WRT decals from
Hong Kong and I will post another set of photos one it is completed. The only
drawback is that I had to fabricate a front splitter as the body does not have one. The other R8 body available is the Tamiya but it is 190mm and does not fit
my Kyosho chassis. Regards

Hi, Thanks for your comments. The car in the background is a Speed Passion
LM-1 body on a widened F104 F1 chassis. Body is sold by Speed Power.com.

Would it fit a F103 GT chassis? What was required to widen it? I'm a big scale nut and that body is pretty sweet.

Hi You can buy the body kit at Speed Power.com or F1paint lab. I will fit a
103gt and I think you do not have to widen it as it is the widest of the F1 chassis. Since I had a tamiya F104 sitting around I installed a Rsector 200mm
kit and added the GT bumper. Attached photo of my chassis. Regards
Norman.
PS there is a thread on these called Speed Passion LM-1.
