Thanks for the suggestions Dale. My McLaren body is getting pretty beat up and I would not mind replacing it but of course with something at least as aerodynamic or preferably more.

I know the worlds fastest 4s car goes 158 mph with a Protoform 1505-30 body so I was hoping maybe this new ATS-VR could possibly be as good since I think it looks much sexier.

I wouldnt mind trying out a Mulsanne body. It looks awesome!

We're not sure the rights will be granted - or that the terms will be affordable for us. But, we're working
on it and hoping

Licensing is definitely a bugger. (unless you live in Arizona)

Dale - Are you going to release a "Mosport" edition ?

Gorgeous body. You hit a home run on this one.

Very good job on that one. For once in a long time, I don't go meh while looking at a new body release.

Thanks for listening to your customers we requested the Cadillac and you delivered a stunning GT car.
I put my order in at my LHS I hope to try it out very soon , the Cadillac body should be super competitive,

BTW - I just wanted to mention that Eric and I appreciate the kind words from so many of you. We're glad so many of you like the Protoform ATS-VR body.

It was a ton of work - yet kinda fun at the same time. I was brought up in a home where General Motors was "the only" brand of car to own.
I'm glad to see GM clawing it's way back into the limelight after all their trouble in 2009.

Best regards - Dale Epp - Protoform

I'm so excited for a new Cadillac! Got 2 on order already, I grew up in Michigan and have always been and will be a huge Cadillac fan.

Quick question though, is the trunk lid smooth, or are the wing mounts moulded into the body? I was hoping to run an aftermarket wing or no wing at all but I haven't seen any pictures of one unpainted yet.

The trunk only has 2 slightly raised flat platforms for our add-on wing mounts, so you are free to run whatever wing you'd like, or no wing at all.

Mine will be here on Thursday and I will be running it on my T4 at The Gate in USGT on Saturday. Thanks Dale and Eric for listening to the racers. USGT is one of the most competitive classes we run and one of the most fun. I'll bet we see a lot of the new Cadillac bodies at The USVTA/USGT Summer Slam at The Gate next month. Once again thanks for listening.

His other 190mm body the P10 fits my WGT car (CRC) and I know it fits a BMI. Have a Caddy on order to see if it fits like the P10.
