That happens to my local racing scene as well.

What's worse, is that the entries were pulled out at the last minute, right before the closure of the participation.

We could only wait for Tamiya to launch a few more nice bodies tied to F103GT chassis kit, people will start to turn their heads over.

That's a sweet looking F103GT!

Sure looks really lightweight.

Yes we know about them, and don't forget the best looking Porsche 956 for 190mm cars:
http://www.rcmart.com/catalog/produc...ducts_id=21093

Or other GT shells in the HPI 190mm range:




plus many more
Choice is plenty, just depends on how far you want to take the rules.

And if you want to include the 200mm range then there is loads more to choose from, including these older Group 5 shells

There's this one called the ABC Hobby Response Body.

Am selling it as a package with the Type C Diffuser. Check out the picture.

Have used that Lambo Body by HPI and it didn't handle well.

Gave it away in the end.

That looks like a wedge shaped version of this Nissan R390 (PTI Racing)

I like the McAllister bodies. They a very durable and if you order more than one, they are even more reasonable in price. They have some very nice 190mm bodies also. The Sebring GTP being the newest.

I have always placed orders with McAllister over the phone. They have been in business for many years. I don't know if they ship overseas. You can email them and find out.
