Default 1/12 GT bodies

[B][/BTrying to find out if Andy's is making any 1/12th Gt bodies?Running a new class down here in Florida with just GT bodies and 21.5 motor. Tired of seeing just one body PF12. Would like to see other bodies (quaiity ) avaiable.

In the U.K. we get quite a few. The best by far is this

http://www.zen-racing.co.uk/catalog/product_info.php/zen-racing-phat-bodies-gtm-gt12-p-2498

More steering, better high speed stability and more durable than anything else.

Look for Kamtec bodies. Those are what are used at The Gate. Several models.

I'm pretty sure Zen will deliver. I can't overstate how much better they are than anything else. Everyone ran Kamtec Ascari before the Zen came out.

I like that Capri body. Some of those need to be added to the approved bodies list.

Thanks for the help. The Blitz P1 and the PF 12 look to much alike. We can use any GT body.Wish PF would make the C7 vette. So far I'm leaning to the Delta bodies.

No it's not any body.

We are following BRCA rules for this class, Bill, that is on the rules on the forum I put.

Delta bodies aren't approved to run this class.

if anyone wants to check out this class come to my Facebook page

https://www.facebook.com/groups/148391312353349/

if anyone wants to check out the the new class I formed called "12th scale GT racing" It's really fun and competitive class.

BRCA GT12 Technical Rules V2.0 – 24/08/2016
The following Appendices form part of the Rules above
Appendix 1 – Body Shells
Only GT body shells are allowed. At the time of submission for homologation, the full sized
car upon
which the body shell is based must have been raced in an FIA GT championship within the
previous 3
years. All shells must be a reasonable representation of the full sized car as judged by the
GT Section
Committee. The final decisions on including bodies in the approved list rests with the GT
Section
Committee. Manufacturers are recommended to contact the 1/12 Section GT12
Representative to
confirm if any specific car is permitted. (Intent – that LMP cars and those designed
specifically for racing
(eg Saleen) are not allowed).
As part of the homologation process, the manufacturer’s part number must be clearly
marked in the
lower corner of the windscreen area.
The following is the list of approved bodies for the GT12 class:
Kamtec
Kamtec Lotus GT1 (Kamtec part no. GT01)
Kamtec Ascari GT3 (Kamtec part no. GT02)
Kamtec Aston Martin (Kamtec part no. GT03)
Kamtec Type F (Kamtec part no. GT04)
Kamtec Porsche GT3 (Kamtec part no. GT05)
Mardave
Mardave Lotus GT1 (Mardave part no. V140)
Mardave Ascari GT3 (Mardave part no. V151)
Mardave Aston Martin (Mardave part no. V160)
Mardave GT2 (Mardave part no. V131)
Mardave Porsche (Mardave part no. V113)
Mardave Ginetta (Mardave part no. V161)
Penguin Custom Bodyshells
Lambo GT12 (part number PEN01)
Protoform
Protoform PF-M12 (Protoform part no. #1613-30)
Screwz4RC
Audi R8 (part number G903)

in addition the bodies on this Zen page are allowed.

The Blitz is too wide for BRCA rules.

Thanks but I want someone that distributes in the USA I'm not going to pay that much for shipping one body. So far it's Delta, PF and OldRC, and Blue Groove.Don't know if Andy's is remaking there older bodies yet?
