ziggy12345 -

Ive been traveling with work ( need to fund racing)

I run an MTX3 with an RB X12T 5 port motor in the foam class.

Currently running the Kawahara LOLA shell because it gives more steering than the Yokomo shell from CML.

Put side by side the Kawahara shell has a longer and steeper nose with a shorter tail than the Yokomo shell.

It gave just the right feel to the car.

Has anyone made suggestions for a 200mm Toyota GT-One or BMW LMR V-12 body be developed? The prototype Audi and Cadillac shells would also be some good alteratives to just having the lola open and closed cockpit bodies.

JLock,

You know....... I once dealt with Modellor and Nitrodude who are supposed to be "Maximum Performance Project" or part of that company, (what ever) and all I can say about them is sure, they might be able to crank out a part or two, only in handfulls at a time by the looks of it. But trust me, and I mean trust me, any suggestions for more body styles or anything for that matter would end up being no more than just a suggestion . All I can say is, I'll never deal with these two pipe dreamers again, that's for dang sure . Suggesting any ideas is like kicking a dead horse , especially when it comes to getting anything out of MPP. Just thought you should know.

tallyrc - yes I drive a Mugen and used to a NTC3, the Loletta shell fits MUGEN, NTC3, 705 and also Kyoshos, seen them all use it. The distributor for the shell in Malaysia hold the dealership of AE stull hence, a TC3 car on display.

Well, i respect all the opinnions that people give ... but i disagree with you about this guys ... specially about Modellor ...

I dont know if this guys are just dreamers, but i know they work hard for the hobby, have a lot of experience and best of all, they are willing wo SHARE the experience with others (basically all my setup skills i received from Modellor).

Just my words about this issue ...

Back then, yes there were a few problems but you got to be honest and say I at all times made as much effort as I possibly could (being 8000miles away) to solve your problem. Yes, Nitrodude was only able to make parts in small quantities at a time due to unforeseen problems.
However, Pipe Dreamers is not the correct word. Due to the lack of time Nitrodude was able to commit due to his main job taking priority we decided to put things on hold. We decided instead to wait and we are now finishing discussions with several factories who we will be contracting to produce the products for us. Once these talks are finalised then the parts will start flowing on a regular basis.

Not at the minute. We are working on something a little bigger with another company which will come to light before Christmas. We decided against the GTP shells for the time being because looking at the market most countries are favouring TC shells and even our own open 200mm class in hte UK is possibly going to be TC shells next year.

But we will keep you informed if the situation changes.

Watch for the news

Yes. Dont get me wrong. I realise there are some die-hard clubs that are using them but in general the racing is going to towards TC shells on a global aspect with ROAR, EFRA, IFMAR etc. I dont believe this will change for many years to come. I myself am a die-hard GTP person and will always push my vote towards them.
