Modellor:
Is there a website where I can check out the bodies you are selling and making? And also price list including shipping here in California. Thanks dude.

No website yet. When the first body is formed we will get pictures available on this forum. As for shipping prices in Cali - not 100% sure. I am only dealing with sales on this side of the big pond. You will need to talk to 'Nitrodude' about that. (One of his prototype shells is posted in the Yokomo Thread here though).

Id like to see Trans-Am type bodies (the Jaguar XKR, the Panoz Esperante, the Ford Mustang Cobra, and the Corvette C5R)

Very true but the main problem with some of these cars are the extremely low sidepods. This makes it impossible to produce a scale looking model version. But the idea is nice for hybrid style lola cars.

It would really be cool if the bodies really work in R/C Racing too and not only for eye candy......just my 2 cents.

True. I'll be doing my best to ensure that any bodies produced will work.

Hey you ever thought of doing a Porsche 962, or the old Toyota from the early to mid 90s?

Yeah, we are doing both of these. The Toyota 787B is currently being drawn up using Rhino3D. Hopefully it will be released just after Christmas. The working mould only takes about days after the design is complete.

The biggest problem I see with the newest bodies racing, is that the noses don't allow enough room for our cars suspension arms....the just have the center section and the the sidepods, with their suspension arms running between, this won't work.

Modellor, are you just making 200mm bodies? Or will 235mm's br available, too? I'm interested.

We have discussed doing 235mm and 1:8th scale and possibly 200mm TC shells but these won't be for some time. We are concentrating mainly on the 200mm GTP class to try and get it the recognition it deserves.

I will be uploading a screenshot of our bodyshell at some stage today. It is taken from the CAD package at the 90% finished mark. The mould is being started today and pictures of the mould and finished shell should be available by next Friday.

Okay here it is. This screenshot is only 90% complete. The wing side dams still have to be added.
