Hey Tambok,

Not really. They look a lot taller because they are shorter. Notice how we dont have the ridges at the sides of the shell. They are not required by the rules and only add to awkward spraying.

Hopefully, the first shells will be on the Market next week. Just waiting on different grades of Lexan to arrive to get the right viscosity.

Default LEXAN

Don't forget to preheat your lexan....that by itself will remove moisture that can cause inconsistent pulls.

GOOD LUCK!

Hi Dean,

As soon as the first batch is ready I will be getting a boxful shipped into Europe. We are hoping for a price of around 15 but this depends on the Import Taxes. Dang government really kills us. lol

I will email you when they are on the way. If you are running 200mm Foam this year I will see you at the BRCA rounds. I am doing the full championship this year.

Talk soon.

Thats a shame. If you go to the BRCA website (www.brca.org), you will find a full list of clubs in your area. As far as I know the closest clubs that would run Foam GTP would be either Halifax, Wombwell or Tibshelf (all in Yorkshire). Could be wrong though.

Its not exactly the buick. We decided to base loosely on it just because of downforce problems. The Buick was too long in the nose and way to high at the rear. So we altered it dramatically to suit better.

Hey Modellor:
Is this gonna fit the GT4R? Where is Steve Muller testing the floating mounts and body at? I would really want to see it run in a fast track. How much would the body cost?

Hey Tambok,

Steve sent you an email. (RCFUN2) Get in touch with him to arrange meeting somewhere. I think he runs at KZ.

The body should be around the $20 - $25. It will fit the GT4R and every other car on the market.

Hi, everyone.

Keep those suggestions for different bodyshells coming in. They are all being given a great deal of thought.

However, at the present time we are only able to work on one shell at a time and each one needs a great deal of attention to get it perfect.

Our next shell will be the Mazda 787B which has already been started.

We will eventually build up a larger selection of shells but for the meantime please bear with us.

Thanks.
