Default New 200mm GTP/Lola bodyshells

I have been looking into producing new style GTP/Lola bodies and in particular one based on the Buick Kudzu. Leave your opinions here whether you would welcome new styles and also if you would like to see any particular body style. These bodies will all be produced using GE Lexan and will be priced at around $15 - $20.

Also available in Europe.

Looks

Any new style would be refreshing, Something that you would see in Le Mans or 24hr Daytona

I'd love to see a Panoz prototype shell. Only problem is that as it is front engined you wouldn't be able to have the stupid rear wing that these shells have.

What about a Cadillac though?

True, but with shells like the Panoz we would offer them with true wings held on as per TC shells.

Lucky for you Patelladragger. The Mazda 767B is one of the bodies we are planning next along with the Nissan GTP. You still got your Yok or just the Kyoshos. I am currently working on a Carbon Fibre chassis for the GT4 and a new rear wishbone set to alter the geometry more.

woa Modellor! Count me in then! I'd take that mazda and the nissan. I've been wanting to do a replica of the 91 lemans winner for a while now!

No more yok for me - I sold it to vulso. I never gave it time really the kyosho's really kept my hands full. Now the mugen is so spot-on from the box the kyoshos are going outlaw.

So when are these and any other creation going to be available?

I can imagine 2 to 3 months per each mold.

what is going to be the cost per shell?

The Cad drawing for the Buick will hopefully be finished by this weekend. The actual bodies will hopefully be available very soon. The prices are still to be finalised but I would estimate around $20

Hey Dan, no problem. No shipping from Ireland however. All shipping and manufacturing is being done in the USA.
