Default New Bodies

Would someone (serpent or proline protoform) please make some updated real 200mm touring car bodies like the real DTM touring cars ie: Audi or Mercedes real cars that are running not the unrealistic "status" that we are bound to running.

Tamiya has some nice 200mm touring car bodies, I dont think ther eis a German car in the mix,but you should check them out. Kyosho has some also.
You can pretty much give up on any other companies even trying to give you something wth scale.

I dont like jelly bean cars, And its strange as a i think 1/8th has more scale than modren 1/10 GP cars.

Most of these bodies can be purchased at Kyosho. The FW and the Fazer models are all with regulair DTM bodies. OK, they are not EFRA legal....
