Oh come on, I am not disputing anything you are saying. I never said 8th scale on-road is not the F1 racing of all classes. Well, maybe not. 5th scale has a better F1 look and feel. Same with that Chinese made Serpent F1 car. Perhaps 8th scale on-road is the fastest of all classes?

Anyhow, yeah electrics can be called cheesy and whatnot, but they are more versatile than nitro cars. You can at least run electrics indoors and not have to worry about fumes. Furthermore, you REALLY cannot deny swiss-cheese 10th scale nitro cars as anything but ugly. Why do you think Mugen, Serpent, Xray, and other companies that produce 10th scale nitro cars prefer to display their cars with bodies intact? Answer me that one, batman!

Thumbs up

For those of you still wondering about the potential of the new PROTOform P909 body, the results just in from Florida are very encouraging. Seems like the body is off to a pretty good start. With Mike Swauger and Ralph Burch showing some amazing speed and domination throughout the the entire week of racing at the Ft Myer's WinterNat'ls classic. They qualified #1 and 2 after virtually every round. There was a 27 lap "new track record" for Mike and a blistering 10.9 second single lap record for Ralph - and those were pretty awsome as well.

Thanks to Mike, Ralph, Ted Hammer and Gary Swayze (and the others) for taking a chance on a brand new product at an important event like the WinterNationals!

Hi Dale, the only problem with the body is I can't get a hold of one....lol
J/K... I have one with my painter

Looks like Mike and Ralph was on a different pace. It's unfortunate that they couldn't bring home the win... Oh well that's racing for you

Congratulations on another fast body!

Default Q?

What is on the other side of those rivets? Some kind of stiffener?

The closed cockpit design is beautiful. It is heck of a lot better than that midget retard open cockpit design.

Congrats Dale for getting the EFRA no. and for making this apparently great body. Please start the production in full swing and kindly inform MERIT RACING BV in The Netherlands, so that they can place their PO. As you can see we guys here are anxiously waiting for and eager to test it.
