You can also get some wheel spacers, making them out of spare Lexan from your car's body is pretty easy. Tamiya make some 0.5mm and 1mm spacers: T53646 and T53647.
These are better than offset wheel hubs in my opinion.

Cheers, Mark.

Hey Guys... Here are some pics of my Honda body, Please forgive the quality, my phone is going in for a software upgrade, so this should sort this problem... I will be getting a protoform body to race with, this was a test run, but not the final paintjob for the race car, but will keep the guys at the parking lot in awe for a bit.

Way to go Baxter Plus, painting your own bodies is a much rewarding part of this hobbie

Unhappy

Hearing rumours Protoform has pulled the plug on the Mazda 6 (200mm) production due to Mazda being disatisfied with the mould and shape of the lexan body.Ferrari may have also withdrawn all license permission to continue producing the Proline 360 MODENA (200mm) body. Any body know, or is it just club rumours ??

Before Protoform goes and molds the body for the Mazda 6, they would have to get a license from Mazda first before they approve it so why would Mazda be dissatified? Im sure both parties must agree first before anything is in production.

Baxter,

Are you putting that body on the 710? Civic fan?

Seems they may have pulled license- change of mind-very costly if thats the case. Checked all local hobby stores-not one can get stock of Mazda 6 body(200mm).

I'm jealous.
Don't be ! Just find a person who will paint for tires and you'll get the same things I get !

I don't think the shell will see any action in a week or two...
