Default Stunning McLaren M8f Can-Am Body

Hello everyone - I'm Bruce from historicRC. We are very proud to release our latest 1/8 RC body, the McLaren M8f - please see it at historicRC.com - what do you all think? This body has been a labor of love from start to finish - I really wanted to do this car justice in 1/8 scale, and have come up with some innovative solutions to make it all happen. The end result, I'm pleased to say, is a car which looks insane and handles awesome.

Very nice

That really does remind me of the Can-Am Lolas I used to watch on ABC sports, when I was young.
Also brings back the memories of my Jackie Stewart and AFX slot racing track. I had this one.

Your website doesn't mention overseas shipping.

Could you provide some shipping rates?

BTW, thanks for thinking outside the box. This is definitely a unique and great car body.

WOW, a 1/8 body that actually resembles the car it's named after . WHAT A CONCEPT !! If this body does work decently it will make the products from the other body manufacturers look like bad jokes.

indeed, it's a beauty. The body is made up of several parts, sidewalls middle piece and spoiler. I just wonder how crash resistend that is? Will it hold or fall to pieces when you hit another car as it is not made out of one piece but glued together?

Those bodies are real cool. Has anyone tested or ran any of these bodies?
