It should be since it won the recent 1/10 German Touring car championship and all 10 finalist used this body, in Europe it has to be EFRA legal before it can be used in any EFRA sanctioned race.

...but the German championship is not an EFRA sanctioned race.
No, as I know the Audi A5 body is not yet omologated by EFRA...it will be in the next month

No need for an EFRA number at German nationals up to 2009.

Mine also have the efra number, ordered them last week.
Just ordered them at the local reseller, didn't ask for the number specifically so I think most body's currently sold will have the number.
I believe Rcmarket had the Xceed one with the efra number as well.

Is there a difference between the A5 brands? I know that we from Shepherd also sell them.

Nope, they are all the same. The original is made by SLB in Germany in corporation with Orcan (German distributer). For selling outside Germany they are being sold under the Xceed, shepherd and Capricorn name but all still have the SLB logo on the side of the body.

I think Serpent America is the Xceed body distributor in the states, to answer your question.

Thanks for the reply. Serpent is "out of stock" at the moment. I see kamakazi also carries it but; they are also "out of stock". Was curious if anyone had one in stock that is stateside.


Pass you soon...
