Are there any updates concerning this body's characteristics?
It's way to silent here.

I got mine last week, but didn't prepare it so far as this weekend's race will be run with Lola bodies.
How does it compare to the well known ones?
Mine will be run mid July...not earlier...

Quality is typical for Protoform bodies...great.

@ Dale...

When can we expect the version with EFRA-# ??


Regards...MARTIN

I spoke to Dale about this today. Basically, they (EFRA) only issues numbers once a year in January. The body has to be submitted by Dec 1st, then you pay a fee and then they issue the number.

Bottom line is the earliest that a number could be issued is Jan 2011. The body is legal for the Worlds as it is Roar approved, but for other areas I do not know if its legal.

Questions?? RR. Window?

I haven't found a really good pic of this body in race form. I'm trimming mine out and I'm not 100% sure about the rear window. It has dotted lines that I assume are cutting guides. Do you cut out the upper half or lower half? I can see an advantage either way with relation to downforce. TIA! Nick A

Roadrash is correct. The intention was to remove the lower half.

Running on my NT!, gave one to Dave Elrich to run on his NT1, it's just awesome. W cut out entire rear window car has more than enough down force and steering. Best balanced body to date for the NT1. Ran at TZ raceway Park.
