Then how does one explain the Stratus? I haven't heard of any racing series with "Strati" in participation. Another example- Mazda 6

Agreed,

Strati were used in the old NATCC series, Mazda 6's can be seen in Speed Touring Series.

The Stratus 2.0 and 300m however are wannabe race cars.

They are making a 200mm Cadillac CTS body. Check the web-site. Here's the part # if you want to research it.

Cadillac CTS-V R 200mm Part #1475-00


Ok go nuts. BTW, as far as the Stratus goes, David Donahue used to race a Stratus. That's why when you buy the Stratus from Protoform, you'll notice a sticker on the sheet that says Donahue.

You know, i'm not 100% sure on your rules but i think it says it should be a International Touring car Series and International is more than the United States, Right?
The Stratus ran in the Swedish Touring Car Championship for about 4 years....

Default Doors!

Man I miss the old days ! I useto Race Real cars professionally and I dont remember any of my race cars having doors let alone 4 of them The saying back then was if your race car had doors then it wasen't really a race car. I loved doing the Da Hellion 1 but the one part I didn't care for was cutting the lines for the back doors. And to this day when I see a Dodge Straitus I think to myself man that's not a race car and If you park it next to the Caddy in this Post you tell me which one looks more like a race car and it goes with out saying if you raced the two cars the Caddy would smoke it ! OK done venting

I emailed protoform and they said they aren't making the 200mm body yet. The lady said they would take my comments on the car into consideration. Hopefully they will make it.

Protoform always claims that they have no plans to make the 200mm version, only to release it on the webpage a few days later. If you dig up old posts regarding Protoform body releases, you'll hear the same "no plans to release" e-mail replies.

When has Protoform ever disappointed the 200mm community? I think it's safe to assume Protoform will always produce a 200mm version of a RACING body. Don't waste your time to e-mail them.
