The biggest reason for this body is so its legal for the worlds, it has nothing to do with ROAR rules. USA is the host nation, but the the worlds are still run by IFMAR, so IFMAR rules apply, not ROAR rules.

The EFRA meeting did tell there will be a global spec body and the goal is the end of 2011 so I think there will be also global rules.....

The funny thing is that most drivers are complaining about lowering the body, they do not get the grip and speed as used to be. As it is a problem for everyone it is the task for each driver to get the best out of it within the rules, it is nothing to complain about, it is just racing.

I think the body rule is a good thing. These bodies IMO are starting to look like dirt cars with the high side dams where the cars are stuck and I think EFRA is trying to bring back the appearance of realism and making us have to drive the cars a little more. So the easyest thing to do is lower the side dams.

Does anybody knows when will this body and the P909 be on protoform's website?

I see the 909 and assume that if I order it that I will receive the new P909 - but I don't see the new R15B there.
