Ya, a direct backpour of the PROTOform P-56 racebody.

Bitty Design = No shame - No integrity and obviously No designing skills.

Seems they are very good at telling lies however: from RedRC - ".....it has been developed with top Italian driver Giorgio de Felici and top international driver Francesco Tironi."

Nice of you to notice.

The "NEW" Exceed GT-C5 body? Ya, it too is a direct backpoured rip-off - this time of the PROTOform P909

Xceed Bodies = No shame - No integrity and in this case obviously No designing skills. Anybody can round off a corner with sandpaper.

Seems they are very good at telling lies however: from RedRC - ".....developed in Germany according to the new IFMAR regulations..."

The thing is that Dale can't get royalties for this. If he could for all the clones made from his designs, it would make it easier for him to do more licensed bodies because the licensing fees would be paid for by the royalties.

Let these ripoff companies know how you feel and talk with your wallet. Buy the real thing... PROTOFORM RACE BODIES.

I am a little confused. Did Bitty Designs copy the body and the pain scheme, or the body itself. Bitty Designs has painted a copy of bodies for me, and did a fantastic job.So no issues there, but if they are copying a body design that is a different story. PROTOform bodies are by far the best, but they are being copied by a Bitty Designs , I will never ask them to paint another body for me in the future.

Bitty did a bit of a disquise job with different head/tail lite, grill decals. The body is dead nuts Protoform. When you've done this for a living for 18 years, you get to know your own work.

I normally would not hi-jack another companies thread. In this case though - it's different.

Did a side-by-side pic comparison and Dale is dead-on. They did do a slight trick up with where some of the front-end decals are put by indenting the area a little but the overall design/shape is definitely P37-N. However, I will stick with the tried and true Protoform bodies.

Well if that is the case, I will never use them again. With them being overseas, the cost for my body,paint, plus shipping was close to $300.00, but I knew it would be high due to the paint scheme. Kind of ironic though, as it was a PROTOform body.
Last time I will use them for anything.

Why don't you bother to get over to the R15B thread and explain to us, why you are stating on January 13, that you had received the EFRA number for the R15B a week ago and engraved the tool the same day, BUT you are still shipping your old bodies with no EFRA number to Europe WHERE THE NUMBER IS NEEDED?
We got heaps of useless R15's bodies without EFRA numbers in stock, because we ordered plenty, based on your statement here.

But no, you don't answer these uncomfortable questions for the second time, bacause you are busy dissing companies here for their work.

To me, your R15B for example looks like a rip off off the Blitz R11, which btw, has had an EFRA number for several weeks now.
