It should be released officially this week and start to ship to stores within the next couple of weeks.

I used to run PF bodies but got sick of them tearing. I'd look at it wrong & it'd tear
I switched over to Blitz & have never had a problem
They have a good range & seem much more resiliant then PF

I think the Blitz are like .1-.2 thicker than the PF, at least I think they are based off one I had that came with a used MTX4, I noticed it was a touch stronger, for club racing you often think a touch thicker would be nice, but then if I'd stop recking my shells on the first outing it would not be an issue...

EEL Monster;

I'll be perfectly honest with you - we don't get many complaints about our racebodie's lacking durability - not that I doubt your word. Matter of fact - we tend to hear just the opposite most of the time - that Protoform bodies are more durable than "brand X". I attend club races at least 10-12 times a year, and I attend at least 6 large "Nationals/Worlds" type races a year and have been for the last 19 years. I seriously cannot remember the last time someone came to me with a durability complaint. I'm dead serious.

Are you having these said problems with the 1/8th bodies or 1/10th ? What weight are you having the most problems with? Were they Lite weight (.030) or Pro-lite (.025). Or was it with Regular weight .040 on the 1/8th on-road bodies?

I noticed at the bottom of your post that you have a couple of "other" body manufacturers mentioned. Are you sponsored by either?

Thanks in advance for your response.

best regards - Dale Epp - Protoform

Hey Dale, love your bodies and durabilty.

Most professional of the bunch and the coolest aswell!

Keep it up!

What i wish to see from Proline in the future is laser pre cut bodies in order to have less hassle

Can't wait to try the new body
