Looks a bit odd. My question is how the air is routed through the front? Do you have to glue or bolt the upper part on?

Looks like the Lexan is molded that way... if you do have to bolt it or glue it then

Looks a bit like the body from Motonica: http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...e-On-Road-Body

I see now that they have the same homologation number: EFRA 31520

Does look pretty innovative. I'd like to try it out but the season over here is just about over after this weekend...

Cool-looking body!! It looks like a 12th scale body that was supersized to fit an 8th scale. Curious to hear how well it works in relation to the other bodies on the market for 8th scale Lola.
