What you say is true supacha but the Sportline is the only 1/5 scale 4wd onroad car you can buy. Where I live their are only untreated low traction parking lots to run on all, 2wd does is spin out on these surfaces.

That body is currently on an Ebay auction. Guess one of us will have to research more details in regards to it.

Default Nice 1:5 bodys

Can some of you guys recommend some exotic body's which are used in the US?
I don't mean the common TC bodys.
Those ones we have in Germany plenty of.
Currently I am waiting for the new BMW Z4 coupe which should be released soon as well as a new Audi A5 DTM - both legal EFRA body's.
But for the eye or for internal club races I am always looking for special ones.
The before showed Audi LeMans body probably won't fit to our car - no space for the huge air filter. First it is much bigger then the one on the picture and second the motor of our cars is differently mounted on the car.
Next week I will try to show some pictures of our cars in here...

See ya

Default Race engine HRP 03 G240

We use a Zenoah HRP03 G240 engine.
That is a modified G240 with machined piston and modified in- and outputs.
As pipe we use Samba 7. One of our members even bought a titanium Samba 7 - but just for showroom - looks very very nice!

Great pics!!! Now that is what I am talking about. The one I am working towards getting won't be quite as hot as the ones you have pictured, but I will be getting the BMW body like the ones you pictured. Very nice looking track in the background to race on, I see.

Not over the top on the paint job I know but I was impatient at the time.....
Well, it was my first 1/5th scale

Thank you sir .... Not elaborate thats for sure.
Secretly, I'm a bit of a McLaren fan. But don't tell anyone

I do like the look of the BMW SCT car. Makes me want another 1/5th

God knows what I would do with it though. I think I'm the only one for miles with a 1/5th scale as it is. Even though running one, as we've said is about the same as a 1/10th. But hey ho. May well go for it. Not till 2014 though.

Regards,
Bm
