Some if the inspiration came from the cars in the Swedish Touring Car Championship. Very radical cars indeed.

VERY NICE DESIGN ON THIS BODY!!! THE FRONT LOOKS TO BE VERY AGGRESSIVE BUT ALSO SEEMS TO LOOK VERY SMOOTH OVER THE TOP AND SIDES OF THE BODY CANT WAIT TO GRAB ONE AND SEE HOW IT PERFORMS ON FLOWING HIGH SPEED TRACKS!!PROTOFORM ALWAYS SEEM TO STAY ON TOP OF THE GAME WITH THESE BODIES MY FAVORITE SO FAR IS P-37 LETS SEE IF THIS NEW CAR CAN BEAT THAT BODY

I ordered some of these. Anxious to give them a tray and see their characteristics when compared to the other offerings from Protoform.

I already have them and they look pretty cool IMO. I am in the process of mounting them and will be doing some testing in 2 weeks.

I will let you know when I run it. I will be testing back to back again the SRS, as this is the body I currently run everywhere.

DJ,
How do you mount your srs?
Forward? Or do you line up the wheel wells?

Just got one of three mounted and ready with very quick paint job.. We leave for the 3rd round of the ENS in Hockenheim tomorrow. The track is very long and I think it will work great there.

A big thank you to Dale, Eric and everyone at Proline\Protoform.

wow that has to be the ugliest body from protoform. It looks to have a lot of drag with all those airfoils too prob kills about 5mph on topend anyway protoform does make the best bodies period but this one bit the bullet for me I was hoping it was a touring ford fusion that would be an awesome looking touring ride
