Whoops just looked at the two bodies I have and both have the large ones in two different places, one behind the rear wheel and the other has it in front. So I guess it doesn't matter lol.

My Mugen rear wing is slightly different than the protoform one. What wing and what position are you guys installing at and which wing are you guys using?

Default IFMAR WORLDS Qualifying

WOOO HOOO! Dario Balestri Just TQ'ed at the IFMAR WORLDS in Monteux France!

Dario has used the Protoform R19 all week. Five other "Top 16" racers used the PF R19 body as well.

Protoform race bodies were used by 10 of the Top 16 qualifiers -
7 racers using the PF R19
3 racers using the PF P909.

Bruno Coelho and 3 other racers used Protoform bodies to qualify, but listed a different body brandname.
Anything to keep sponsors happy....I guess.

Thanks Serpent-Dan and YBSLOW!!

Ya....Dario was really on his game!

This one felt very satisfying for me and Eric and the Protoform team in California. This was our 4th IFMAR 1/8th On-Road WORLDS in a row.
(and our 25th IFMAR Worlds title as a body brand, since our first in 1994)

They're are getting tougher all the time to win, mainly due to underhanded dealings of the competition and some of their contract drivers.
We now have to submit new bodies for EFRA approval as late a possible........just before the deadline date. If not, there's four or five
competing body companies will do "their own" cloned version in a heartbeat. It's a pretty disappointing and convoluted deal these days.

We had 6 of the 10 A-Main finalists. Mazzeo and Picco both used Protoform throughtout the entire event.

Hey Brother Dale do you guys offer pre-but bodies ? If not that might be something you guys should look into I know tons of guys would love them and they seem to sell out fast when available.

We've seen the writing on the wall for a while now. They are working on it at the PL/PF plant in Banning. They are coming, but right now, no ETA.

Best regards - Dale - Protoform
