Sure there were some bodies out there already but the only chassis available were SS pan cars which were not yet setup for 1 cell. I've talked to 1 or 2 manufactures about the early days of WGT and their rolls in getting the class going. WGT started with the semi scale 200mm TC bodies but didn't really take off until there were WGT specific chassis. That's when it became big enough for the major races to take note and include them in the program.

At either rate the bodies that are currently available for 200mm pan cars do not have sufficient scale looks or detail to attract the scale enthusiasts.

Don't get me wrong...I don't mean to put a damper on things...I really like the idea of this class and hope it can come about.
