The follow up to the ultra successful Protoform Mazdaspeed6 race body is here, the Mazda 6GX. Officially licensed, it captures all the details from the full-scale racer, the GX’s striking lines, hood air extractors and signature Mazda grille which give it an unmistakable look, showing that form can indeed coalesce with function. The Mazda6 GX is proving to be a contender right out of the box. Initial testing on asphalt from Team Protoform drivers and ISTC World Champions Marc Rheinard and Jilles Groskamp has them raving: “Great steering but the rear end also has stability,” Marc said after using a Mazda6 GX to win the 2013 Bangkok Int’l RC Championship in its first race ever, “Overall great traction. I love it.” Reigning champ Groskamp had this to say: “The GX seems to have the steering of the LTC-R and stability of the Mazdaspeed6! Overall lap times matched the LTC-R right away but the GX just drives really easy!”

Bittydesign have introduced the Nardò 190mm touring car bodyshell. Tested and developed for several months in Italy by their official development team together with German and Finnish team drivers the final result is a bodyshell with different recognisable features, in particular the front and rear tyres area. Testing has shown that the body gives lots of steering on corner entry but at same time plenty of grip and speed in the second part of the turn along with stability under acceleration. Made to meet EFRA specs, it is expected to receive its homologation number in January. Made from 0.75mm thick high quality polycarbonate, the body comes with a complete set of large plastic washers to fix the rear wing perfectly along with steel screws & nuts. Expect the product to arrive at distributors in the next 10 days.

Pro-Line have three new off-road body shells available in the form of the SC-compatible Desert Raid as well as two Ford F-100 bodies. Starting with the Desert Raid, it is modelled after the prototype SU vehicles used at endurance rallies such as the Dakar and it fits many of today’s short course trucks such as the Pro-2 SC, the Slash 2WD and 4×4 as well as the SC10. Mounting the body requires the use of extended body mounts and you can even dare to race it as Flo-Tek air escape vents reduce the so called parachute effect often associated with this type of body shell. The body comes clear, includes window masks and a decal sheet.

The clear body is made from 0.75mm thick polycarbonate, it comes without a driver’s helmet and fits most of today’s formula chassis.

The raised rear end needs to use extended body mounts but otherwise the body is a direct fit.
