Protoform R9-R & PF8 GT body shells

Protoform have released their much anticipated R9-R, which is the latest in 190mm touring sedan bodies. This Global Body Spec ready race body is designed specifically for rubber tire racing whether it’s on a carpet or a paved surface racetrack. It features a low center of gravity even at the legal 115mm height. The oversize rear wing helps performance on a poor-grip surface that’s commonly experienced in club racing. Also new is the PF8 GT shell, designed for the exciting 1/8th scale GT class. This body style is sure to enhance speed and handling with its large rear wing and front splitter. It’s pulled in rugged genuine lexan and features 3 wing struts for added durability. If more rear downforce is required, the wing has the extra lexan material needed to bend a “gurney lip” across the top edge. Both bodies come with protective film, decals and wing mounting hardware.
