    I think the price is too high!! Prices like this fuel the clone industries. You know when you go racing that beautiful body is not going to last more than 5 min!! Hope the price comes down I really want one but I rather spend $250.00 on chassis or engine hop ups.

    RE: 1/5 scale Nascar Body in at Daves Motors!!!

    Not so long ago ebay was filled with these 1/6 scale nascar bodies,

    http://cgi.ebay.ph/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?...m=220687659084

    one seller was selling them at just $12.99

    dont know if they would fit the baja but it brings the price into perspective,

    someone must be making at least $200 on each of the ddm bodies,

    Its me is that you?

    These bodies you are linking to will not fit "anything", they are to narrow to fit on a 1/6 gasser as they are only about 33 cm inch wide. Should have been atleast around 38-40 cm. Don't know about the wheelbase though...

    Lars, these are the bodies for the Hpi Baja that everyone has been talking about on the different websites. Sorry I forgot to mention that I was too shocked over the price.

    DDMDave:
    Just a comment on the price. These bodies are made in Canada, and because they are so large, the shipping costs to get them to us are very high. Plus, they are very expensive on our end to ship to the end user. So I wish they could have retailed for under $200, but it's just not possible. These do look amazing though! They came in today and we admired them all afternoon.

    Has anyone recieved one of these Nascar bodies yet?? I hear that the first run is not too good with instructions missing and bubbles in the lexan. If you have one of these bodies how would you rate it quality wise??

    Does anyone know if there is a way for us Canadians to get it direct, thus avoid some of the shipping costs?!
