Default 1-5th scale Series II Holden Commodore V8 Supercar body

Hey guys,


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2-K86Ncn8Ko

This is what you have been waiting for… a 1-5th scale Series II Holden Commodore V8 Supercar body shell designed and developed by world renowned body shell producer Frank Killam.

Now you can replicate the full size V8 Supercar teams down to exacting detail… this body was modelled off CAD data provided by Holden Motorsport and even incorporates a deep splitter front air dam – which will introduce some serious front end down force and improved steering.

To add to the authenticity, a decal kit consisting of head lights, grille and badges are available, as well as window paint mask sheets, both at extra cost.

Further information will be provided closer to the launch date (February 2011) and you can expect to be able to purchase these bodies from your local 1-5th scale hobby supplier.

For those interested, a Ford FG V8 Supercar body is in the development pipeline as well… It’s safe to say true 1-5th scale V8 Supercar racing has arrived.

Something tells me that this is for the 535 mm wheelbase, but don't quote me on this. Would be nice to get some datas on the with and wheelbase here Oh, very nice body by the way, always nice to see something new!

Isuspect you are right Lars. The way I see it, there is a massive pent-up demand for bodies for the 570mm Baja wheelbase.

I believe that someone who made a World Rally Championship, Dakar or German DTM body (in fact all of 'em!) would make a fortune.

Wow, that would be a nice supplement, i know that HPI would sell at least one more Baja (to me) if there was more onroad- and rallybodies for these cars
