That looks really cool, both the body and the simple yet very nice paint job! Where did you get the body from by the way? It is not everyday you see such nice bodies in this scale.

Thanks! This is an OFNA body for the 1:8 GT class cars. This is for my DM-1 spec. http://www.rccoh.com/IMG/collections...dm-1.spec.html

These are big fun cars. Just a small class and cool bodies are hard to find other than the standard PF-8.

Have you seen [link=http://www.deltaplastik.it/index.php?p=prodotti&l=eng&cat1=6&cat2=11&cat3=15]this[/link] site? I don't know if your car has got the standard 305 mm width, but if it does, these will fit I ordered the Seat Cordoba there for my Associated RC8b to convert it from buggy to rally.

I have seen those, but through a distributor here in the States, at what appears at a high mark-up even with the conversion. Maybe they will ship to U.S.?

Thanks for the heads-up.

I payed 30 euros for shipping, it was more then i payed for the body. So you might have to buy several ones as the shipping on 50 euros to U.S. (or the rest of the world as they describe it) to not "loose" too much money on the trade. But i reckon that they will ship to U.S.

Thanks for the info Lars!

Here's a video to show the size of this to those not familiar with GT.
