They actually discontinued that shell a long time ago and I actually found one in a hobby store and the guy looked surprised when I bought both bodies. It's a 190mm shell for an electric car as nitro cars run a 200mm shell.

Since I bought two one is goingto be painted as a normal color as my R and the other will be painted like the ATSpeed car.

Is it me or does it look like it has the Evolve front bumper?

Hey that's cool, what kind of chassis do you have? I never did like the quality of protoform bodies, I always found the plastic was way thinner than HPI or Tamiya bodies, didn't last as long. Though I did run a S80 protoform body for a while.

Re: (vintagemilano)

Funny thing is that I don't even have a car yet but probably going to pick up a Team Associated TC4. I've had a T-Maxx but wanted something to represent my love for the Volvo.

Ya, I've got a HPI pro 3, bit on the old side now but not really using it since we moved, no one to race with anymore. Team assosiated are good chassis as is an HPI pro 4, I would get the one that has the easiest to get parts unless you are going to really race it.
