10 Race-Winning Touring Car Bodies From PROTOform

The ZR1 is one mean and extreme Corvette production supercar. Under the hood is a super powerful 755 horse engine that launches this Vette to a top speed of 212mph. With stats like that and the pedigree of Corvette, PROTOform just had to bring it to 1/10-scale and makes a great touring car body.

10 Race-Winning Touring Car Bodies From PROTOform

Now for a total change of pace with some European flare…enter the Europa clear body. PROTOform developed and produced this body specifically for the front wheel drive touring cars. Although this body is not directly modeled after a full size car, it clearly has styling cues taken from popular European hatch back cars that compete in the full-scale TCR classes around the globe.

The rear end of the PROTOform Europa features molded in wing platforms that support the add-on nylon wing struts and wing to give it that realistic racing appearance. Moving forward is a slammed hatchback roofline matched up with aggressive fender flares. Again, PROTOform employed the latest in 3D CAD and 5-axis CNC technology to achieve the outstanding symmetry and quality of the surfaces.

Ford GT clear body—1550-25

We are suckers for the Ford GT and completely love the 1/10-scale version that PROTOform created. It has that awesome ultra-low stance with teardrop shaped cockpit and cool B-pillar “side wings”. PROTOform accurately captured the look of the full size Ford GT and helped to yield it officially licensed status. Now you can own a 1/10-scale rendition of the GT class winning car that won at the 2016 24 Hours of Le Mans and back to back wins at the 24 Hours of Daytona (2017-2018).

Although the body has an ultra-low body line, extra clearances were built-in so that it can fit over the front and rear shock towers. The rear wing and distinctive side wings are add-on parts that can be attached with the included hardware. If you don’t want the non-scale look of the hardware, you can affix the wings with shoo-goo or high strength double-sided tape. Like the rest of the PROTOform touring car bodies, the Ford GT comes with a sticker sheet, window masks and overspray film.

SPECS

  • Length: 17.25 in. (438mm)

Type-S Light Weight & Type-S PRO-Lite Weight clear bodies—1560-25/1560-22

10 Race-Winning Touring Car Bodies From PROTOformLike the Europa body, these Type-S bodies were created by PROTOform and are not copies of a full-size sedan. The Type-S Light Weight and Type-S PRO-Lite Weight clear bodies are high downforce racing bodies. They are ideal for modified classes or any other track condition and or class where more grip is required. You will find that these bodies offer super precise steering characteristics along with outstanding rear grip, the balance provided is unmatched by any other body on the 190mm electric touring car market. During testing by PROTOform’s team drivers, they discovered the Type-S hand no problem handling multiple racing surface types: ETS carpet, outdoor or indoor asphalt, or high-grip CRC black carpet.

In order to achieve this impressive level of performance, the overall stiffness of the body was addressed. Ridges along the hood, a-pillar and trunk bed provide increased rigidity to create less body tuck and less flex while not sacrificing performance. To assist in body positioning which is a critical body tuning step, PROTOform incorporated mounting marks inside the front wheel arches. Positions for 0, +2mm, +4mm and +6mm are marked.

The two bodies are identical except that the PRO-Lite is approximately 15-percent lighter than the Type-S Light Weight. They are also Global Body Spec compliant and fully EFRA and ROAR approved.

SPECS

  • Length: 16.61 in. (422mm)
  • Width: 7.58 in. (192.5mm)
  • Height: 4.53 in. (115mm)
