After some work I finally got one form off the new mold.
This mold will still take some work before these can be made available, there is quite a bit of window smoothing to do and some other finishing touches. But this does give you a pretty good Idea of what the finished Bus will look and fit like.
Thw wheel wells had to be opened up some to get good articulation without rubbing but I did try to maintain a semi stock trim line.
The body weighs in at 38gr with mounts so it does come in just at the low side of stock body weights.
I haven't run it yet....but am looking forward to it.....first some paint and decals.

I guess this is a test to judge interest in this body before I invest a huge amount of time into making the mold workable.

I think it's awsome! It only needs a surf board on top. Will this body fit any of the MR's? If it will i would be interested in 1. I don't have an MZM/04 yet, probably not till spring of next year and maybe by then there'll be word if there'll be an AWD model coming out or not.

I have to admit it look's slick and love to add a few to my collection, just been busy lately. I still haven't painted the beetle body yet, or even mounted it. Right now I am tied up with Christmas shopping and other projects, maybe early next year I can work something out.

I doubt it will fit the racers, body is 2 1/2 inches wide and racers run in the 2 3/4 wide area, but who knows, maybe with neg narrows all the way around?

I'd be extremely interested in one for my SSMT. I love it!
