    Do the Parma bodies hold up well, I've never had one before.

    Use to run the Parma Rattler almost exclusively. Looked so-so, but the deep wheel wells were what I liked.

    Now I have a Parma Speed-Flo that I race on a hard clay track. So far, no issues whatsoever.

    .crispy do they feel as thick as the proline or j concepts ones? I saw somewhere that some were on the thin side.

    No, I don't think they are. But that makes them lighter and good for racing.

    Keep in mind, due to my experience with Parma bodies, I know where they start to rip/tear most often. So those areas get a thin layer of shoe goo and drywall mesh tape. Makes them indestructible...

    Oooh I want one! Thanks Parma for making a different kind of body:


    Was it by chance inspired by Larry Schwacofer's Baja 1000 racer from the '80s ????

    I'm wanting one of the fifty five bodies.

    Snickle, that's exactly what I was thinking! What an awesome car that was! Since I saw this body, I have been thinking of doing a replica. Parma bodies are just ok, though.
