    I've seen it on other forum and seems like everyone don't like it.

    I think that body would make a nice Pike's Peak rally car. I like it either way.

    Kindof "swoopy"... but better than the proline focus body IMO. At least theres another option right. More options is always good.

    I like the rear vents... but every time I think of Parma all I can see is old pan car bodies painted neon pink.. They're website and product photos are straight out of 1993. Not sure why they haven't tried to update theyre look.

    I totally agree, the more options the better. I think this looks more rally then the focus. I just wish proline could get the focus looking like the 1/16 one.

    You know what, ive been looking at this body more and I think the only thing thats really wrong with it is the paint. The body itself isnt "swoopy", jsut the paint is. Parma needs to start using better artists for their show bodies. This paint job isnt doing this body justice at all.

    Oooooh I dig this body. I have to agree the paint job really throws it off. Also the rear wing is just sweet.

    I like that body much better than the stock one, not to say there is anything wrong with the stock one. But upgrades are always nice, it has that long hood look of a rear drive hatch.

    I take it from the discussion that the Parma body does not come clear and unpainted? Didn't go to the site.....

    It comes clear. They were just commenting on how the paint job parma demonstrates doesnt do it justice.

    have to agree with most.
    Body itself looks good, imho better than stock, but the paint job doesn't do it justice at all
    Too bad I just ordered a clear stock one to finish my rally build
