OK, good news is the numbers did not have to change except for two.

 

These numbers have changed #1057B is MAC Gulf Mirage and #1059B is MAC Porsche 917-30.  

 

Of course all have the B suffix to indicate .010" thickness bodies.
 
Here is the updated body list with the correct numbers.

Champion  Super Shadow.jpg

 

I have just found Champion's Super Shadow body at a distributor's web-site, as shown above.

Is it legal for Retro-Pro/ Can-Am Plus?

 

As for the presently approved Retro-Pro/Can-Am Plus bodies, I am just familiar with Electric Dreams' versions.

Would there be any difference between them & Parma, OS versions regarding materials, or flex of bodies?

 

Good Racing,

 

Haruki

Hi Haruki,

 

No the Shadow is not legal.

 

The Electric Dreams (MAC) bodies are the same as Parma's.  The only OS bodies approved are the Porsche and Mirage and they must meet the specs of being 10 thousandths thick and .7  on the sides.

Nice to know parma CAN change the truth of history. The catalog did change to include previously unknown part numbers.  1984 at work.
