Has anyone tested/raced the new Parma Charger body? Although it looks great, I'm curious to see what people think of the way the body works. Please let me know what you think of the way it works.

 

Many thanks,

Reports from Ohio are that it's great.

Can anyone post a photo of it?

 

David, you don't like it much, why?  Body shape, handling quirks, etc.

Are all the newer Charger bodies based on the Charger 500 model without the notched rear window or is the Parma the first?

LOL, Bill.

 

Jay Guard pointed that out to me when it was first approved. That it was a Charger 500, that is...

Wrong Charger!!! I was describing the 1127A which probably isn't that new. I tried one and it didn't make a very good flat track body... the Retro 1061 looks pretty good!

I've been totally behind the curve on this one... didn't even know it was out. I've just now gotten one and it looks very good. Cut lines, wheel well lines, etc., are much crisper than on the Cyclone. Should be a nice complement to the Parma Cyclone/Torino. I'll get an approval announcement up for NorCal.
