When you say approved by RETRO do you mean the IRRL ?

When I say approved by RETRO I mean the Retro ElecTric Racing Organization (REtRO - sometimes pronounced Rut Roh).

 

As far as I know, the IRRL organization no longer exists. There is a movement to revive it, but nothing has happened officially as far as I know.

These are NOT IRRA approved as no submission was made to the BoD

The only thing bad about Retro is admitting that you remember doing it originally.

The point is moot as we have no intention of submitting our products to the IRRA for consideration at this time.

RETRO has quite an extensive approved body list, I have no idea how many of them are still available. It sort of reminds me of the NCP Hobby website.

Russ, they're Betta bodies. I believe Project X Racing is in Australia. I've not heard anyone in the US carries them. if there is, hopefully they'll post here.

Project X Slot Car Racing is based in the USA. There is also a Project X Rock Band, Project X Go-Kart team (Australia), Project X Golf Club Shafts, NASA's Project X (sending chimpanzees into orbit), etc.
