If you are talking a Parma BrassKar, it's an early '80s creation, and there wouldn't be any particular body for it, unless you are talking as it came as an RTR.

I think the Parma Porshe was used. I know locally most used either the O/S or Camen Vette
A motor is only as fast as the chassis it's in.

For Wing or Scale? The Parma Fiero was a popular scale body for it.

I recall using the BrassKars as pre spring steel Grp 12 scale sports cars in the early 1990s.

True. Jerry Kulich had a crapload of those and the Champion counterpart, so we stuck Gp-12 C-cans in them and ran them with IMSA

style prototype and Euro group C type bodies on the MTT. Eventually we allowed strap cans, and the cars really got fast. I still have a

bunch of them.

Didn't Dick P. almost have a full-time job blueprinting BrassKars? This was before flexi racing became popular.
