I was at the Nitromaxx challenge this weekend doing a little MT racing and saw a half 8 on display at the Proline tent with a crowd pleaser body on it. The body has the exact same look as the full size version and was painted in Mark Pavidas's paint scheme, I didn't have my digital camera with me my friend took some video I will see if I can get him to post it.

...that would be the MINI T crowd pleaser? Or the 18T crowd pleaser? Or another one altogether? I am maxxed out but would someone go and wake up Proline and get them to post something?

Note: That is a picture of proline's crowd pleaser shell for the big 1/8th scale Kyosho 777

Oh!! I was thinking it was the CP truck body.

Never the less, that looks pretty sweet. At least it has some body lines and curves unlike the stock H8 body.....

The proline buggy shell is very sleek and should have a much better scale appearence than the somwhat boxy stock H8 shell. Im glad to hear proline is joining the H8 craze.

There was also some talk about tires and rims for the half 8. I would love to have some Crime Fighters for racing and some Badlands for bashing.

...I recently spoke to RPM and they said they had nothing 'specifically' for the H8...Once longer axles come out I will be VERY enthused about fitting black Revolvers with Dirthawgs :D YUP Proline sure does some good stuff...Did anybody contact them or do i have to do it again ? :p

..more sloping front, little tighter pinch around her backside...No bad at all...But it really is a paintjob that makes a body ;)

looks pretty good and is cheaper than the stocker...

...interesting to see that they have lowered it quite a lot...Looks good...Is that a stock wing?

...on another note I actually chopped the nose off my stock body because it was a pian in the bum to fit and take off but now I am having aerodynamic problems I will probably keep my Pyrographix body nose on...

...Does it look like this body is actually REDUCING room INSIDE the body?

...If anybody finds this one let me know...I would like to pick one up when they arrive...

my bad...I just called my LHS. they are like the guys that work at the autoparts store. They don't know what it is but I give them a number and they can order it.
It doesn't mean that their Dist (great planes) has them but it just assure one to me when they show up.

SWEET!!!! I want one........

It's so annoying that everone is running the same body at the track...I had to rip all the decals off so that I can actually see which one is mine. :p

I really like this one - can't wait till it is available over here in Germany. I hope I can find someone who will airbrush it for me - my own paintjobs suck :D
