I was wondering who makes a Bently body for GT12? I know that JK makes one and used for GT1

The O/S Bentlee is a great body designed by none other than our own Wayne H! It's very fast but has one area you will want to watch. It has a tendency to kink the center right in front of the windsheild down to the chassis. On my ASP III when that happens it puts enough strain on the chassis to make the chassis not work any more. When this happens I have to pick up the car and straighten it out. Surprisingly enough this doesn't seem to happen with all the bodies. I don't know if it's a paint issue or simply due to the differences in thickness of the pull.

This is usually caused by the marshall.

I believe the 068 is the GTP stamped c-can body and the 069 is for Eurosport & gt-12 (lower in the motor box area.

068 and 069 are identical in the motor box area. 069 has deeper "tunnels" through the middle of the body. 069 has the extensions on the side dams. the body is quite long and was designed specifically for gt-12, c12es and es24. when the body is cut for a 1-5/8" height, the back deck just clears a c-can perfectly. with cobalt motors you can go as low as you like.

Hi,

Is the ultimate Intrepid still a good body?

And it is legal for GT12?

If the Ultimate Intrepid is not the top anymore... what is it?

The o/s caddy
fits perfect on gt 12s and such.
but when mounted on a flexi you must leave more of a front bumber so that the uprights for the front wheels will clear the body but it still works great, I set track record in gtp yesterday at the TRACK with this body. also avail. high and low down force both are usra and ussca aproved.

I'm using the LOLA form PSE... But I will have to test others as well, including the Cad. But one thing i don't like about it... is that the CAD seems to be quite short. Is is my impression only?

Another one that I should make a try is... the good ol Intrepid and the Ultimate Intrepid... what do you think?

not as current but I'm sure there is a place for them as well. You might try the parma caddy as well also avail in high and low down force.

Hi Mark,

There is also the Magnum PSE that look like a LOLA. I will have a try.
