The pics look awful.....really faded, but the color is a vibrant red. The wing, spoiler, hood, trunk, and rear and painted black underneath with Rustoleum matte clear on the outside. Hopefully it'll hold up pretty well!





Whoa! Badass Toe-moss! It'll take me a little while to get used to you in your new colors. Ok, maybe only after the second time you lap me...

Thanks, RJ! LOL! Yeah, it's going to feel weird watching something on the track that's not a blue Penske Camaro!

I've been running three degrees of rear toe because when I don't, on asphalt the back end likes to pass the front. Thing is that I have been running that setup on carpet as well. This makes me consider running a little less rear toe.

You can't get carbon fiber for the TC4 anymore can you? Can you still get that new?

@Snoopy,
I think that the Diggity Designs DC4 is the best choice. I have a FT TC4 with the carbon chassis and was looking for another, but they are hard to find and hard to put together as individual parts since the motor mount for the TC4 carbon chassis is out of production.

I thought that might be the case. I am surprised that we haven't heard from Exotek since AE seems to be selling a lot of club racer TC4 chassis. Maybe I am wrong about how many of them are out there.

This is a PROTOForm J71 that I airbrushed for a local racer this week in his colors. He'll add finishing touches. Looking forward to seeing it on the track! The J71 is a very light body. Comes with an extra nose in case you didn't know that. That's a nice touch.

So NOT in the spirit of VTA. I vote to ban Nick from using it.

But pretty!

I hear ya. I also have to run 3* rear toe on asphalt especially in the cold mornings we have been having here. I would try 2.5* on a warmer summer day though.
