That would be slick for RCGT, but I dont think many people are going to run it on an E10.

Just finished working on my latest project. It is an HPI 350Z inspired by my favorite shirt designer Dorki Dori Clothing. I haven't done a body in a long time and forgot a basic concept - do not cut on blue tape, the lines are never sharp enough! I'll probably do another one but use vinyl paper next time around and a more intricate pattern. Here's my drift/rcgt body:

I really want to get my hands on one of these Lexus Bodies for a little project I'm doing. Any details or where to buy would be mostly appreciated. Also were the light buckets included in the kit.

Cheers

I love it. I have always been a fan of the HPI Greddy shell. What wing are you using with that?

The Lexus IS-F body is not out yet, it will be available soon. The wing on the white car is also a new design.

so where do you get the cool parts?... mirrors, exhaust tips, disk brakes? Does anyone race w/ them? seems they'd get broken off pretty easy...

Thanks.

-The IS F will be out shortly
-It does include front and rear light buckets
-The stock wing is actually the one that is shown on the black body
-The white body has the optional HPI GT wing (#85612)

RE:Running with mirrors, exhaust etc.
The local RCGT series gives bonus points for running with mirrors, exhausts and intercoolers etc. The mirrors stay on pretty good, the exhaust sometimes get lopped off..although it doesnt really get killed, so you just have to put it back on. It totally depends on the other people that are running. If everyone is into it then people usually show a little bit more courtesy and aim for realistic racing also...clean passes...maybe bumping but not plowing into each other etc....

Thanks for the info andy. bonus points..interesting..

Always love seeing new bodies come out. duno about that lexus... Love the fenders,skirts & wing but seems too much of a stretch for me... like putting a body kit & wing on a carola...but I'm sure their are plenty of IS fans out there that will love it.

I think we should have went with this class instead of TCR...Im loving the scale look...Im was going to drop the Lambo for a "REAL" TC body...but I think the Vette or NSX will work...wish I could get some chrome Jaco Blues...hummm?
