Jimmy, when you made the chassis manufacturer change did your paintjobs have to change too!? haha I liked the red/white/black paint schemes you had and now they're so... blue

Joe,

Since I'm a part of the "Blue man group" or "Blue Tang Clan" etc etc, I figured I'd switch it up a little. The kit I received from Tamiya was the Calsonic R35 so of course it had to be Tamiya PS-30 blue. I liked the color so much I stuck with it. I even painted my practice bodies for my truggy and buggy the same color.

The Vauxhall (Chevy Cobalt) I was running was a discontinued Kyosho body that K-America had in stock so I snagged the two remaining ones. They were for their gas sedan so it was 200mm. I loved the way it handled but soon found that body was too heavy, the wing was being scrutinized and the main reason....

It's not a Tamiya part.

Hey Folks, got a question. Our club has decided to go all out with RCGT and we're so looking forward to it as it seems to fit all our racers needs so well. Had our first official get together as a RCGT only club today and it was a blast !!
Anyway...a few posts back I came across some pics of cars with a RCGT / number decal. Apparently for one of the Speedtech meets. Can those decals be purchased with a random set of numbers?? As many of the bodies come without racing type decals, numbers are a problem and we are requiring them on all the cars. Any help would be appreciated.

I know Andyh has done some. I have seen them myself. Whether or not they are for sale I cant really say. But I think they had numbers and a really nice RCGT sticker and some small sponsor decals like STP and Holley. I would look at HPI or see if you can reach Andyh.
