In my part of the woods I am more respected for my paint jobs than I am my abilities as a racer. I have a lot of shells that I dont have as much time in as your NSX that I wouldnt race. I know about CFX and that you love to paint. I just hate to see them get beat up after they look so nice to begin with. I know it is life and it is racing. Hats off to you sir. very nice shell.

Doesn't Yokomo have an interior tray that is something like that? Tamiya might have a rally shell. Maybe HPI?

The Ford GT wheels do look nice.

You know I dont believe that an E10 is good for many things but it does a real good job of modeling a shell and set of wheels.

Its a very basic offering from HPI basically for noobs, kids or drifters. Or someone who might be all three. However it has a lot of cosmetic features. like a hex that holds a disc brake and a center screw in hub that somewhat conceals its self. If you are looking for a basic TC that is not very competitive and looks really nice for your well done shells then that would be a good choice.

Definitely my (and our ) go to chassis for all of our show cars....plus the adjustable wheel hex/width is nice to show off different offset wheels.

I threw in the idea to come out with a "dumbed down" version of the chassis (maybe solid shock links, no dogbones, diffs, driveshaft, gears etc) and offer it as a "display chassis roller"... we'll see what happens...
