Thanks, I had to come up with a paint scheme to match white rims.
It handles not bad. I didn't race it, I only tried it between the heats.
I didn't do to many changes to my foam setup. I still have 6 deg caster blocks and short camber links. Feels better than my vintage car.
By next weekend I should have it all converted.

Here is an HPI Nissan 350z NISMO GT- 200mm part #7485

I painted it as recommended using:
-RC254 Pactra Racing Red
-RC262 Pactra Indy Silver
-RC250 Pactra Outlaw Black (Rear wing/light cups)

HPI molded lines in the body so you could tell where to mask for the red/silver, which was a nice surprise. If you use the supplied decals, pay attention when applying the red decals in the rear, which was really the only hard part of this scheme. Most of the time was spent applying the stripe decals. Other than this, it was a fairly easy body.

That Eclipse body was the sh*t I ran that thing back in 2000 on my RS4 Rally and it was a pretty decent handling body as long as you used the more race-inspired wing not the one that curves around the back end.
