I have posted the below pic in the VTA Pics and Paint thread (http://www.rctech.net/forum/6638475-post1128.html)

The question has come up in the past about whether the Testors Model Master lacquer based paints will adhere properly to lexan bodies. This is a body that I raced for 17 weeks outside on an asphalt parking lot track with wooden barriers & plow discs. Needless to say it has seen it's share of beating and banging. As you can see, the paint is holding up better than the body. I usually back the Model Masters paints with Pactra paint. In this case I used Pactra Outlaw black as it fit in well with the scheme of the car.

A pic of my "RCGT" car after a class project where I added a microprocessor and sensors to allow the car to steer and throttle itself around the track. I've also raced it normally with rubber and foam tires and 8.5 BL-19-27-and mabuchi motors.

Yeah, little decal typo there. I was going to run the Work rims, but the front's have been on backorder for months. Once I mounted up the TE37s, they grew on me.

That is correct HPI 200mm body #7483. 3mm front offset wheels and 6mm rear offset wheels.
