I got it from this store on ebay. I get all my Tamiya bodies from this seller. Good prices, and quick shipping.

I love it but I dont think I could race a nice and rare body like that. I would have to just run it for show now and then.

Yeah, I haven't raced it yet either. I probably will eventually though. It just looks so nice sitting on my shelf! The body isn't that rare though. I'm thinking about getting a couple more to race with. The body kit is nice, because it has all the light buckets to hook up LEDs.

In the past, when I've run 200mm bodies i've used wheels with 3mm offsets and a 2mm spacer. Most of the 3mm offset wheels I've gotten from HPI come with the 2mm spacers included.

I agree...anybody paint up anything new for the Scale Nationals in May?...I would like to see the competition....

also I ran my TC5 in full RCGT this past weekend and was very impressed with it....we had a mix of full blown 17.5 TC cars with Tekin v203 and Black Dimonds..oh a KO or two...and I ran my LRP SPX on profile 4 at a 4.1 FDR and walked away the winner...sweet...

still looking for the best body to run...would be nice for the new Camaro to be on the shelf in time ....but my Corvette did very well...
