I think its the tires... those X-patterns don't grip too much.

My latest car before last weeks charity race at The Hobby Shop in Dayton, Ohio.

It doesn't look as clean today as before the race but not too bad. I didn't hit that pretty GSR car so all was good!

It's been a while since I posted anything been having problems with my wrist from an automobile accident 21 years ago but it's feeling better now.

Here are a couple bodies I painted for the Tamiya TCS race in Jackson Nj

The Corvette C6 handles well, also.
Of the three, I would choose the Lexus for a big track.

If you are talking at The Track at Winthorp Harbor it seems the shorter type bodies seem to work the best there. I have yet to see a Camaro race so I cant tell you but if its a shorter body then it would be worth a shot.

well most use the Solaris Medium tires...the mediums and the hards are the spec tire for the All-Star series races. If you are going full USGT then the x-patterns are the best all around tire but the solaris tires work a little better and last a long time with 21.5 power. Last year I ran 1 set of solaris mediums all season and I plan to do the same this year.
