? What about inserts foam...and do they stock these at the track

The solaris tires are a premounted tire with the molded insert....yes Eric does stock them.

I think the USGT thread dropped back a couple of pages.

Mike, is this a 1/10th scale body? I looked for it on Exotech .....no luck. Any info on where you bought it? By the way your paint work is outstanding.

SpeedPassion sells that shell.

I believe it is 200mm, so you need something like +6 offset to make it look right.

Thanks! As Tim linked to it is speedpassion mazda furai but it is definitely 190mm. 0 off set wheels are a must or else the tires will rub. Body does not work well with large front shock towers- I had to make a custom lo-pro tower for my Pro4 so that the body could sit low enough on the nose. Aero is excellent though cos my race results are faster then the 17.5 sedan blinky class.

A picture with your post, when trouble shooting, will probably get more rctech help than without...

Thanks Mike, Kelvin and Tim, I have that body on it's way. You guys can really lay-down some serious paint schemes. Mike.....this body hopefully will fit my TC3 if the front shock towers aren't in the way. How did you lower yours on the HPPRO4?
