Those HPI Focus bodies are only listed as 200mm, so some good offset wheels must be in use there?

Glad I got you meet you at the F'n Race CUDA. You don't see to many "Muscle Heads" at these things. I figured being FWD, the HPI Focus body was my only option for an American car body for the FF03. I'd love a rare, discontinued Tamiya Focus or Mondeo,but I can't see paying $50-80 just to be smashed-up (especially with my driving skills ) Obviously a 190mm body would fit alot better, but since we're running 24mm Solaris,I put a set of 3R 7mm hexes to widen it up a bit. For any non-spec racing, I'll probably mount up a set of off-set 26mm wheels/tires. I'm getting a TL01 L/A together that I plan to run rally with the same Focus body. I hope Charlie decides to get that going at Cal as well. Should be alot of fun

Then pick one up at Speedtech. I hear they're going to be discontinued as well. For $19.99, you can't go wrong

Cuda, I didn't realize that was you. We used to run together down at OCRC back when the SC10's first came out. I remembered seeing the chassis braces in your sig. Pitting with Jarosz....good times.

Andrew, I remember you too, me and Jarosz used to throw Losi vs AE jabs back and forth. All in good fun, he's a great guy.
So glad that SC10 chassis snapped, got to rub that one in for a loooong time.
Helped support the racing budget with the braces for a loooong time too.
Yep, good times.

Oh yeh, got my Escort body.

1 day, Speedtech rocks!

Now, about the rear wing, can't get a grip on the install or the cut lines.

Tape on?
What about that extra square piece that has dimples that match up with the dimples in the rear window?

Fordmikedude or P Lodude got a close up shot of that sucker?
Can't tell from the earlier pix.

Thanks in advance!
