Hi, I was finally able to get my hands on an HPI 200mm Ford GT body and
completed it today. The livery is just made up from left over decals. Regards

I always loved that body, but it is extreamly difficult to find. I would like to see more of those. Looks great.

Default HPI Ford GT

Hi, I had previously posted this car but it had the wrong wheels. After some
research I was able to find the correct wheels. Attached photos. Regards

Hi,

A couple of pics of my son Jake's new Protoform Camaro ZL1/XRay T3 USGT racer.

Thanks,

P.S. - Norman, that Ford GT looks great!

I finally got around to testing the new spec tire RIDE 24025 and I feel they perform nearly identical to the RIDE 24024 tires that I've been racing with for the past few months. The only difference is the tread pattern from what I can tell so far... as the 24025's start to wear, I'll be able to compare longevity.

The 24024's seem to be more squared off in shape and might be less prone to EGOD, but that's just speculation at this point.

What I like the most about both these sets of tires is that I don't need a drop of traction compound and I still get excellent traction on our medium grip outdoor asphalt track. The one time I did try putting some sauce on the 24024 tires, they actually got a little too soft which caused inconsistent traction.

@Bill,
Which ones are legal, or are they both legal, under USGT rules?

I bought the 24024's before the rule was put in place for the 24025's... it just took what seemed like an eternity for the 24024's to finally wear down so I could start testing the 24025's

The information is relevant in case (or when) a shortage pops up for a single source of tire. Not saying RIDE will burn us like HPI did... but it's always good to have options worth exploring.

Not all clubs follow 100% USGT rules and still allow open treaded tires.... plus there are several drivers at our local track who probably have a year's worth of HPI tires they want to burn through first before swapping over to the RIDE's.

over half the posts in this thread are related to bodies that are perfectly acceptable for local club racing, yet may or may not be used at a national event

Good point and good information for an alternative for those that use an "open treaded tire" rule

Correct, it was for RCGT that HPI created using 17.5's

As well as 4495 and 4790's I think. Then "boosted" 17.5 showed up and RCGT went away in this area due to excessive tire wear outside.

If so, hope they know what they are doing. Having driven Trans AM cars with 21.5 motors and open ESCs, if ROAR is hoping to get a class between trans am and 17.5 (Blinky) with this rule they must be smoking crack because IMO any GT car, even with treaded Trans AM tires, with a 21.5 & and open ESC (e.g., Tekin Pro with boost) will blow by any 17.5 blinky stock TC out there. I know some of the TRAM AM guys with boosted ESCs were doing it before the boosted ESCs were widely available & lugging 100 grams extra weight too.
