It was Scott Black. He peed in my cheerios. Take him to Beale St. I'm assuming that's pretty sketchy?

I was exaggerating for effect. It worked!

There's three things in this world Crispy doesn't like, hurricanes, world hunger and lexan car bodies that are "marginal" in his determination for USGT. He's got a thing about them.

I want to airbrush him a special Corvette Daytona with "Crispy Racing" on the side just to see if he'd run it in USGT or stomp on it...

(You know I'm just messing with you Gary.)

I don't mind hurricanes, I live in Indiana.

Instead of the Corvette, why don't you paint one of those Shaken 408Rs. I hate it even more. Yellow and white please.

Not no way, not no how.

Even the low volume supercars (Pagani, McLaren, etc...) are pushing it.

The fact is, the GT part of USGT is irrelevant to the powers that be.

That's fine. We can move on... provided no one says "it fits the class".
As stated in some earlier posts....there is no "one body" that has been shown to be the body to beat in USGT. I think the simplest way to understand the body rule is "No Touring Car bodies and no Truck bodies". If you have a "special/magic" body that will kill the field, More Power to You!!!!

Soooo you hate a car that ran in the GT300 series with ferrari, porsche, Lamborghini and don't feel that this car should be run in the GT class? Like I said, the "infamous" Saken 408R. Or is it just the fact it is not a car made in the US and because the class says US-GT it must be a US made GT car???? I guess I don't follow what you are looking for.

I think those are a bit sketchy as well, but after he tore apart my last post I am ready to piss him off on purpose so guess what. It fits the class!

Not on the accepted Touring car list
Not a truck

Just used Rit dye. The orange was sunshine orange and left em in about 1/2 hour. Black dye the same length of time. Just bring the water up to a boil, then turn it down so it just simmers. Those black wheels sure would look good on a new Corvette body.
