Yeah, I believe you're talking about the silver McLaren next to the green one.

The Mazda Furai is lower then my GT300 408R car. He used a different car in concourse so it wasn't out there for the pictures. I don't think he used the concourse winning body in the races. Anyways, I know my body is lower then most being that it's a tamiya IFS body... But that Mazda was next to mine and it was most definitely lower. Do I care? Nope. Did the lowest car win? Nope. Was it the driver and setup? YEP! Great racing Matthew. I think Justin was pointing out the way some of the bodies were cut more then anything. Or I maybe he likes to get the USGT community panties in a bunch and stir the pot for S and G's.

Both but was just pointing out that the camaros still look great cut lower than intended and also the front air defuser didn't seem to have any impact on handeling since so many fast guys seemed to chop it off .... heck I chopped my off on the honda HSV I ran and car was amazing all weekend but between getting a good run in qualifing or the shakes (in round 1 with Tim Ski on my heals ) couldnt put it together till my B main run

Here is A2 from this weekends race. I had a issue with my memory card so this is the only one I got. Race 3 was even better.

Now we just need that middle guy to use SP and it would have been a sweep for us :P

I agree the Camaro's look much better lowered now if we need to adjust the rules to eliminate this from happening is another issue. As you can see it was mainly a cosmetic type change as the cars with bodies lowered did not hold any advantage at all. Again no prototype body won or even made the a main other than the Mazda Furari....top 3 at the nats were HPI Mclaren F1, HPI Lotus Elise and Tamiya Shaken 408....TQ was a HPI NSX.

I liked the mclaren, but i thought it had too much push on the nose compaired to the rear. Im guessing if I got a spoiler other than what came with it, it could be better. For those that run that body, what rear spoiler do you use?

Alright. New to USGT here. I'm not looking to start any kind of wars or anything here. I've been running VTA for a while and feel pretty good with it, just working on driving line mainly.

What are some things that I should be aware of for USGT?

I picked up a TC6 last weekend that was setup for GT but currently has the old spec tires which I'll run for practice sessions to get used to the class, speed, and other things.

Thanks for any help or tips!
