I don't think that rally cars are considered GT cars. Maybe Rob can give us a ruling?

Consider it a USGT10 class. It's a combined class to help both GT10 and USGT cars compete with one another. I believe the rule specifics are on the EOS site.

For those of you who aren't in Texas and are curious: Our GT10 class is basically just like USGT, except it uses a spec brushed Tazer ESC and 27T Axial motor.

I just looked on the EOS site and just saw that. Wish I had known I would have built a car for usgt. I am going to be running usgt at the VTA southern nats in sept. this would have been good practice.

Come on, guys. Is it really necessary to ask for help deciding if a body is legal for the class? The answer should be in the name of the class itself, USGT. Not USRally, USHillClimb, USOffRoad, or USRecordBreakingGroundSpeedSetter.

I think, and it's just my opinion, that if you wouldn't see that body in the any of the Grand-AM Rolex or Continental Tire Series, keep in mind that the Daytona Prototypes have already been ruled out if I recall correctly, then it's probably not in the scope of the class.

Please don't stop sharing your pictures of your favorite cars and paint jobs...but the application of common sense goes a long way with the patience of many. I rarely make a post of opinion so don't take this as a bash in anyone's particular direction.

I love this class...it's fun to race and it's fun to watch. But the thing I love the most is that someone finally made "good use" of all the body shells that HPI, Tamiya, ProtoForm and the others were making, that weren't ROAR approved, and bring them into the spotlight. Let's not dillute that with other specific racing class inspired cars.

I would say the wing is out #1, it's not within spec. I don't really have a problem with the body per se, but it's not really a GT body.

It seems like it's a very good idea to ask for help on deciding if a body is legal.

The nice thing here is that it's not open to interpretation. Rob is the sole and final arbiter. No competitors' arguments or opinions are necessary. I like that.
