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.
Well in my opinion i think people should ask before showing up with some dumb illegal body that'll piss everyone off on their first race day.
that's just my 2 cents. continue please.

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.

Answered my own question.
Thanks again guys!

Thumbs up

Hey USGT'ers!

Just a heads up for any of you planning on racing Spec GT at IIC in October, the PROTOform Lexus LFA and Camaro ZL1 bodies have been added to the approved list.

I'm thinking of doing the falken stripe scheme, albeit in different colours. Is that paint mask available to buy? I couldn't see it on the HPI website or come up on any searches?

The link in my original post went to a web page on the HPI website showing how to paint up your own Team Falken car. It included a downloadable paint mask file (in several different formats). I gave that file to a local print shop and they were able to cut the paint masks for me.

I'm guessing that since HPI changed ownership that they pulled that info off their website. I would suggest emailing HPI to see if they can send you a copy of the paint mask.

Anybody know where one can buy the d-compound xpattern tires for this class? I can't find them ANYwhere... building a scalespec car for my wife, but so far, frustrated trying to find things in stock.

Also, is there an exact wheel size and/or offset we need to use to keep track width correct? There are so many DOZENS of different wheels... all I know are TC dishes.

I have new unmounted X-pattern tires for sale. I'll check on what I have and will let you know tonight.

Thanks. The Porsche (and yours) does look good. I've got a local paint mask guy who should be able to whip one up. I'll contact him.

Anybody tried running these tires in USGT?

Vaterra 67x26mm

Interested in knowing if there are any alternatives to the xpattern tires from HPI.

pretty sure most folks are interested in the "Belted Pro Compound" tires, I know I will never waste my money on another set of "D Compound" again

I have found that the Integy knock offs are almost identical to the D Compound and I wasn't impressed with them either

On asphalt the belted Pro-compound X-Pattern are garbage. They squeal a lot and do not grip. They're worse than the D-compound tires. The non-belted Pro-compound tires are the faster of the X-pattern tires.
