Only Rob King can say yes or no. I would think not since it resembles a can am style body. And it says in the rules. "Can AM or IMSA style bodies, similar to 1/12 or 1/8 bodies are also discouraged".

That to me is pretty clear that it would be not allowed.

Just my opinion..., but when you allow this:



You open the door to other non-production type cars...

I see it on stormer hobbies:



looks very 1/12 ish inspired.
If the above picture is that of the body in question then no that body should not be allowed to be raced. Again your local track can allow it if they feel fit but to follow the national rules that looks too much like a 12th scale body and thus not USGT legal .

This body and this style of car has been talked about in here before. The shape of this body is not any different than other bodies on the market. The problem with the other body in question is that it looks like a 12th scale body. Yes the door is open but if you want to drive a Mac truck in feel free but these two bodies are apples to hot dogs.

Yeah its been talked about before its legal to be raced. We understand its a concept car but again its shape does not look like a 12th scale or wedge body....its shape is no different than other production cars that are raced....think HPI Mclaren body...etc.

In the case of the first body, I would say it is not a true "GT" body: firstly it has a wedge style tail and secondly it is not based on a production car.

In the case of the second, it is a Grand Am Daytona Prototype it is not a GT car. Although it may look similar to some super cars like the Mclaren F1 and Saleen S7, it is in fact a prototype, a car built specifically for racing. It is not street legal, nor is it based on a street legal car. It happens to be branded as a Chevy Corvette because of its corporate benefactor, but aside from some styling cues and maybe it's engine, it has very little in common from the road-going Corvette. Personally I would not allow either on a national level.

Travis, where can I get a set of those...and do they have any offset rims

I just got a set of the dynamite tires to try out at our track. What struck me funny was when I pulled them out of the pack, they said ride right on the tire. Do you think these are still a different compound to the Ride packaged tires?
