Thanks guys!

That ER-1 from Thunder Tiger has a 340mm wheelbase. What GT car are you putting it on?

That body is too narrow it won't work. The spec said it 10" wide.

I like the scale appearance of the Kyosho BMW, but I also want to get a second body that's sleeker and more exotic. Probably pick out one of those Deltaplastik bodies Bill started bringing in, there are lots of exotic supercars to choose from.

Yep, he has a bunch of them. Hard to swallow that $99 and I like to paint. But I might pick up one for cool pics.

I really cant remember, it was a tt site but not the US one ? it was in pdf form but now I cant find it LOL?,Yeah TT US is useless, the er1 like SNR said is to narrow,I had the subaru one way back in the day, and I even narrowed the hell out of my GTP and still couldint get the tires not to stick out,you need to look for TT EB4 bodys,towers had the xsara and I bought the last 2 and now they have it listed as disco'd - and it was listed under 1/10 not 1/8?,so I contacted TT US and they said that was their error and will have that corrected ?

With licensing, tooling, material, manufacturing and labor costs it would be impossible to do.

Unless........... you didn’t acquire any licensing, used inferior lexan materials and outsourced all manufacturing to take advantage of child or slave labor to produce a bootleg product.

No thanks, the GT Warrior body is fine as is, and its made in America!
