A 458 Italia would be sweet.

Anyone remember the Marcos? It would make a killer WGT, kinda similar to the Sophia.

Blargh.... I always vehemently hated that car. I do admit that it might look cool in RC form though

I dont know why the WGT class is moving away from cars like the BMW M3 and 911, which I always think of as staples in a "GT" based racing series.

But how about the BMW M-coupe? That shares a similar style to the currently popular WGT bodies? And probably would handle pretty damn well. I would think any car currently racing in the FIA GT1/GT3 series would make a cool WGT body... http://media.gt1world.com/gallery.php?season=2011

So how did the WGT racing go for those running indoor this weekend? I was out this week as I couldn't travel to the big Hurricane Race in Indy.

Seems like the Parma DB9 has become the most popular body at my track. I was the first to use one last year and set all the WGT track records there. Now about 80% use it.

There is an Italian company that I came across that makes the Panoz, but the shipping cost double the price. That would be a very cool body to do for the class. I can't find the link now..
