Couple pics of my latest USGT body, a Tamiya Subaru BRZ R&D Sport. I made several changes to it. I didn't use the "winglets" that mount on top of the fenders 'cause I knew they wouldn't last in a racing environment. I also cut off the large front and rear splitters for the same reason.

The good thing about cutting off the splitters is that it allowed me to achieve a decent ride height so the tires could at least partially fill the wheelwells. With the ride height required to run the splitters, it looked positively silly.

And sorry for the awful pictures. I'll see if I can get better ones...

And I'm still deciding which wheels I want to run.

Here is a site that I found that contains alot of different races. Click on each race and they have multiple pics of each car that ran in it. While most of the cars are not available in 1/10 bodies, they have paint schemes that can be laid on most any USGT body we have. So, if you have been trying to come up with a fresh scheme this site has plenty.

here is my gt car. yes im running the 458 just cause is so damn sexy looking. car is pretty fast but needs some setup work. our track is a temp track so its hard to get enough practice and setup time.

the black and the white wings are the tamiya option wing set. they both have way to much rake on them so i have adjusted them so they sit almost flat now. they do create alot of drag but they work very well.

the red wing is an hpi wing and i have not tested it yet.

Nice, let us know what you think of this body please. I have one waiting for me at my lhs to try for our outdoor racing. I hope it handles as well as my R8 does.

I've been running this Ferrari Enzo body for a while in USGT, it does a really nice job of self marshaling itself with the rounded top. I screwed up my yellow paint job by backing with silver instead of white so it's not worth showing here, but the factory sample is pretty cool to look at:

Default Ferrari 360GT

This is an oldie but goody I thought you guys might enjoy: The pic is of one of my old cars-this one from 2005 and is of a Kyosho 200mm 1/10 Ferrari 360GT body on a Mugen MTX4. All MOMO graphics are painted. The only stickers are the Ferrari badging and rear tail lights and exhaust stickers.

its pretty decent. i had to back off the rake on the wing alot. it was too much drag but the wing really helps alot. body has good downforce and steering and has good top speed. we are still on carpet so i wont know how it is on asphalt for another month at the least.

Cool, thanks for the feedback. It doesn't come with that wing does it? I have some proline wings I plan to use with mine so I shouldn't have the rake issue that you have. Thanks again.
