Well got my chance on running the body, and man its corner speed is good, the first night I took it to TQ Raceway in Chino and it really had some downforce so much that the chassis was bobbing up and down off and on power when I did a spring change on the rear. I had a really bad traction roll going into the sweeper and lost the side winglets and from there the body was losing the rear end side bite. I went on Sat to Cal Raceway for some asphalt running and without the winglets it was fishtailing, I was working on suspension grip most of the time and didn't work on the wing when I should have but on Sun I finnaly worked on a wicker and side wings and the car tracked a whole lot better out of the corners and the corner speed was back, but I also got the push when I worked on getting that rear grip so I need to go back on my setup to get the better balance on the body but man it was fast on high speed corners and I pan cars get out of my way as I was closing in on them hard. I raced it GT10 and won but there were some debaters about the body in the class.

Got mine painted up! Such a good looking body, with a scale looking paint scheme I think it may fit into USGT! It would be a perfect body for TC mod if it were legal, it looks good with dish wheels too.

That looks fantastic man. All these scale bodies looks soooo much better with "scale" paint.

Thanx! i dont think that its going to go over to well in USGT although with Scale schemes and if you had a few together on the track it can be passed off like 1:1 as in they run them both on the track at the same time.

Can we vote R2 or Mantis in as president of a USDP Series? !!!!

It would be nice to have a USDP Series...an actual current U.S. road racing series.
