Better yet, get a SupaStox or a Mardave and do GT12 right. We're running GT12 in Madison and following the rules. One of the guys already has one of these and they are very nice bodies. This is a very cool body with the right size tires on it.

I run on asphalt therefore big tire is a plus fot me. Speedmind has 52mm of the rear tire that Icut to 48 which will look perfect with original wheel opening.

I run thw shell twice and my impression is that it cannot handle mod class but very stable and easy to drive with 10t+ motor speed

What would be the ideal tires' diameter for this body ?
52mm or perhaps 55mm? (front and rear)

I built mine up on a SpeedMerchant Rev7 with a 10.5 on 1s. Right now I am using Enetti tires that are straight out of the box. Getting a proper ride height was a challenge due to the tall sidewalls but the tires look correct for the wheel opening. Had some electrical issues on the first run but when working correctly the body was very neutral and easy to drive despite the tall tires.

GT12 tires out of the box are 48 rear, 46 front. I ordered 2 last night for my SupaStox. Sticking with the AMR for the Rev 8. The Contact tires have great traction and are the right width.

Just finished the painting

It's 1 of the thickest body I've ever cut....
I believe this would have great durability

Btw this is mounted on Tamiya RM-01X

Mostly done and cut for a GT12. Still need to mount the rear wing and add the decals.

I ran it on asphalt, this body do not have enough frontal down force to steer the car into high speed corner @ 4.5t motor.

To be fair, the PFM wasn't designed for use on asphalt nor with mod motors. It was made specifically for GT12 racing, which is 13.5t 1S racing on carpet using foam tires.

And for GT12, this body is incredible.
