Bert seems to post what ever pops in his head no matter how outlandish it is.

Has anyone tried the GSF-II yet, and how does it compare with other bodies? I've painted one up, but I have a couple of bodies to try first. I do like the vertical lines in the front wheel arches to line the front axles up, nice touch

I have not tried one yet, but would like to. I should probably bug Alex at Gripworks RC to bring in a couple of 0.5 gsf-ii bodies for me. The GSF is my favourite body, so I'm scared to go away from it. The reason i haven't ordered any yet, is cause i still have two unpainted ALS-R bodies, two unpainted Sweep STC6 bodies, an unpainted WRX, and an unpainted gsf.

Curious to hear what you think of the gsf-ii.

Tried the GSFII and I'm not a fan. Not as aggressive as the GSF.

Sorry buddy, but this RC stuff has converted me into a gram counter... No excess paint or steel parts.....
I just wish overdose RC could cut their titanium springs(#od1920) down a bit to fit my tc4, Ntc3 : that's over 7grams there to save !!! Wow...No wonder I switched to the gsf 0.5mm bodies.
I'm going to start weighing different brand shock oil next...Cheers...

It is normal in every 1:1 racing class to reduce weight everywhere on the car to get a tactical weight placement advantage. Only in RC you get laughed about optimizing in one gram steps...

They're talking about sub gram differences due to painting the pillars. That will have no effect on traction rolls.

If I say losing 100grams out my car will be a step forward, many here will disagree... I think it's a "everybody against BERT" issue rather than anything else... I just like what blitz does for my tc car, wtcc....
How much does one gram weigh around a 30mph or 70mph corner at roof height ??? I would suggest a thinner roof with no paint on it, but I can already see the rants coming......lol....

The problem everyone has with you is that you obsess over a bunch of little things but you hardly race. And the one video we have of you shows you crashing every 5 seconds.
