I just wanted to chime in...I have our 10R5.1 and I am using the 190mm Protoform Camaro with the CRC tires no problem with fit. Its the original Camaro but I am going to try the new one Since it has more steering. That is the one thing that I would like just more corner entry steering. I have a few more changes to try and hopefully it will all come together.

Can someone tell me how to post a photo other then giving a url, or is there a way.

If 190mm bodies fit, that's great. I don't have a WGT class locally, so I was under the impression that the WGT Pan Cars were 200mm wide.

The backspacing on the rims makes the cars a little narrower than 200. I put a 200 Nissan GT-R body on and it's over 5mm wider than needed on each side, closer to 7mm.

I can't believe Mario is running anything but this body. It should be added to the list for specifically that reason if no other. In fact the rules should identify it as a "Ficco specific subset: allowed...nay...REQUIRED if your name is Ficco".

I bought a new chassis and the WTF parts to convert it (thanks Justin P!!) and am looking forward to debuting the car this weekend at the Midwest Indoor Championship. I raced WGT the first year it was "out" and it did nothing for me. Was content to let others derive what fun they could from it. When the guys were talking about this class I kinda rolled my eyes (on the inside, of course) and figured I'd take a pass...until I saw them at our first club race. Ordered everything up, they look too cool out on the track!

Congrats Brian, you guys have a winner here!!

Gary,
I did a test fit last night of your Jag XKR, Mx-Stang, andv1970 Firebird on my CRC Gen X-10 and CRC SE cars. For me, the XKR was too tight, the Mx-Stang would work, and the Firebird fit great. I'll check some other chassis and see how they fit.
