I was wrong...kinda. The first factory GT1 had the multi print paint scheme and looked more like a street Porsche but the body we got is the second version of the Porsche GT1 and was much sleeker.

I think these bods will help our "curb appeal" with spectators. I have the urge too put one on the serpent. I have the hpi gt one on the p8c in the red and white colours I think Nissan used in the late 90's

That's what we said last year and some how the "thingie's" ruled...

How long will it take for guys to switch when they get beat by T-Bones 909 whatever?

(what I'm saying here is let's get an agreement to force Joe to run a sedan/GT!)

I think the cost and the fact that it is only 2wd kept it from getting going. F1 is kinda limited interest. The motor is bigger, a .28, I think. But the thing is heavy.

I hope someone in Australia get's it happening here allso. I have a couple of old Picco 1/10 2wd cars (RS600 Compact) one has shocks with alloy bladders, the other friction dampers, ball diffs both, the shock verion has adjustable clutch, they're powered by Picco .15 bb engines & are fun to drive. Alot of throttle control needed to not spin out. But would love to see this & a 2wd 1/8 class here.

I believe the V8's are coming to the New Track in Austin, TX. This Year.
It's one of the best full scale racing series to watch.
