Still have an original unpainted TOJ. You would be surprised how small the rear kick up is. I doubt it would have enough rear downforce today. It was really designed to work with a separate rear wing, something I would like to see return.

Yes - The TOJ was great IF you had a wing. Most of the bodies really needed them back then. The funny part was that the TOJ was VERY realistic. It was only because it was rather dated that they used that as an excuse to go to the bodies like the LOTEC and Nissan.


The TOJ
