I can't wait to get a few and paint em up for the Vegas warmup at CEFX.

They make tires that aren't made of foam? Learn something new every day.

Body looks good...

Oh trust me, I would prefer running rubber tires year round. But once it gets cold in the states, everyone runs indoors and puts foam tires on everything. Even their offroad stuff... Sucks...

Well, almost everyone in the States.... we run rubber all year long in Fla, as I am sure they do in the other warm states....

Looks like a Parma Alfa with a bit of Pontiac G6 mixed in.

I'll give one a shot on rubber tires. The Pontiac G6 felt real good when I ran it on rubber tires. I'm currently running a Strat3.0 Carpet on my pavement ride & it gets the job done.

Dont see why so many people car how realistic it looks. If you want realism then you can buy plenty of more life like ones but they just won't be as race orientated. If you want a slight advantage you buy this, no-ones forcing you to get this.

TC was supposed to be a scale oriented class.... It no longer is... Some people don't want TC to go the way of 1/8th and 1/12th scale. I think it's going to go the way of 1/10h GTP soon enough, dead...

Dale, nice body btw... I'll be giving one a try this coming carpet season....

Don't care what is that copying from or name...it is a good looking body, just like those prototype cyber cars from the auto shows...
Dumb question here.......this body look like a 2 doors coupe, does ROAR or IFMAR still enforcing 4 doors seden body only...? Or we can add couple black lines and handle stickers and make it 4 doors...like the Mazda RX8 little rear doors style.

Rookie,

In the ROAR rulebook under 6.1.17.2.1, bullet point #3, two-door sedan bodies are allowed as long as that body style had competed in the full-size Touring Car Series. This is their rule, but what is the use of it if the only bodies on the approved list are 4-door sedans and then the list be limited to 3 or 4 bodies.

Exactly, If you like realistic cars...run those...if you like race oriented bodies, run something like this.
