That's the tough part, finding something your eye likes, yet something with a decent balance to be drivable.

This make me to remind the foam tires era (almost 10 years ago), when HPI has only released the 200mm version nsx body, anyway the organisation allowed the competitors to use it, so it's the most popular body. We use the wider wheel, than the body was looked very fitted on the car, after we have to purchase 190mm one, doesn't fit so well, we have to try to put the car narrower, instead to change bodies:eb110 or mr2.
But i think this one which shown on site with mobil 1 decals is other one, if you could find the old one (without decals), this will make your car with best stability.

The Protoform Vectra is a 4-door. I don't think there ever was a 2-door Vectra in (full-size) production. It was a good shell though! HTH

The saleen works great with a Losi wing. I think its the one off the Alfa that I have on mine. Only problem with it is when it flips over it almost never rolls back on its wheels.

Don't forget the HPI Lamborghini Murcielago. Looks very pretty and has a good aerodynamik.

WAAHH, you mean that Murcielago, I am sure it's beautiful, but I don't think about its stability and handling is good for serious race?
I think that one is more for the collectors.

Ben, I have an uncut unpainted Caddy if you'd like to pony up a few old school arms for it? Also, the Protoform Vauxhall Astra would be a nice choice. LMK if anyone has any...

That is a 2 door body I'd like to try. Where can we get some of those??

Hustler, how many pairs of custom lowered AE front ends would it take to trade for that Caddy body? I have a few sets in stock. LMK.

Not sure, it's not in production anymore. I have one and am searching for more. I'm not sure how they'll perform, but I think they'll feel more like a regular TC body rather than the wedge of cheese we were running last season. Also remember that they allow 200mm bodies, so any of the 190s will unfortunately be at a disadvantage...

Maybe 3? Has the Caddy or the Dodge been Summit GT-approved yet?

if you want a real race car then a Corvette C6R will do. I'm not sure but I think it has won the most over all races since summit started Speed GT.

Also the body rule was set so that we would have real type GT style cars, so if its being raced in the LeMans or any GT style race there should be no problem with it on the summit speed GT circuit.

I have a Maxda body and everyone wants to shut me down. I'll try the Caddy.

Hustler, I trade you. Bring the stuff Sunday.
