Fisrt let me say I like the body, but I am concerned how the bodies are starting to all get a long pointed nose. Not long before they are LMP bodies, I hope this doesn't end up being the case. Other than that, I like having another option out there.

Is that 104mm high? I agree, the nose looks stretched and the overall height looks squished. Kinda like somebody stretched the silly putty. I do like the red, though.

That's the way the cars that race in the series this class was molded after all look. The Vette and The Aston Martin are the class of the field in GT-1, and they have that long-nosed look, as does the Porsche that's been the staple of sportscar racing for DECADES. I don't think anything in this class looks remotely like an LMP car. LMP cars are currently all mid-engined, and most are open cockpit cars.

Would the folks that are concerned that this class is looking less realistic please tell me exactly what kind of cars we're supposed to be emulating? 'Cause if it's sportscars, I think Dale and Gary have pretty much nailed it.

Now somebody tell Chicky to get a DB9R done.........

Wonder how rear downforce is with the wing pictured? It is a good looking shell. Rule makers should add more bodies for the big races like most clubs do.........

gary, awesome..

to the haters
gimme a break, that is about as good as it gets in scale racing.... the point of the class is to race GT based cars at an affordable price.. have you actually seen an lmp? they look like something that aliens might show up in one day.. they work great for all out racing regardless of scale but... these cars i'm seeing look great should offer a modicum of performance and downforce allowing the cars to actually work.. cars that dont work will never bring folks into the hobby.. these beat the hell out of touring bodies...

Gary, great work. That may replace my old favorite Olds stocker that you used to produce. What was that, B-151 or something? Again, nice job!
