The oversize rear wing helps performance on a poor-grip surface that’s commonly experienced in club racing but also incorporates trim lines for sanctioned style racing. The “LTC-R” is pulled in 2 different weights of genuine lexan and comes with protective film, decals and wing mounting hardware.


Very nice! I think "this is it"!

What is the benefit of the two 'nub' thingys on the rear bumper? The Stratus 3.0 had them too.

Is it a handing thing? To help the air pressure behind the bumper (under the body)?

I'm looking forwards to picking one of these up.

I think that they might be there to add rigidity

Hi dale,

Is this shell based on a real car ?

Because if it's not, why bother providing a cutting line for the BRCA since the rules clearly state that the shell must be based on an existing model...

And if it's not we in the UK would be really grateful if your next rubber orientated shell would be based on a real car because to this date we have the choice of pretty much only the M6 or the MS6 from protoform...

Thanks

It's based off of a Lexus IS-F. I am sure it is not called Lexus due to licensing issues and what not.

Thanks for the clearance I can see the similarities in the headlights and front grill. Let's just hope that it'll be deemed a good enough representation and thus will get into our bodyshell list...

Looks like it's a cross between the MazdaSpeed 6 and R9-R.

This body was painted by Wes of Weses Designs.

Everything you see was draw by hand with Sharpie, masked with painters tape, and hand cut out by Xacto. Very detailed work!
