What's your point? This was a discussion of bodies and why some people are crying that it's too limiting both for asthetics and performance.

This is a fun class, if you want to measure everything down to .001 seconds then go to 1/12th or TC but leave this class alone.
I have no idea what you are on about to be honest.

I really like GT10 racing, I have raced this class both in the UK and in the US and really enjoyed it.

Just got my pro painted b'shell (sophia) to go on the car now too!

Cheers.

I found a really good German website the other day that had loads of GT10 b'shells in it that I have n't seen before. I will try and find the site again and post a link for you guys. Cheers.

hope this is not to far off topic
have a gen x le coming (hopefully tomorrow it will turn up )
it will be strictly a fun ride as there is no 1/10-1/12 pan cars run here.
running on a large out door track with 2s and either 13.5t or 9t motor
only body i could get locally was a hpi corvette c6
is this body going to be totally crap ???
track is large and fairly wide open,and as im not racing in a class of other pan cars will this body work ok (doesn't need to be pure race handling)

It should be okay. Try to mount it as low as possible. You'll want to leave as much surface area as you can on the rear wing. It doesn't make a ton of downforce, but should be pretty neutral handling wise.

Generally the nose is to loo to clear the front shock tower. You could put it on, but it would sit really high. Especially the new WGT bodie that have come out.
