Thanks!

I must say that a heat gun helped tremendously, especially for the curves and sharp corners.

Here's my "GT". Losi inside.

I must admit, it would of looked better with the taller HPI 26mm Pro Compound slicks. The RP's look too "low pro" and doesn't fill up the wheel wells enough.

Nice ride Dino. I love the wing. That body handles pretty well.

Thanks TJ. Yeah, I try to save all those Tamiya wings after the body is trashed. Just happened to have this one. Left the "posts" on the HPI body and it helps to support the wing. Kinda partial to the BMW and Benz bodies. They do seem to be pretty balanced.

Default BMW M3 GT2

Here's mine and my mates (jsr555) BMW's ready to commence battle in our local 21.5 GT championship. 2 Door GT Body, 21.5 Motors, open ESC, open tyres, but we race on carpet, so foams are the local choice.
