On a larger or more sweeping track, I like the Mercedes CLK GTR, although I don't know where you'd find one, if they even still make them.

On a smaller track I like the Honda NSX GT.

Just suggestions! I've ran both on my 007 and the only problem I had was with the NSX rubbing a little on the front shock tower.

+1 on both counts - I've seen both work well, and the NSX was on a '007 ...

Here are two that work surprisingly well - the Toyota MR-S GT, and the Lotus Elise. Sure, they look like little bugs; but just like a bug, they're hard to catch!!!

Well RCGT is electric... and 99% of electric cars are 190mm chassis..

and if you use a 200mm body you need 3mm offset wheels for the front and at least 3mm offset in the rear if not 6mm offset... depending on the chassis and how you want the car to look
