The idea behind RCGT is "realistic" scale bodies.. So if everyone starts to look for the "one" body that handles best.. Then were back to TC class and identical bodies

My advice: run a body that you like and make compensations for its limitations.

Or stick with tc class and run Mazda 6

Bulls eye, but one thing for sure this body are not design for carpet or asphalt racing, unlike the 6, R, or F. That's the reason why I'm asking this ????, I'm not a very good driver and give me a body that is worse than driver is just a disaster waiting to happen.

Try the HPI Mercedes CLK-GTR body (pn 7046). Works very well, especially if you like extra steering.

RCTVLIVE had good luck with the HPI Ford GT Saleen.


Scale easy to paint and handled well for them. They used it on the JL10e from Ofna that was made just for that class.

you have an IFS-R ... why not try the Ebbro 350R?

also.. the last "non-IFS" Tamiya NSX (the Arta) is a great choice as well as the Ferrari 360.

I've been happy with the HPI Mazda RX-8.

But as you can see there isn't any one "perfect body" for this class.

Might as well drive a poo poo. Since we're on this subject, how about the Japanese Toilet?

HPI Lotus Elise for me (190mm).

Your right we liked it a lot. Here it is. It should be on in a few weeks.
