thinking of running 40Rs up front and 32 rear. Think that will be a good combo? It's pretty warm(hot) here now. Still need to decide if I will need to use different inserts.

No kidding...WTF!?! I ended up painting a Porsche body and am 1/3 of the way through decaling the Studie Glad livery, which is somewhat of a pain. If they change the rules to something that is actually FF I'll be

Yesterday, I heard that one of the reasons the Porsche was chosen was that the front bumper does not need to be trimmed. Also, it appears that the body should have no fitment issues.

still debating what body to use if I get this car. From the looks of it, seems like the HPI integra will not fit due to the gear cover protrusion. Maybe I'll just take the cover off and hack the motor mount...

Also, what rims are those? Trying to look around for a good 24mm spoked rim that won't crack on the first hit... Tamiya rims tend to be brittle at our track.

Thanks

Thank you! With Tamiya bodies like that available I have to wonder why they specified the Porsche body for TCS...

So why not leave the body open then, or allow ones off a certain list?

Not sure. You can call Tamiya American and Talk to FMW about it.
