Well said!

This is the statement that should be at the top of the approved bodies list.

It should also apply to the body manufacturers..

Please do not forsake scale realism to create an aerodynamic advantageous body. If that is your intent, keeping making bodies for TC class

Unfortunately that is the reality. Guys running the newest X-ray chassis, hottest 21.5 and of course, a pfm-10 body.

This really shouldn't be as hard as some people are making it!

I though that this Body discussion was settled , there is a body list so use it.
I think since USGT does not replicate any one series, whats the Difference?
This makes me think 21.5 TC might not be so bad

Thanks Dale, it isn't that tough to figure out, not sure why so many have such a hard time .

BTW, loving your new Covette C7-R (as seen a few pages back)!

I'm positive there are a lot of the Exotek P-Zero USGT bodies out there since they sold out almost instantly. I'd like to see some of the paint jobs folks sprayed. If you own one, post a pic out here and show off that cool new shell (mostly so I can get ideas of how to paint mine!!)

Actually I thought this class was made for any body other than the standard touring car body that all look the same. The p zero is not that much different from the nsx body in design . A lot of the other bodies that are legal and fit the usgt description aren't race cars . I think what it comes down to is competition between manufacturers is good they will be forced to make better products to gain the sales .
