Sorta like when the TC races used to look like a field of cars on the BTCC. Those were fun times.

I LOVE those different wheels and their colors in that USGT picture above. I'm getting into USGT carpet track racing, and all the wheels are black. Black wheels are not my favorite on real cars or RC cars.

We need to accept that USGT is beyond the point of no return. To go back to its original intent of actual scale GT cars is going to cut out Bittydesign, PF, Montech, Exotek and others.
BS

They'll make more bodies in the spirit of the new rules. They're all welcome to make new bodies based on real cars.

Maybe install a 10,000 rule. If there aren't at least 10,000 of those cars on the road, then the race versions are banned.

Westfield and Superlite make GTP style cars that are great for track days. They're also street legal. By the current standards, I should be able to run a Pro10 style GTP body. That's the slippery slope that ya'll are on.

The hyper cars need banned from usgt and wgtr. They look like TC blobs. If you want to run TC, then go run TC.

I'm in charge of the slope. You seem to be aware of hyper cars, show me how any of these bodies are a 962, or were you just using hyperbole to make your point?

Are you mad an Hpi McLaren F1 has always been legal? How about the Hpi Saleen s7, also legal since the beginning? The Hpi Pagani? The Tamiya Shaken? The tamiya arta garaiya?

If you want to object the scale realism fine, but the types of cars are consistent to what has always been allowed.

Maybe the point is that the bodies released in the last 0-2 years have started taking aero very seriously. Some of the most current USGT bodies are so aero efficient that a USGT car without one of the new bodies will find themselves finishing the race behind those with the more slippery bodies.

Umm ok.

Majority are making bodies to resemble real cars. P Zero is Pagani, Agatha is Lamborghini, Montech RS GT3 is a 911. If they become any closer they will receive a cease and desist order.

So not sure what part is BS to you.

Im known to run only licensed bodies, primarily Tamiya.. thatís my choice... Iíve stated my opinion in this thread on prior pages.. but have simply come to the conclusion that thereís no way back

We need to come up with a way to 'regulate' the stepped-on greenhouse and uber wedged noses..

Perhaps an overall body height mandate (like cough-ROAR-cough). And possibly a minimum vertical surface (width and height) at the front fascia/grille.. At some point in time moving forward, Grandfather in all current approved bodies


Otherwise there is a chance of many uber wedges under the premise of lack of licensing.. aka 21.5 TC with treaded tires
