Well as you have the TA05 you have a bigger choice as you can fit the IFS inboard shocks to lower the front of the chassis.

The Colt Toyota GT1, Colt 911 GT1 and the Colt Porsche 962, K Factory GTP and Yokomo GTP were all designed for nitro tourers so should fit electric tourers no problem but might look a little wide as they are made for 200mm wide cars..

There are also the McAllister Daytona, Sebring and Flying M, all designed to fit electric tourers.

that's for the feedback, appreciated.

it can't hurt to order one and then see what the reaction from your wife will be.....look at it as a way of learning more about your relationship if and when she notices.

I have some of those Group C bodies and I miss the real Group C racing. I got them to use in some of the M.A.N.E. Eclipse chassis I have. I like some of the bodies I see here. Good stuff.

Yes, can't forget those either. Racing seemed better back in those days. Raw power and real guts lol. Also, kind of an off topic thing as I'm following F1 again,I noticed that last season Jenson Button's car lost its power steering in one of the races and he retired that race because of it and I thought it was kind of a BS move. As I remember back in 1994 and before, a lot of the F1 cars and also the Group C (And IMSA GTP) cars had no power steering. This got me thinking that maybe this new breed of racers are a bit soft lol.

Good thing a few hard core racers still races their Group C and IMSA GTP monsters.

Have you ever tried to steer a car that has power steering and that fails??
It is much harder to steer then a car that hasn't got power steering at all.
This is due to the design of the steering rack.
It ain't BS that he retired as the car would be undrivable or if he did he would end up in the tires or barriers.
