Thanks for all the pictures.
I was looking for rubber tires for this car as well since I like to take some nice pictures. On Tamiya's website, only foams are available.
For some suggestions for rubber tires that might fit, I would be thankful.

I don't sell my decals since they are all inside decals and expensive to produce and the waste is high to get it right.

Went to lemans 24h this year,and saw the group c cars race in pre race program.

Wow good job
I love this Chassis, currently running it both in a 21.5 and a 23 brushed (the best option) did a small modification on the motor holder plate to fit larger pinions, now can go all the way to a 21 on the stock gear.

The C is old but fast with fantastic grip, at WCRC I have rolled it over while overdoing the steering. Foam tiers last a long time, and chassis is height adjustable so tiers can be run down to almost 1/4 of their original size.

We are currently starting a Le Mans 24 minute series with the Southern CA F1 Guys (see the F1 alive and well at this forum) they run the F103 with the Le Mans body's, I run the C. It gets plenty of attention at every track we go to.

Congrats on starting this thread
I will post more photos latter.

There's nothing that compares to Group c. that's why I was disappointed that the tamiya f103 gt's didn't take off. I feel that wgt should have been a 235mm group c series. but that's only an opinion.

You should take a side by side photo of your Sauber Mercedes-Benz C11 & C12. Still need that Gr.C cockpit to add the K. Wendlinger helmet decals.

Me too, at least some of the modern Le Mans like the Audi R10 or the Pegeuot

Anybody still racing their C ?

Heres the Mini Z dressed up in a 757B. As you can tell by the missing head light covers, the big plastic front bumper and missing rear diffuser - it gets run frequently

Totally into the "C" style cars.
I grew up watching imsa cars on tv.
ESPN covered that series for years in the late 80's early 90's.

I would jump right into these cars if local racers wanted to run them.

I understand the Protoform Sophia is the body of choice, but just like TC, if you aren't running it, you aren't competitive. BAH. Give me a cool looking body over that mess any day.
Could not agree more.
My other beef with wgt is having to get all new gear to run 1c.
Should have been 7.4 with a 21 or 25.

Agreed. You can set the Tekin RS to work with a 1s battery, but then you need a 1s battery and a 13.5 motor if you don't already have one.

Leave it at 2s and you can run whatever you have laying around and only have to pick up a 21.5 motor.

However, the 25.5 motor is a great option. I've done some testing with one in VTA and for smaller tracks, it's great.

Just throwing this out there since we're on page 2 of the thread...

If you could design a Group C car from the ground up... what should it look like?

Typical 2wd pan car?

Stranahan Style pan car?
http://site.mawebcenters.com/stranah...Front_View.JPG

Tamiya F103 with a wider chassis plate?

Tamiya F103GT style car that uses TC wheels/tires?

Other ideas...
