If you want to get into the prototype and gtp bodies consider a f103 chassis. a lot of those bodies won't fit a touring car chassis. the f 103 is 200 mm and has endless parts and knowledge support. I'm working on mounting a Daytona Corvette body to a f 103 right now and there are absolutely zero fit issues. all you need to do is convert the front bumper from a wing and possibly modify the rear body posts depending on the shell you want to use.

Or, Associated, CRC, Serpent, Speed Merchant and several other manufacturers make World GT pan car kits which will work perfectly and look pretty familiar to an Ex 1/12th scaler.

Yeah, a pan car would be a pretty simple solution, however for some reason I have it in my head I want to use a TC car as a base.

Raced my medium downforce Protoform P35 for the first time on the weekend. On a track with not a lot of grip the car seemed to be pretty hooked up in the rear, could even have used a little less gurney as I had some high speed push but overall very driveable.

You run the P35 with gurney??
Dayum...That much give a lot of downforce at the rear.
Most of us don't use the gurney on the P35 as it has to much drag then.

Yeah I never did with the 905b Hi Downforce but seeing as the p35 came with it I thought I'd try it out. I didn't have a lot as you can see from the pic, and I cut out the two holes at the base of the rear wing to cut down on drag. Running 2s 13.5t Boosted.
The track was technical with a pretty short straight so it was fine, however for our home track which is a lot faster and flowing I will remove or at least drop it by half again to get a bit more steering.

Default New Class at Local Track

Hi, This year at our local track in NC we run a Le Mans class with following
rules.
Any Pan car 200MM wide or FI chassis like Assoicated 104LM
Must use Le Mans type body with emphasis on Realism.
Any type of brushed Motor with 5000 MAH NIMH batteries
Any brand Foam Tires with your choice of compound.
Any Speed Control.
This was done to keep the cost down and makes for a very fast and
competitive class.
Attached photos of my CRC GenX 10LE which has given me some wins
and TQ's. It is powered by a modified 7turn brushed motot and Novak
ESC,
Norman

has anyone run the McAllister Corvette Daytona Prototype on anything?

#289– Corvette Daytona Prototype
1/10th 190mm body Low profile, realistic,
top level road racing body for 190mm Touring Chassis

I'm trying to work up some detail decals for this body - and would be interested to know if/who else runs this shell.

I wonder how the FGX would work with these. I'm a sucker for scale.
