What is the lighting like at the race? I'll be bringing my camera and hope to get some actual racing pics but it's always difficult lighting indoors and I've found that most times a flash isn't the answer.

Jerry P is correct. It is a GTR body. More specifically, it's the Tamiya 51453 Nissan GTR body.

I was hoping to run the hpi m3 but I couldn't get one from tower. I happened to find a tamiya Audi R8 locally.

I'm guessing that your FDR can not be less than 4.0. That would make the 3.5 that I've heard thrown around for amateur illegal for spec GT. The closest I can get with my car is 4.01. Scotty or Kraig, can we get a clarification please?

Upon further review, it is possible for me to get a 4.0 FDR.... Assuming I can get my hands on the the correct spur gear.

If you haven't tried it, I recommend this website for figuring out FDR or roll out.
