Would definitely be a nice display body for a car.
Consider if you buy a pro paint job it would be about 50-80.

I'm not sure if this rule applies everywhere, but here you have to have transparent window.

Right. I'm sure it would make for a great "club race" body but if your particular club is super strict on regulations it won't cut the mustard. Large events too.

Cutting out the windows and adding lexan should not be a big issue.. i think.

It looks great.

That's a heavy Speed6. My Speed6 LW with wing and paint, weighs 87g.

My Speed6 is not the LW version, that's why.

I just thought to mention this as there was suggestion to use it on big event where it should have big advantage.

Well, I haven't studied rules that well to know if that is permitted. One thing is for sure - at events where only approved shells are allowed this is a no go.

I have to admit that at club level it can be very nice shell to use.

Also, the wing mounts are missing when compared to a speed 6. Nonetheless looks nice, might be hard to spot on track though

I thought I was coming in here to get a good laugh at some hack carbon-fiber taped/painted body shell... but Im actually impressed with the finished product.

Very impressive, although I don't see the point of it at the moment. Again, very impressive For potential buyers, only 40 minutes left
