What does this mean? If they have a booth at the track selling bodies to anyone that wants to buy one then it is legal?

This has happened before I think it is a terrible idea. It will just lead to drivers showing up and abandoning (if it is the body is the body to have) their pro painted bodies for one color quickies.

I don't see the point of allowing a new body at the last minute. Am I missing something?

I think what boomer means is. If there is enough bodies in stock at local shops so everyone can buy. Then they will be legal, if only a select few can get them no. This is my take on what he said correct me if I am wrong.

I beleive what Rick is syaing that by this being the first year of this race and all the hype that it has been given. This race should have excellent magazine coverage and it'd be nice to see quality paint schemes in the coverage of the race versus seeing a bunch of one color wonders.

I agree with Rick.

Umm, that is not legal within the LV city limits as far as I know. But you are not that far from Reno if you want to drive up there for it. Oh wait, we are talking about painting RC bodies!!

That's one thing that drives me nuts. You go to a big race, or are reading coverage of a big race and you see a bunch of factory drivers running one color wonders out there on the track. It just looks like crap.

One color multi color bodies are not what this is about. Rc racing is about racing your friends & others. Having several colors doesn't mean anything. Some people choose to gear more toward their driving & tuning skills. This is only my opinion on the body subject matter.

To me, Pro drivers need to represent their sponsors. Their cars should look presentable. To me, that means having a good looking body on the car. Besides, most pro's are know by their paint schemes. Why do you think they all have their own schemes. For recognition.

About racing your friends and others... for most of us that may be true, but for those that have major sponser's it's not about that. It's about advertising and selling product. Maybe one color is fine, but they could at least put there sponser's stickers on.

i was kind of thinking that most factory drivers cars are hard for me to read logo's on them anyway, unless sitting still. the schemes are very nice, and cool to look at, tho!
