That's what I was hoping it was going to be when I saw the preview on RedRC's FB page.

It's 190mm isn't it? So it won't work on a wgt car.

"This officially licensed product is designed to fit 200mm touring cars but will also easily fit your 190mm chassis with the use of wide-offset wheels or wheel spacers."

Thanks! As a matter of fact......I have another USGT pattern almost ready to convert to a mold. Should be out in 4 to 6 weeks.

Hope you guys like that one as well.

Not quite yet, unfortunately.

Regarding using the LFA in WorldGT, it's theoretically possible but the wheelwells were designed to scale to fit rubber tires with larger sidewalls. Using it on a WGT car with trued foam tires wouldn't look right, and "slamming" the body down would require trimming the front spoiler off the car-- also not ideal.

We're hoping the USGT enthusiast gives this body an honest evaluation. It's a really cool class.
