I would totally agree with you!..except I've been back in TC for almost 6 months and yet to paint my first body.. poor LTCR body has been in my trunk next to a Ford Mondeo 190mm body I don't have decals for :-(

I'm running a beater body that has 4 different sets of holes for different TC chassis.. Shameful.

Some clubs (including mine) will let you use pretty much any body for the Scale Spec class, as long as it accurately depicts an actual car. A lot of people run VTA bodies, while others run GT or Le Mans style.

There's already a class that puts emphasis on the "aesthetic" aspects of RC Racing - USGT. Some folks enjoy detailing their cars, others are simply concerned with how fast it is, without any true regard for the car's appearance. Fortunately, there are classes that suit all tastes - if you'd like to promote a class that emphasizes scale looks over performance, start talking to members of your local clubs and make it happen.
