That, sir, looks incredible. Is that a USGT-legal body?

Should be legal for USGT and GT1/2/3 for the TCS guys.

The body is legal for TCS but not that chassis.

I remember that car but with the front spoiler like that and with my driving, I'll be replacing the body every race!

I'm in the process of painting one of these for my USGT car. I'm cutting off the front/rear splitters 'cause I know they won't last in a racing environment. I also cut off some material under the doors. The bonus is that it'll help the tires fill those huge fender openings by lowering the body more. It looks much more proportional now. I'll post some pictures later.

Couple pics of my latest USGT body, a Tamiya Subaru BRZ R&D Sport. I made several changes to it. I didn't use the "winglets" that mount on top of the fenders 'cause I knew they wouldn't last in a racing environment. I also cut off the large front and rear splitters for the same reason.

The good thing about cutting off the splitters is that it allowed me to achieve a decent ride height so the tires could at least partially fill the wheelwells. With the ride height required to run the splitters, it looked positively silly.

And sorry for the awful pictures. I'll see if I can get better ones...

And I'm still deciding which wheels I want to run.
