I think some Solaris rubber on spoke wheels (pre-mounts) would look better. Nice looking shell nonetheless.

Dig out an old 1/12th. We are trying to get it going so we have a place to race now that all the carpet tracks are closed.

Hey Lonny-
1/12th is long gone for me, but they are now running 1/12th road course on Sundays at the Gilbert Hobby town. You might check it out. Or there are a ton of different road course classes there on Saturdays. You can find info on www.az-rc.com

Hey, everyone! Just wanted to chime-in on this conversation to shamelessly plug our event lol Thanks mschumi101 for posting about it!

The United Sportscar R/C Racing Championship will be the first race of its kind to formally combine three class on the track at the same time! The three classes are USGT, Speed Passion LM-1 (Le Mans), and the McAllister Prototypes!

With the help of Gary McAllister, we will be introducing the McAllister Prototype Class during our race! After nearly a year of planning and research (I don't have much spear time lol), we decided to settle on utilizing the 17.5 Blinky touring car class as the building block for this class. 17.5 touring car is one of the most popular classes in the midwest area, so we wanted to still attract those racers, but yet still have the class fit in with the theme of the event. So just swapping the body to the DP bodies just seemed like a natural choice. Looking around the internet and R/C Tech, the general consensus is extremely positive with the setup. We will also be utilizing the Solaris Pre-Mounted tires as the legal tire for this class, since that is what most racers in the Chicagoland area use already.

For more info on our event, you can check out the R/C Tech forum link mschumi101 posted, or follow us on Facebook! facebook.com/unitedsportscarrc

We now have detail decals available for our Corvette DP and Riley DP bodies. The bodies will be shipped with the decals and the decals are available separately.

I vote run VTA,USGT and Prototypes with their perspective motors in the same race just like they do in fullsize road racing. THAT will draw in your crowds and racers

If you mean an MX-P Daytona Prototype, we have a trim line on the back of the body that should satisfy any rules, however I doubt that it matters on a DP body since the full size cars don't have much body work on the back. I have no idea about USGT rules....if there are any????

Default Corvette Prototype

Ran the Corvette this past weekend. Really happy with the way it turned out. I used the Action Motorsports livery. Looked great going down the back straight. I'll have to check out the stickies, they didn't come with mine? I did put the "M" on the side...
