Default At $156.50, would this be the MOST expensive custom painted lexan body for 1/10 TC?

A friend of mine sent me the link to this ebay auction. Will you pay $156.50 for this paint job? Cadillac CTS

Just want to make an assertion that I meant no harm to anyone. Just the curious thought spoke out.

Its a nice body, but for that much money it should be hand delivered by Barry Baker who will then qualify the car for you as well. I like having a car that looks great, but in the end, the best looking car is the one sitting on the top step of the podium. If that paint job will shave another half second off my lap times, I will take 3 please.

Ouch. Very expensive shell. think if I paid that for it I would never run it.

Almost as bad as Alain Levy and his Stratus 235mm shells he wanted to run at the Euros for that illusive advantage. He brought 10 or so making them commercially available at around €100 unpainted

kevin you should also think about putting your work on ebay. if people are willing to pay that much for custom painted bodies you should be able to retire in two years.

Maybe the guy paid so much because he thought he was getting 2 paint jobs for the price of one.....execution is one thing,design is another.....by blending those designs front to back....the designer should be executed....
