Cool deal Dale. Now I have a more modern Vette to put on my car over the old C6 body that Kyosho furnished. Looks great!!!

This is great to see a new scale body for this class. I'm looking forward to the short wheelbase one next!

Thank you for the color charts!
Wow, didn't know that many colors were involved. I thought the rest were decals! I'll just spray yellow and black and put some decals for the rest lol.

RoketRdr;

Shorty version"look as good as" is going to be a pretty tall order. Those GT1 chassis have got some pretty funky proportions - so far from being anywhere near scale it's kinda scary.
Scale-wise.....GT1's are as wide as a school bus, with the wheelbase of a Volkswagen Beetle and the tire diameter of a Top Fuel Dragster slick.

About the only thing I can promise is that I'll try my very best.
