well i guess if you want to make your car one color with no backing and one sticker. go for it. im going to make a concious effort to make mine look like a race car.

even if it is a ZL1..

That's what I used to do. I would go all out on my VTA and F1 bodies. Heck I would get probably $150 tied up into my F1 bodies between paint and stickers. Several people started putting a lot more effort into painting theirs because they wanted to try and make theirs look as good too. They didn't spend the money I did but they still had some good looking cars. Effort is a huge part of it. It doesn't need to be a replica to look good and look like it could be a legit racecar.
