Scale Spec wing question...

The rules say:
"... GT bodies may run included wings, or option wing sets that emphasize scale appearance. Wing size for all: maximum of 10mm height, and side dam, 40mm chord measured from top-rear of wing to front leading edge."

I have a feeling my Subaru wing isn't legal, due to height. But anyway...


Would this one fit the "option wing sets that emphasize scale appearance" clause? IMO it would.

No.

Having one motor keeps it spec as possible and eliminates the illusion of a motor of choice.

This is measure in the exact same way as a touring car wing. This measurement is wing size. This rule has no correlation to mounting height. Mounting height is still determined by ROAR body rules and the top of the wing must be level or below the top of the roof of the car as measured with a level.

Your wing must be able to pass through a 10mm x 40mm hole. We left the same cord length as touring car (40mm) but the side dam height is half of that of a standard touring car. If you cut on the lines, it probably is not legal.

The wing set you linked, HPI85288 would be a legal wing. I understand there is some perspective to this rule, and someone would argue that wing would look fantastic on a 69 Camaro but it's obvious and common sense to me that wing is for a modern car, GT car, etc, and not keeping with the scale appearance of a VTA car. So throw it on that Subaru!

For anyone who's read this far, I saw a pretty amazing Ferrari body by Tamiya that would make a fantastic Scale Spec car... http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXCPWY&P=7

I'd say so. That's about as scale as it gets!

It is Tamiya Ebbro 350R. The roofline and the wing are about the same height but it is banned at Tamiya Championship series races.

The reason they banned it was because if its aero profile, and for GT2/GT1 it would've been the body of choice, which would've meant you'd see 10 Ebbro 350R's in the A main, instead of a variety of bodies like they want it to be. Honestly, I'd love to see it in our scale spec class, good job on the body!!!

What type of Subaru bodies are allowed for the Scale Spec Class (GT)? I saw a mitsubishi body last race, but I don't remember any Subarus.

Also, what tires would I have to pair it with?
