What a wonderful car! The TT-01E chassis went together flawlessly and is super reliable. I chose to paint box art because I've done two HPI Countach bodies in red; what a nice change. I removed the clear portion of the window decals with a knife and also removed the pop-up headlight marking decals. I have also chosen to lower the body one notch lower than instructed. My only gripe is with the width of the rear wheel/tire, it is way too thin imho!!

Looks really nice! If you put some aluminum tape over the lights in the inside, you won't get the 'red glow' from inside. Works well. Looks really, really nice though!!! Sweet!

There's just one thing missing on this car (like all the Classic cars pretty much all manufacturers make): A classic rim size and tire wall size. I think someone fixed that on his Lancia 037 by painting the outer bit of the rim black. Maybe it will work here, too. And the rear width doesn't look too bad, remember that the widenend arches will not allow a lot of suspension movement if the tires would fill them more

Nice pics man, welcome to the club Saving my light kit for a different project though- bit disappointed by the rear tyres too and the fact that you can't opt for the lights being up at the front. Great to see it on the fly
