Further Description/Back Story My 8 year old son Jakob recently had a birthday party. One of the gifts he received was a Lego Chevrolet Corvette C8-R kit. I saw it and was immediately inspired. My local track, the beautiful Jackson RC Raceway in Jackson, NJ is about to start its season with the incredible assistance of Jersey RC Racing Promotions and I need a new body for the season. I assembled this Tamiya TA-08 Pro Kit for our USGT class and was looking for something new. I ordered the body and set to making a matching set. I think it came out great. This is the cleanest it will look all season!
