Beautiful build as always--isn't that a Can Am car?  Legal weight would be 100grams then?  


She's real fine, my 409!!!

I thought so--but the body looked like an "open cockpit"?

Aha thanks Tim, looking at the IRRA approved body list for GTC all I see are closed cockpits. So you are right. It's gotta be a Can Am.

It was a race prize, the flashing was already cut off when I got it, and it had no markings. All I was told is that it's a Kelly and it's on the legal bodies list.

 

Let me contact Noose and get the straight story. Good catch, Tim  :friends:

Tim wins the cookie - Noose says it's a Lola T163 (Can Am) and it's legal.

 

Thank goodness it doesn't need any changes to make it a Can Am. Maybe a little lead can be removed, but that's it.

Tested today on The Raceway's flat track, Courtney says it ran fine. He feels it would be even better with softer tires and more weight.

But he liked it and reported no bad habits. With tuning it could be a very competitive car.
