The game has now changed...
 
Ralph Thorne Racing proudly presents 'The Renegade,' our newest and fastest 1/24 GTP body we are manufacturing in-house. Appropriately named, The Renegade breaks all of the rules. It's lower, wider, longer, and just flat-out faster. You will find it is loosely based on the 2017 Cadillac DPi-V.R prototype that you currently see competing in the IMSA racing series. It features a unique recessed body pin area and front wheel sticker location that makes the front wheels easy to align on both sides. This body truly blends a modern and realistic race car appearance with superior race-winning on track performance. It creates big time downforce without adding rear drag, allowing you to decrease your laps times and turn more laps, plain and simple. We were absolutely blown away during testing and we know you will be, too.
 
Once again this is an original copyrighted design from Ralph Thorne Racing with all rights reserved. We don't backpour or copy any other manufacturer's designs.
 
Compared to our Warrior body, the Renegade is a little longer, wider, and creates much more downforce.
 
They are available in .005" and .007" thick Lexan. Each body comes with a window mask and a pair of front wheel stickers. Please note that we start from .005" and .007" material, so it will be thinner on the sides. As always we strive for quality pulls with even side thickness. The new body also features a cut line to assist in body trimming.
 
Retail price is $6.95 each plus shipping, if ordered direct HERE. Raceway pricing is available and bodies are on the way to ERI now.
 
If you purchase five or more bodies direct at full retail, an extra body will be included with your order as a thank-you!
 
Please note the bodies will only come in retail packaging when purchased by a raceway or if specifically requested on direct orders.

The Renegade has been putting in some work recently. Most notably by picking up the win in the fierce GTP class at the recent FNRS race at Tri State Raceway.

Dave Gardiner also piloted the Renegade to back to back wins the last two weeks at Marks Model World in a field where 7 of 8 cars were RTR bodies.

Congrats to Bud Greene as well for picking up a win at The Dungeon in Alabama, also using a Renegade.

Down South Donny Caron has been a regular podium finisher contending for wins and had this to say, "Thank you this Renegade body you build is hands down the best body I have ever ran".

It was another big weekend for the Renegade, this time down in Florida at the FNRS race.

 

13 of the 16 cars in the field chose the Renegade as their body of choice.

The entire A-Main was made of Renegades.

Terry Tawney piloted his Renegade to a TQ.

Congratulations to Jimmy Johnson and Don Gunn for using a RTR Renegade to win the GTP Enduro at the Slot Car Cave in SC. Six or the seven teams used RTR bodies.

 

I also want to give a shout-out to to Bud Bartos and Dan Halfhill for their winner and runner-up finishes at Haven Raceway and Hobbies using a RTR Renegade.

 

Ralph Middaugh won the race at Mark's Model World where every car used RTR bodies. Greg Fox picked up the win with a Renegade in the previous week there also.
