surprised i'm the first to post this but route 246 planning (http://www.rc-r246.com/plannning/miniz.html) has released some new racing livery BMW M3 autoscales that are simply awsome!

david is checking to see how long it will take to get these in the shop here.

Do I see fender flares on those Bimmers? They look great, but I wonder how wide they are up front. The old ASC was a little too narrow to be useable on an MR02. Tires would peel constantly.

I will have to get #42 or 21 regardless. They all look great, but those two are calling my name.

Great stuff, thx. This is a fine serie for a class cup, specialy for beginners or promotional races.

Those look fantastic! I'll definitely be picking one up once they hit the shop.

Any idea if they're planning on releasing the whitebody?

It looks to be 0 offset wheels on them if the Google translator is correct.

thanks for sharing... nice to see new bodies... love the livery... but don't know if it's just me, i'm just not feeling the rear spoilers/wing... i just think they're a bit big, kinda off scale... it kinda sits there and kinda shouts out at you... rear wing!!!.... but again that's just me... :D

Nice looking bodies! But they don't look as tall as the ASC M3s. Could they have used a different mold?

I'd like to know more about Route 246. Is it part of Kyosho?

i doubt it is a new mold. it does not appear to be any larger fender flairs than the original.

yes, the original is narrow for an mr-02 however with the a-arm i'm sure it will run much better.
i ran the m3 on my mr-03 with the wide front end for a couple weeks and the tires did not peel at all. it's still a bit top heavy and will traction roll at the end of a long straight into a turn if you don't let up off it but it was great fun to get a nice looking autoscale out on the track that doesn't tend to get used much for racing.

Not my piece of cake. Proportions are not correct because this is a streetcar with big wing. Great they make livery's, but this car should be wide just like the real thing.

Correct HaCo, wide and low (http://robson.m3rlin.org/cars/bmw-m3-gtr-motorsport-2001/) the fender flares are missing...
I'll take one though :D

The Yokohama M3's are actually correct -- they raced in that streetcar-like guise for the Speed World Challenge series.

You can fit +1N/+1W pretty comfortably under the M3, the front bumper was wide enough that tire peeling wasn't a huge problem (you did have to at least tape the tires though). But a wider, lower version would've definitely been better, it's not doing the Nurburgring version any justice. :rolleyes:

Hey color0 - I remember that Silver w/Black-roof BMW M3 you had back in the day... It had an old-version Atomic fiberglass DPS, and not a lot else, but I thought that car was just the coolest thing. Then you got some Square wheels for it, I think they might have been inch-ups, and it looked beautiful. For so long I went looking for Square inch-ups....:D
