Another Tamiya HSV TA05v2

This new car has me on the fence. On one hand the HSV body is diggity dope but this livery is wiggity wack. Very rarely do all three stars align; beautiful car, cool livery, and race winning performance. I've had an idea for an HSV body for a few months now but I am too cheap to execute it. My problem is I get an idea and spend a bunch of money on it just to do it, then I put it in a box and forget about it. For example, I have no idea where the HKS Viper is right now. I have to assume that bright thing is in a box somewhere. I seriously have a wall of boxes that I store cars in. I also have another wall with kit boxes and NIB's. I only keep a few cars out at a time. That's why my projects take so long. Out of sight, out of mind. Look at this car and decide for yourself.

Other strong performances including a 3rd place finish at the 4th Round Sepang, a 2nd place finish at the 5th Round Sugo set up an exciting championship deciding fnal 8th Round at Motegi. After winning pole position for a third time, the race saw the Team Weider HSV-010 battle hard with the Lexus Team Petronas Tom's machine for the win.
