Hi Guys:

I'm considering changing the striping on my car for when it goes "Full Racetard" and becomes a track-only car.
Right now the car is Red w/ Black striping and roof; I'm considering changing to white. I think the white "pops" better for a track car.
Either way, I may change the 2012 style C-Stripes to 2013 style Hockey Sticks.



What do you guys think?
I like the black for a street car, as it is a little less hey look at me, give me a ticket. But the white is my choice for a track car.
I'll play Devil's Advocate: Black! 8)

In all seriousness though, this car has so much black plastic on it that I think that the black stripes work better. If you swapped to a '13 front and rear fascia, then I'd vote white.
Red & Black is my vote as well. Biased here too ;D
I will say the red with white will stand out more on the track.
