I think you should leave the white one alone.

Try Le Mans Racing Stripes on the silver car. See if you can simulate ghost stripes effect.

Or

You can go with the proper Jap tuner look (which I like to the core) and now you know where to look for if you want some tips.

Let's see if I can get some ideas!

Cyrus, go ahead with the mods on the silver GTR. The white one looks good enough.
Between, what scale are these?

The scale is 1:24. The White one did not come with these wheels, but i cant remove these wheels as they are Jammed!! :( Anyways, The chassis are getting interchanged as i like the white color better, but the Silver also looks soooo good as it is So im really confused.
Also, Salil, I didnt quite get you about the place to look for mods...

Default Not 1, not 2, not 3, but 4!!

I got myself 4 Scorpios, one in each color. Searched a lot of places for one, till i got in touch with the distributor directly. These are the Scorps in stock form. Will be modding them, differently if possible.
