It can be beneficial to attach the device to the rear of the car between the tail lights so that you can achieve a marginally greater angle of attack on the spoiler blade not to mention stiffen the rear of the body.
I never noticed the chord size before, i just made my spoiler 5/8ths inch above the fold (mounting area)

This should help with the chord discussion.

Went with a more appropriate paint scheme this time. These Mcalister bodies are great. Really should have went them sooner than I did. This one I sprayed with a matt finish over the decals.

Hey Professor- Really nice, racey paint scheme. The flat is a cool touch. We put a body line just below half way up the sides so you can put a slight bend along that line. It straightens out the sides and adds a little dimension too.

kwkride- Nice AAR paint and graphics!! Same suggestion for a bottom tuck on the sides for all of our VTA bodies.

Thanks, I was wondering about that extra body line below the doors. It makes sense now.

I am lucky enough to find a pair here and there , we have 3 or 4 hobby shops within 30 minutes of my office. You might get lucky

I bought a few sets from radikool on Ebay , in England , tires cost $13 a pair, including shipping to the USA. I don't know his current inventory on tires.

He has wheels too, LOTS of VTA wheels. All was received in about 10 days.
