Great looking bodies guys. I'll be working on a couple over the next couple of weeks. Will post pics when finished. You are a tough act to follow though!

Saw this link posted in the USVTA main thread - HPI Sprint 2 with the 1969 Camaro Body (http://www.hpiracing.com/kitinfo/708/).

Here is a photo of the body from the HPI webpage:

Finally, a new body! I hope they are in going to sell the body separately.
I went to the website and clicked on "parts" for the car and they showed 2 standard touring car bodies, a Subaru and their own design touring body, but no 1969 Camaro. Hmmmm

Hey Guys,

Just finished a GT 500 for a change of shells. A little variation of my red white blue theme. The last pic is my 70SS shell.

Paul.

Hi Darkside,

Funny thing about that is I was ready to start my normal paint work and noticed the blue stripes, I thought, why not. I was pretty happy with how it turned out.

LMAO!!! You noticed that huh? I need to come up with a better way of mounting the driver. The mount in the Camaro cracked from vibration which really surprised me. The driver bailed during a heat and was run down and killed by another VTA car.

He'll be back......

Paul.

Default 3rd Annual Music City Championsip - Sunday, Sept. 26, 2010

hey on-road racers,

Its less than 20 days before the MCC#3. Get your rides together and prepare yourself for a great raceday and event. All the things to make this another great race for VTA and TC/RCGT have fallen into place nicely. Here is the rundown.....

Warm-up race is this Sunday Sept 12th at Hobbylobby

MCC#3 is two weeks after on Sunday the 26th at the same location

Track and pits open at 8am
Registration between 9-10am
Paint contest at 10:30am
Drivers meeting at 10:45am
Race #1 at 11am

Best 5 out of 6 scoring

BBQ and drinks for all paid entries
Entry fee is still just $15....bring the Family and get lunch for $5 per person
Trophies 1st-10th in each class

So come on out or go ahead a pre-register and get ready for one of the best VTA/TC races in the country.....

Thanks Myron "BATTMAN" Kinnard

Here is a Pegasus 70 Mach Jet "Mustang"

Paint - Pactra Rattle Cans:
RC250 Outlaw Black
RC251 Sprint White
RC254 Racing Red
RC262 Indy Silver
(bumpers/grill trim)

Here is my personalized version of the Vic Edelbrock #16 Mustang paint scheme (http://www.historictransam.com/Drive...ockMustang.htm). Numbers, circles, and sponsors are decals. I also used a small strip of white pin stripe around the outside of the headlights. Everything else is painted.

All details so far are paint. Will post a fully detailed picture later after I apply some decals and decide if I'm going to mount this on a TC3 or TC4.
Like the paint job.... FYI...Carl Seils makes a complete sticker sheet for that paint job if you dont have one already.....Nice work!!!

Well, the choices for "legal" VTA bodies IS kinda limited. I'm sure if VTA popularity holds, HPI and others may come out with more options. I wouldn't mind seeing bodies like the 1969 Firebird, 1970-73 Trans Am, AMC Javelin, Dodge Charger, Mercury Cougar, and other Trans Am series staples as options.

If there's sufficient demand, I'm sure the body companies (and then USVTA) will give us more options. Until then, we're gonna see the same bodies over and over again.

The HPI Camaros DO look awesome tho!!
