Yes! We do. Actually a cleaner 70 year model would be great. And a Notch back Mustang, and nobody ever got to that Javelin. There must be a hang up in the license on that thing or someone would have produced it by now.

Default Successful failure

So I was trying to replicate the 68 Smokey Yunick Camaro, but could not match the gold?! I decided to take some artistic liberties and I like the way it came out. Does this disqualify me for VTA? I know I still need numbers and a driver. Of course the pics do the paint no justice.

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

START YOUR CHARGERS!!!!!...time to get that last minute preparations together for one of the largest VTA(with TC/RCGT) races for the last 2 years..the 3rd Annual Music City Championsip - Sunday, Sept. 26, 2010 (MCC#3)...

We are very hyped about this years race with a change in the race format and all the new local on-road racers coming to this event. I believe we have a chance at beating last year and year before entries by a good margin.

Here is the short of the event:

Race is next Sunday Sept 26th
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

Local and National sponsors are giving away prizes.

The BEST trophys anywhere.

Im looking forward to seeing alot of support from my local VTA and TC racers as well as some of the out of town guys Ive raced with over the last couple of years.

Also I would like to thank Tim Moore for putting this event together for the 3rd year as well as all the other things here does for our r/c family.

Thanks Tim

you can see the trophies and pics from last year here...

Have you guys seen the new McAllister late 70's Camaro IROC body for touring cars?

I know it's not legal, but he did a really nice job with the proportions.

sadly, its too wide for our bodies - its made for on-road buggies, RC10 and the likes

might look really bad on a TC chassis

I love those wheels. Just do that paint again with legal wheels and you are ready to rock.

Sorry. I should have been clearer. McAllister now has a 200mm version of his IROC body that should fit the touring cars very well.

Again, I know it is not legal, but when I was running VTA we got pretty bored of the body offerings.
