This is my son at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway last May. We both LOVED the green on the new 2010 Camaro, so I wanted to try to get close to that.

This is an HPI Camaro body. I just did it in white and outlined some of my graphics with neon orange. I know that's frowned upon, but at the club racing level, I didn't think we'd get thrown out for it. Looks great I thought.

Thats not so bad as some other Frowned upon schemes. I like it and it does fit by many definitions.

Personally, I think as long as they look like RACE CARS and not surf boards, you're all good.

Looks Great! I think there are only so many authentic schemes that can be used, before they become stale. I really like the looks of your frowned upon paint job.

Thanks for your comments. I took the attached photos at the World of Wheels in Indy last weekend of some REAL Camaros and one Boss Mustang. They gave me some good ideas for the future. I would have never thought of just silver and black like the first photo, but that looked incredible!

Andy, you absolutely MADE my week!


Awesome, in every way. I know what I'm using for the Nationals in April.

How soon will they be available?

Oh yeah! Thats the one I have been waiting for.

HPI just crapped all over the Pegasus Mach1.

Any chance there will be a side exhaust decal like on the Newer Mustang GTR shell?
Edit: Never mind. I just photoshopped it on and it doesnt look very good.
