You know I think eventually it will happen that we will have lexan representing every car that ran in the Series that this class is based upon.

I think HPI is doing well with bashers and drifters in some of their non VTA shells like the Vette. I will be happy to see shells that I cant race with like a chevelle or GTO, Nova.

I would also like to thank Ford Motor Company for their licensing policies.

That new HPI 1970 Mustang body looks very nice! So when are we going to see the second VTA body that HPI has been working on? We were told there was TWO new VTA bodies coming from HPI.

Can't wait to get one of these! Thanks HPI!

Eee Gads....the 71' to 73' was a yacht compared to the 69-70. I'll bet there was never a 71-73 in TA !! Sure did look good with a fat set of L60 15's on the back though. Yeah...I know...I'm ancient.

Not the same car, I know, but the timing is the same. My 72 was a convertible, with Cragar SS's, and cheap gas. I wonder if those guys running their Prius get the same vibe rolling down the street these days and we did in real cars...LOL!

Looking at it I think it might actually create lift.

There is no way that spoiler does anything but get in the way—no lift or downforce that has any meaning to the handling of the car. I highly doubt it will be a problem in the least with the rules.

I'd also like to see a 70-73 camaro (RS front nose, please) made with the HPI quality and attention to detail.

You know when it comes to shells we are a hungry bunch. As soon as a new shell is released we say wow and Yippie kay aye for 2 seconds and then we turn around and say," Hey Andy what else is coming out thats new?" but in the last few months HPI has added another Camaro (2 counting the modern one) and today makes the second new stang from HPI in a very short while.

Would like to see a 70 Camaro and Trans Am.

Concur.

As much as I love what has been happening with the introduction of new bodies, I would like to see some of the foriegn TA cars that raced the series become available. Not sure how they would look out there with the muscle cars though. They were quite a bit smaller than the US muscle cars so the scale would be off. Still, there were some very cool cars that raced TA that weren't muscle cars.

For now though, I'm in heaven with the introduction of the Javlin and Boss 302. Maybe next year.

The spoiler may not do anything, but it sure looks cool.
I'd love to see them do a '69 Mustang next, I'll they will have to do is sculpt a new front end and maybe a rear end if you want to get down and dirty..
