Kind of a nit pick, but, shouldn't the driver be on the other side?

It's one of the rare UK / Aussie-spec cars.

Well yeah...

... but it was way easier that way and it's sorta a play on the fact it's Tamiya TA-05 ver.II under there so I figured it would work.

Your 'Cuda looks great, Art_Mighty! The only thing I don't like (and this is with almost all of these 'Cuda bodies on modern 4WD on-road chassis') is how far deep inside the rear wheelwells the tires are. It just looks weird for a muscle car. I guess there's nothing anybody can do about it without installing longer arms & CVDs, though. I love the color of blue, what paint is that, or did you mix something up yourself?

you can use some small washers on the front and rear to set the body more(looking right)

I don't think washers will make much difference, it's the 31mm HPI VTA rear wheels that are helping you out--they have 5mm more offset. Also, it looks like Art's lock-nuts are out on the axles as far as they can go. Adding washers would push them out further and they probably wouldn't have enough nylon to keep them locked on the axle threads.

Even with the VTA wheels & tires, I still find the tires look a tad too deep inside the wheel-wells. Almost all the modern onroad chassis' look that way. I had to take a vintage chassis that was TOO wide, and narrow it to get it to look like a muscle car. That's just my preference though, as I grew up in the 70's loving muscle cars and own a '70 Charger and '86 GN. Muscle cars just don't look right unless the rear tires fill the wheel-wells.
