The HPI bodies seem to have more realistic molding detail I think. The 70 camaro wasnt bad there but way over sized (was like a parachute). As far as durability the 68 camaro has done by far the best for us.....we spend alot of time finding the walls lol. As for 2 piece molds, I dont care for that part but when done right we havent had any issues. Even with spoiler when mounted right.....which isnt with designed mounting area lol.We havent had any narrow width issue with the bodies we have used with our TC5's. All but the the 68 Camaro are a little thin I do agree lexan wise. All my 68 Camaro bodies are still in really good shape after alot of races on concrete and carpet.


The Mcalister and Parma just seem too Bricky looking as well as the RJ Speed bodies. Lacking detail. Whether they hold up as well or better I cant say. But like you mentioned, from the driver stand they do all hold the spirit of the class look.
Agreed. I've often wondered why there's not more variety when it comes to RC car bodies, especially when it comes to older cars. Is it really tough to get licensing from car manufacturers?

One more Mopar...



I have better wheels on it now, but it has been raced, so the body has the Cuda crunch on the front left...

You guys gotta see Crispy's car in person to appreciate that green. It's a custom mixed color that a camera just can't do justice to. Really looks great on the track!

Instead of USVTA would that be A USVTA?
