I painted this '70 Boss Mustang for myself. "Big Ed's PIZZA" is a great spot in Oak Ridge, TN. I used to live there for about 10 years. I always loved their sign/logo! And, their pizza is awesome! So, I had to make a Big Ed's car.

I think it could easily have been one one that would have been racing back in the day. Its mounted on an Associated TC3. Just about all of it is paint except for the little sponsor decals that come with the HPI bodies and the lights/grill.

Thanks to Rockstar Paint for the custom masks!

Nice body. the chrome wheels actually give it some "age" to it. I suggest they stay.
At any rate, here is my latest VTA concept. In celebration of the new Firebird, I present This. [IMG][/IMG]

I wondered how long it would be before somebody did this scheme. Looks really good man.

I've been working on that paint scheme for a year now. On the 2010 camaro body. Your camaro looks good.

June 20, 2013. Austin, Texas, USA.

After 5 months of hard racing, the Austin, Texas-based Penske/Sunoco team announced that their 1969 Chevrolet Camaro was due for a makeover.

Team driver/owner/custodian Tommy Regan is excited for the remainder of the season and is confident the new skin on the car will maintain the same level of performance the team has enjoyed thus far. Unfortunately for the team, the car's painter (also Mr. Regan) chose the wrong shade of blue for the car. While fearful it may make it more difficult for the team to see the car on the back straights, Regan is hopeful the color will be bright enough not to require a repaint. Regan has since been relieved of painting duties and was last seen entering his private motor coach followed by no less than a half dozen Norwegian super models. The ladies were seen leaving 3.5 minutes later less than satisfied.

Here you go. Check out post #111. They stay on the tires indefinitely unless you hit the walls repeatedly and rip or wear them off. I just replace individual stickers as needed. I love my Goodyear stickers!

My very first VTA car. I'm a R/C veteran of 26+ years, have raced just about every type of 1/10th scale electric race car, *except* a touring car - until now. I'm planning on running VTA at The Gate in Brunswick, OH (near Cleveland).

This is a Spec R S1, Novak Edge ESC, Novak Ballistic 25.5, SMC 5000mAh, Spektrum DX3C, Pegasus '70 1/2 Camaro. I *love* this body style, and one of these days, I'll own a full-scale Camaro Oh - and yes, I'm aware of the "goal posts"; they'll get cut down before we go racin'
