still missing a few details
Maybe I am lazy, but I really like the bumpers not chromed. I like them the same color as the body.

Plan A: Beg the manufacturers to produce a 67 that will fit the VTA platform.
Plan B: Back pour the Vaterra mold, half it with a band saw, widen it to the appropriate width and fill the gaps with plaster or bondo.
Plan C: Buy the Vaterra shell and cut it up into body panels which are then used to make the HPI fastback Mustang look like the 67.


Plan A is slow and often ineffective. Plan B is a ton of work and might end you up in jail. At least if you sell them it will. Plan C is expensive and probably is going to look wonky if its not executed well.

The only other thing I can think of is that some drift chassis have rear arm narrowing kits. Especially for Tamiya. This gives you a chance to use deep dish rims on 190 bodies. That way you could just use the Vaterra shell.

Ahem if it was on the list.

One more thing. You could use it in USGT. It would rock there and its legal.

Is the HPI Cuda really back? The last time I looked it was still listed as discontinued. That was a few days ago.

Both of my LHSs had one in stock last week. I didn't know they were supposed to be discontinued.

There was one hanging on the wall at my local hobby store yesterday. It wasn't there a week ago. So they're getting them from somewhere...

Thats Good. I think we need every shell possible for the class. I know there is another new shell coming that I am very excited about.

I was going to say, "I hope it is a _________!", but I am excited for ANY of the remaining cars from the Historic VTA Registry to make it to 1/10th scale!
