My first VTA body. Forgot how simple masking tape is. Love my liquid mask but I didn't feel I needed it or the numerous scores in the body.

EDIT, I need to either get a new phone or have the lens cleaned. Argh!

Darth,
That looks great. Are going to bring it to Bush River Raceway in Columbia to play? Don't forget that it is indoors, so the heat and the rain don't matter!

I'd like to come down again sometime soon. It was a lot of fun running on the rug.

Darth-
Awesome job on the paint and detail. Are you going to try to lower the body more on the chassis?

Thanks!


Yes I lowered it after the pics. I had it jacked up a bit for the initial fittings.

Are we sure that the cars that have run in historic/vintage Trans Am racing are equivalent to what ran in the Trans Am series? (And I'm only talking about the "correct" period.)

Before you answer... let me put this out there...



Just sayin' that the historic Trans Am site is NOT official.

Now to find me a 1968 Barracuda in Lexan...

All I know is when Rob King gets asked if this car or that car will be added to the list of approved USVTA bodies, he answers by referencing http://www.historictransam.com/Cars.html. Besides the point of who makes a 1/10 scale lexan body of that car anyways?
