Look at the difference in the windshields and the rake of the nose. The J71 is better aerodynamically but you won't notice as much difference until you get on a bigger, low traction track.

Default VTA AAR Cuda

Here is a few pics of my freshly painted AAR Cuda for the VTA Battles. I wish I had the skill to do very thin black outlines on the color breaks. Don't have the numbers or driver figure done yet. Now I just need to find a place to race this winter that isn't 4+ hours away.

Is that an H.B. Bailey Pontiac Firebird (the red and white #36) from the NASCAR Grand American division? Got any more pics (side, rear, etc.)?

This was the body I had airbrushed for the upcoming Southern Nats. Unfortunately, I can't attend. Really bummed about that. I'd been the last two years. Great time with great people.

This is an HPI 68 Camaro of course, done up as the "Genesee Bear Wagon" which some of you may have seen. Genesee was THE beer once upon a time in my world of family and friends.

Oh, for sure. I'm not a Mustang guy but that thing is exceptional.

And as for links to youtube, yeah just copy that code (whatever it's called) after the equal sign and put that between the [YOUTUBE][/YOUTUBE].... should work every time .

Once again, awesome decals from Carl after I sent him a couple fuzzy pictures and a half-formed "let's put the wrong stuff on the wrong car" idea. Now if only someone would make a 69 Mercury Cyclone body....

Show me your VTA drivers and how they are mounted... Are you mounting them to the chassis, or to the body?
