Seeing all of these great bodies makes me want to get an American muscle car body for my Stock Tourer all of the cars in this thread are giving me ideas for paint. Maybe when I completely destroy my Ford GT body I'll get a muscle car body.
I like to be different with my bodies, Mazda 6's are boring. Muscle and supercar bodies is where its at for me.

It would be awesome if a class like this was ran in Australia.

Build a car up and practice with it at race meetings. This has shown good results in the USA for generating interest.

+1 It only took me and one other racer talking about this to get the interest started in my area. Then I built a car up and just let it sit there in the pit, during the races. About three weeks later we had five guys for a class. Then we started having 8 to 12 guys each weekend.

DodgeBoy Im lovin the chrome around the windows, and the bumper. I didnt think the window decals could be out done, but that looks great. I like the black seal with rivets on the GT40 too. Great paint all around.

I recently received my Decal Sheet of VTA Numbers from CSeils and just wanted to post a quick pic for anybody else that may be interested. They look great! Shoot him a PM and he will hook you up with options and pricing info! Thanks CSeils!

Finally got pics of my '68 Camaro:



Sprint 2 with Castle Sidewinder/4600 combo and 2300mAh 7.4v LiPo (swap with a larger LiPo pack when this one slows). Nothing special done to the Sprint other than the BL/LiPo, stock springs and everything cuz I don't race it, just run it around a bit It also serves as my drift/TC chassis (no boo's please!) depending on how much traction I decide I want at the time

Not a big nascar fan (ernhart jr. concept) but like this scheme and colors.... rear of this car looks like a truck.
