That looks great, but tell him not to run it. Those bodies are crap. I had the same one and it cracks with even the slightest tap to the front end.

I have found the key with ANY of the VTA bodies is to make sure the foam bumper on the car is close/touching the front of the body. Most of the VTA bodies have a large gap between the body and the bumper and filling that gap will make the body last quite a long time. HPI sells self adhesive foam bumper spacers that work well for this purpose (http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXST41&P=7).

Many VTA drivers will also use a bit of Shoe Goo in the corners of the body to help reinforce the front end. The combination of a good bumper and strategically placed Shoe Goo will help any of the VTA bodies last for at least several months of hard racing.

Thanks, I have an original and an R that I run in VTA. I like the look of your cuda, is that gunmetal? I have been using the tamiya gunmetal and thought it would look really good with orange. Good job.

Default Dick Trickle Purple Knight Mustang

Hi, I'am doing a Trickle 1970 mustang a purple one and the first white one. I'am from Trickle's home town, and know him really good. I have the last real Reffner Blue knight in my back year. I ran it for 6 races then sold it, and got it back. The trickle mustang, I have not gotten it done yet, but it will be at least a week to get it done. I race in Wausa Wisconsin, and live in Wisconsin Rapids. I have not raced in 18 years and just started again. Its all new to me. The one with the most toys wins!

I ran one of the Pegasus Mustang bodies for a season and a half before the body even cracked .Every one of there bodies I have gotten is pretty thick on the front, maybe you cut into the shell to deep on the front . I know it has no protective film on them , not saying you did.
