That 'Cuda is AWESOME.

Couple of questions...
Is the Number on the door a sticker or paint?
If you did that number yourself, what font is it?

I just picked up a Camaro the other day and now i'm VERY inspired to lay some paint on it!! Thanks!!!!

I was just gluing up some tires this morning and I got curious about VTA tires and standard rims. Not that it would be legal, and for that matter it would not handle as well because the VTA tires are wider in the back. Anyway here is what I came up with. I can use the front VTA tire on a standard rim, but I have to mount it backwards to turn the small side wall out. To make it work you would have to use the front tires all the way around. = Less traction.

also you may have a clearance issue on the inside with the rubber hitting the A- Arm

I hate and suck at painting bodies, so just about everything is a sticker including the numbers. I don't remember the font name - after converting to outlines in Illustrator, I customized the look, then accidentally deleted my working file. I'll have to go through 1,000 fonts to find it again.

The interior was ordered from a dude in England. I think his Ebay shop is TamKyo-models.

Thanks for all the kind words. I haven't been able to race much lately but wanted to keep promoting the class by showing what an average guy could do with a little time.

Great looking cars guys, I can't wait to throw down some new paint for our outdoor season. I was hoping to be able to get one of the new bodies for that though. Hey Andy, what happened to the new stuff?
