One question I have is how do you keep the front of the battery in position when using a shorty pack? My shorty wiggles side to side a little bit and it is not quite secured in place.

For those of you who run your shorty pack foward here's a tip. I use 3M thin double sided tape. You can get it at your local office supply store or craft store. It's used for scrapbooking.

There are two kinds, removable and permanent. They both come with a yellow label. The permanent is marked with red and the removable blue. I attached a pic of the permanent. I use the removable type.

I put a strip on the bottom of the pack and then put it in position in the car. Stays put even with hard hits and peels off easy. If your careful you can remove the battery a few times and it will stick back in place. Handy when you're trying weight bias adjustments.

I'm going to be ordering one of the VF1 packages from Brad this weekend probably. Plus the HPI vintage tires and wheels from the local hobby shop. Going to use the F103GT front suspension arms and front and rear axles and parts to mount the HPI VTA wheels. Yeah Racing sells a front upright kit that allows you to adjust the front camber; going to get that too. And of course, I have a very special VF1 body that I'm purchasing from someone to put on it.
No pic's yet I was the only one there, maybe next time.

I can't wait to see it finished!

Thanks! The over spray is hard to see in the pictures, but it is around the driver on the top deck area, couple streaks of black.

This is the same tape I use as well.

Looks Sweet

justinco, I use nitro fuel and a Qtip to remove overspray before laying down the lighter color.

Hey Manny, a Chaparral "sucker car" body is very angular. Wouldn't be too hard for someone who knew what they were doing to make one! With the 30mm fans available for cooling ESCs, etc, this could be a really cool project!!
I am a corner worker with the SCCA, ALMS, Grand Am, BMWCCA, HSR, AMA, blah, blah, blah. I can get some really good pics of the car from "back in the day" at Road Atlanta.
;-)

This pic shows the snowmobile engine on top of the drive engine. The snowmobile engine ran the fans that removed air from under the car and pulled a vacuum of sorts. Vic Elford is quoted as saying that it would suck the car down two inches.
