Another question, I'm thinking about getting a VTA set up for this. What size body do I need?
And how do I tell what size tires to use?
Looking on this list, there's a bunch, but I havn't really started searching yet. http://www.usvintagetransam.com/rules/index.html
First the tires thing...
The only tires allowed are HPI tire part #4793 front and #4797 rear, using stock tire inserts provided with tire and any HPI Vintage wheels designed to fit these tires. All other tires and/or part numbers are illegal. Five or Eight spoke wheels available in various colors. 0mm offset front wheels and 6mm offset rear wheels are intended for 26mm width fronts and 31mm width rear tires.
Grinding of tire tread is NOT permitted. Sanding of mold seam to remove seam is allowed. HPI Vintage Slicks and HPI Vintage Performance Tires are not allowed. Tire traction compounds are at the discretion of the track. No other altering, changing or softening of the tire is allowed. No "double stuffing" of foam inserts allowed—only single stock vintage tire inserts are allowed.
as per the rules...
As for the body, most of the fast guys are really only using 3 different bodies...
7494 - 1968 Chevrolet Camaro
PGH4003 - 1970 Mustang
#1526 - J71
They should all fit. I have the HPI 68' Camaro mounted to my TA-05 ver.II R using the exotech chassis.
