Hey Darkside, could you comment on motor timing and FDR... in your words what is the difference between running a low FDR w/ low motor timing VS. a higher FDR and high motor timing?

Thanks

Are you sure this is a 1969 Mustang? What is up with those blowers coming out of the hood?

It's very modified with the flares and such, almost a caricature of a '69.
(so it may not be VTA legal)

You can tell that it's a '69 because of the headlights.
Those are fuel injection stacks coming out of the hood.

It will also come down to body width. If its not 200mm, it won't make it.

The RTR-X Mustang is a show car. Yes, it started life as a 69 Mustang, but that's not really what it is anymore. It's a show car/publicity stunt for the RTR brand.

Hopefully the stacks are separate and can be left off. I don't see why it couldn't be VTA legal. I doubt it has any areo advantages over the HPI 70 Mustang. Greenhouse is about the same. Other than the fender flares, chin and rear deck spoiler it's not that much different.

Is this body only available pre-painted? Or will there be clear bodies?

The drift 1969 Mustang body should be left as a choice for each group; not put on the official list of approved bodies. It's in no way a vintage reproduction Trans Am body. Although this may be the only "resto-mod" body we'll see, it's still not within the spirit of the class. If we're going to start stretching, then the DeTomaso Pantera should be on the list since it actually did race in Trans Am.

I don't see what is so radical about it that it wouldn't make the list simply on the merits of being a 69 Mustang. It certainly would not be the first that raced with big fender flares. That set of trumpets on the hood look like they can be left off. Im going to try one as soon as I can.

That would come out to 3.84 and most likely fine depending on how large the track is. If anything you can switch pinions to get you closer.
