except for the mustang(s), all of the other HPI bodies all have some kind of rear deck spoiler
Yup that is the one, we will put the spoiler on for this weekend. Thanks for the info and help.

Wow! Just finished reading the majority of this thread. Me and my dad(Rugdog65) have been hooked completely after spending the day at One Lug Raceway and watching the VTA racing. We spoke with Myron for a long time and he taught us a lot in a short period time, It was very appreciated! I like everything he is doing in promoting the USVTA. We are building both our cars to the USVTA specs to promote what rob and myron are doing. We hope to be able to join in on some of the bigger USVTA races as well. I'll post some pic's once we have both cars setup and ready. Also look forward to start racing more in the VTA class at One Lug Raceway.

There is a website dedicated to French Racing Cuda's with many photos of the 70's cars. Here is a link - (http://www.transamcuda.com/gallery/t...s.php?album=46)

Below is an example of a Pegaus Big Fish (Cuda) I painted that was inspired by the Radio Monte Carlo car.

+1 here!!! Someone needs to have a "dimmer" enduro. Maybe 30 minutes with 20 minutes of light fading to near-darkness (or longer!!). Battery changes would be needed.

Cool

Y'all are missing something.... What are they holding in their hands! Other than cars!? I thought WE knew what we were doing with trpohys. But I think they know what's important. Lol

I might have to explain to the wife if we ever visit France. She will wonder why I'm bringing my car. It's for the door prizes honey.

there's probably some champagne spraying pics missing too

we do that at 24-hour endure in NJ - the winners get a couple of bottles to spray around

so grimey track funk + 24 hours of racing/no showering + champagne spray = odd looks from the police if/when you get stopped on the ride home

You gotta follow the link back to the blog but this is pretty trick. Would be better if HPI made headlight buckets.

Vacuum formers aren't that tough to find/make. Maybe we (not "me", but the all-inclusive "we") can get some made.
Is RaM RC still around? If someone has a set of the aluminum RaM headlight buckets, that would be just about perfect for making a mold to make lexan ones for LEDs.

axial racing has a light bucket set for their crawlers that could easily be adapted to a TC - that and some shoe-goo and you'd be all set just use a paint mask/masking tape over the head lights and goop the bucket inside

I know I used that for head lights on my Axial Jeep body - and now it has headlights and fog lights
