That is a nice looking car sure to spice up the USGT ranks. Is it meant for 0mm offset wheels?

If you guys were to do a modern Dodge Challenger like this I would have to buy several.

VTA is Vintage Trans Am. Replicas of cars raced in the Trans/Am series in the late 60's and early 70's only. A specific body list follows that.

Nice! Good to see some more 190mm bodies hitting the shelves.

Edit: 197mm - a bit wide for my liking

Sith Lord: I hope you realize that most all "190mm" bodies are actually in reality 195mm wide. This Camaro is 195mm across the rear wheel openings as usual - however I added 1mm to each side in the front so the body could be slammed nicely and still have tire clearance when turning.

Dale I was wondering if you carved this one yourself. Looks like it will work with or without the rear wing. The drifters will enjoy getting in on that. I know the USGT crowd will enjoy it. Is it available yet?

Dale I would also be up for a deep interior tray with roll cage and changeable driver, seats and dashboard. Even without all that stuff being changeable if you did a nice driver tray for USGT and VTA would be great.
