Default New VTA body release

New Product release from McAllister Racing-

#305- 1/10th 1968 Cougar VTA body-
Complementing our 69 Mustang and 70 Firebird VTA bodies, we are introducing a 1968 Cougar VTA body. This body is formed as one piece. At this time the body will include paint mask for windows, and front and rear details. No detail decals are included, but we are in the process on making detail decals for all of our VTA bodies.

Please support your local RC Dealers.
All McAllister Racing Products are 100% made in the U.S.A.

Where are the actual cut lines on this body?

On the side, it is pretty obvious. But the front can't be run at that height off the carpet.

That is what adjustable body mounts are for.

No rear spoiler, but the body looks very low. I am going to have to try this out on my TC4!!

Take a piece of tape or marker and make your own cut lines across the front the front, that way you can make it the perfect height.

I like the fact that it doesn't have cut lines.

As always, I appreciate the positive comments.

There are trim lines all the way around the bodies. However I always intend them as guidelines only. Final trimming should always be done after the body is mounted. I like to give plenty of front spoiler material on the bodies so it can be trimmed as desired. It can be trimmed as a full spoiler, partial spoiler or even no spoiler. Also keep in mind that we set the bodies very low for the press shots.

The extra "Trim lines" that come on the McAllister's bodies is one of the reasons I buy them, I can trim them the best way that works for me.

Keep up the good work!!!

Very nice Gary, I can think of at least one person that will love this body at HT.
