I complain to them how they can make a car with nice wheels but front is too wild for this body so it end up hitting in lock to lock turn.
Anyway, still only GTR GT3 fan.

The thread title scared me for a moment, but I had to look anyway... I thought, "Who on earth would bother making a replica of a 1976 Mustang???"

I was relieved to see it was actually a 1967; love the body detail found on this and similar offerings.

I hate it when my front end is too wild.

Default Vaterra vs Nitro!

Its going head to head in a drag race with this older Nitro TC. Co worker thinks his nitro will smoke me once it gets to second gear. Im hoping the wider rears and quicker reving electric motor and gearing test will edge him out.

I will be trying both 2S and 3S LiPos. As always monitoring the 3S for temp and not discharging too low as the cutoff is set for the 2S.

Just have to decide on a scaled length for 1/4 mile. Anyone?

Im trying to keep it as fair as possible, plus these rears are wider than normal.

Smile Vaterra Brushless Mustang

I have a Vaterra brushless Camaro. The main complaint is that the toe-in, caster and camber are not adjustable out of the box. I have done a lot of mods and I love the car. Mods are:
All metal upgrades available from Vaterra
HPI Flux 2 shocks
3mm x 25mm rods to make toe in adjustable
locked front diff.
HPI Vintage wheels and tires
Replaced front shock mount with a rear mount for more adjustability
71T spur
30T pinion
Body painted by Indyhobbies
7.4V 50c battery
Handling and speed are GREAT. Faster than my Traxxas Funny car in 132'.

Bob
