Default Never!

I would never stop a Super "J" from running! Most people would agree that it was darn near as good as a MRP Pro 180. Phil, when you read this stuff, do you have your glasses on?

Here is the new front end assembly. As you can see, it uses solid one-piece construction to conform to the pan car guidelines. This new design allows the upper arms to sit low on the chassis, providing the needed clearance for many of the current body designs, and the upper arms provide castor adjustment found in other racing classes

It's very pretty, and looks stronger, too.

What "guidelines" are you referring to?

Pardon whilst I look for my hip waders. "Darn near as good as a MRP Pro 180." Looks like a grudge match invitation to me. What say we have a little matchup, two antique people and their antique cars? And if you don't have an MRP (and you probably don't since so few survived the track) I'll lend ya one. Get Matt in on it with his ASSociated as well.....oh yeah.

(A vintage heat WOULD be nice....)

Great news for some racers that have been waiting. Good looking part also. I think you and Veronica got a winner on your hands. Best of luck with them!

Wonder if the spacing on those balls is the same as older car? Can the new front fit the old car? Is there much parts cross over?

Maybe we should do just that. If I drove your MRP car, I know you wouldn't be doing your "TANK" thing.

Default GT body

Looks to me like the Porsche GT bodies I got earlier this year will fit the new WRC car nicely. GT bodies for me next season.

Oh sure I would...it's mine and I can break it if I want to, lol. Serious offer tho, if you want to borrow it, I'd ship it tomorrow. I would also like the GLC to host a vintage heat, but doubt it'll happen given that we already have GT, 1/8 open, 1/8 masters, 1/10 open, pan, blah blah. Probably gets hard to co-ordinate so many classes after awhile, and for people to participate in a vintage run, that'd probably mean some of them couldn't also do modern pan at the same event. For example, I think Rick did back to back mains in two different classes, and that's not easy.

I have spent the last several months trying to get ahold of some guys I used to know back in the 80's, with just about zero success, trying to get them to come to the GLC and run. I'd even provide the cars, but getting in touch with people seems to be difficult. But, with all that said, no reason why you and I (and maybe a few others) can't have a vintage grudge match!

I simply mean that this is a solid axle that spans the full width of the front end, from wheel to wheel. From the concept photos we could not see how this lower section was designed, so I wanted to show everyone that it is functionally the same as the GT Due. Some folks were under the impression that the lower arms were on king pins, which is clearly not the case.
