That body is 100% for SURE 200mm? Can one of your pics be of it dropped over your TA chassis w/wheels on it?

Crazy thing is they list it as SS, but the body in that pic is DEFINITELY an RS (ask the guy who's owned two...). SS would have been more prototypically correct having the full front bumper and no fog/driving lamps inboard of the headlamps to model the cars actually raced (Hall/Chaparral, Warren Agor, etc).

Thumbs up Ask and you shall receive

There are a couple of strange pulls in it (upper front fender, behind the wheels)

And you're right it is an rs.... but its pretty detailed and looks pretty good. It could be cleaned up a little.


Should look good with the vintage wheels under it..... they are close to the factory rallys

It could be a RS/SS, a RS/Z28 or just a RS. As a example, here's my 1973 RS/Z28. What matters is that it's a 2nd generation Camaro body that might fit. If anyone knows for sure....let us know!!

I'd love to see HPI make the bodies a little more durable. The Cuda especially which for some reason is horribly thin compared to the Camaro (possibly others). The damn thing is so thin that it was cracking and tearing before it was even cut and mounted on a car.

Talking Don't beat me up :p :cool:

A few people have asked me if this is 200mm. Well..... I'm a gas guy, I bought them for my nitro cars.....( runs and hides )

According to my wife pretty much ALL guys are "gas guys".

If it fits your nitro-mobile, though, it should fit my stuff.

Thanks,
