Hey Sunshine, Go up to the top of the page 88 thread, you'll see that I'm definitely one for expanding, and leverage promoting. Definitely look into RCGT...A post about it will be coming soon.

But there the approved bodies so far till some one else decides to make something different.
FWIW, the Pegasus Mustang has the nose/grill of a 69'. And that is one tough body! It's stood up to quite a beating and not a single crack yet. the lexan is quite thick in the front, with enogh indentions and breaks in the surface to make it quite a bit stronger than the HPI SS.

DJ919,

How about this for an honest answer on the How Hard do You Drive type of question.

IF my car is competitive, I race to WIN...if it's NOT I run laps to keep as many cars on the track as possible, and I yeild to the leaders so THEY can race....and I'll come back and challenge another time.

With a class like the VTA, or any class that (I personally) deem as a SPORTSMAN level type class...you can RACE Hard, yet be laughing and joking with the guy standing next to you on the stand.

We ran (7) cars today, for our FIRST VTA based class at our Local Racing Scene. 3 more bodies were sold I believe for future cars...and I know a couple more were sold during the week.

Our On-Road track is freakin HUGE compared to some of the carpet tracks I've seen...and after running the 17.5/LIPO Oval Class...man did the VTA On-Road feel putt, putt in speed..but I had a blast...and I haven't driven On-Road in almost 3 years.

SWTour, that's about as good as it comes bro!...Race to win if you & the car are feeling froggy. If you're off pace let those who are on their game do their thing. Thats just good racing manners. Cool stuff my friend! ...Its also REAL cool when the class you're running in looks so inviting, it sells to others right on the spot. The True V-TA appeal... I'm hoping that happens a lot where I'm from.

Glad I made the trip down to the Music City Championship. Weather was great. Everyone was nice and made an out-of-town racer feel very welcome. Parking lot track was a little loose at the start of the day but only required a few minor tweaks.

Good racing, fun atmosphere, refreshments provided for the racers, can't ask for much more!

Oh, I should add that it is about a 5 minute drive from Opryland and the Opry Mills Mall so there is plenty for our "better-halves" to do while we are having fun racing.

Horizon carries them, so your LHS should be able to get them. Pegasus Hobbies in California themselves also will mail order if you have a problem.
