They are awefully thin up front aren't they. I used the Duratrax body repair tape and shoo goo before I ran it. Haven't had a lot of track time with the 'Cuda yet but its already holding up better than my Mustang body did. Others have mentioned this also but I would highly recommend doing something to the front of these bodies for reinforcement (especially the 'Cuda).

I used automotive shoe goo and duck tape on the front end of my 'Cuda and it worked like a champ. Yea, it dented and got a little mangled, but it did not tear or rip. So I defiently reccomend it.

I have an option for the body re-enforcment. I have used Clear Abrassion gaurd, also known as Chassis protector film. It has been used for Clear Bra's for full size auto's for years. It conforms very well under med heat, and is stronger than Shoo Goo and Tape, I have it holding the chin spoiler in place on my Cuda, even after hitting a pipe head on it just springs back in place. Heck this stuff held my 5th scale bodies together for years.

Then that pretty well pegs the body as a non-Boss '69 fastback.

Sorry, can't do pics. I gave the body to Racer Rick (he's a big Mustang fan...has a 1:1 Shelby GT350 in the garage) and he doesn't have a digi-cam. We'll have to wait until he get's 'er painted up and mounted.

Vintage Trans Am was awesome at our local track today. We had 18-20 entries in that class alone!

Game on!

Whoops. I'll fix that when I get to the office and add the other tracks that signed on in the last couple of days.

No kidding. This is definiltey the class of the future. At the end of a full day of club racing with a fantastic turnout, all anyone could talk about was the Trans Am class and the 10-car A-main. The guys who weren't racing were all figuring out how to get a car ready for next time. The guys who were racing, were all talking about every battle had in the main.

And for those of you guys who were disappointed in the brushless motor allowance, I think our A-main and overall race yesterday proved out some very important items.

One, not a single person racing or watching can tell what car had brushed or brushless. And the best point to make was that the two fast laps in the A-main last night were a 13.131 (brushless) and a 13.159 (brushed, and A-main winner). Both cars wheeled by fairly accomplished racers.



If you don't have a Trans Am class at your home track, or have built a Trans Am car yet... what are you waiting for?
