Hey Guys,

I finally had a chance to finish the body for my VTA. Now I can get rid of the used freebie I've been running and have a proper car. Here's a few pics of the finished product.

Looks good Paul. I didn't know that a 72ish Camaro body was available. Who makes it? Is it legal for VTA? If not, is it being considered? We need some more variety out there on the track!

Does anyone have pics of the Pegasus bodies? I've never seen them and can't seem to find a place to get them.

Hi Guys,

Who makes it? Is it legal for VTA?
Pegasus makes (or made?) them and it is a legal body.

Does anyone have pics of the Pegasus bodies? I've never seen them and can't seem to find a place to get them.
The pics I posted are a Pegasus 70SS Camaro. The bodies are very thin, come with no over-spray film on them, no paint masks and no decals. I picked them up on ebay.

Paul.

I just checked A-Main and they have all three Pegasus bodies in stock (70 SS, 70 Big Fish, & 70 Mach Racer). As states above, these are very basic with no decals or overspray film. Didn't post a link but can be found under 1/10 200mm Touring Car Bodies on the A-Main site. Narrow search to Pegasus by manufacturer and all three pop up. CHeaper than Flea-bae

I wonder if they switched Lexan? I have 2 unpainted and they do not have film. They are very decent reproductions.

Double check your bodies. I initially thought it did not have an overspray film. Yes I agree they are really nice bodies, especially the mach 70.

Are the 25.5 motors popular for other types of RC? I see that Trinity has a new Duo3 coming in a 25.5 but says for crawler. Out here, they don't limit motor brand, at least, they didn't last year and I doubt they will this year, and the duo 1 was quite popular.
