Default PROTOform VTA Body

PROTOform press release:

J71 #1526

After receiving many requests, Protoform is proud to release it's rendition of the 1971 Trans Am Championship winning car. The addition of the "J71" to the VTA scene will surely add new excitement and drama to an already diverse class of racing.

The "J71" features all the unique styling cues of the original car as well as is a molded in rear spoiler. The front of the car features an add-on nose with air dam. When mounted with shoo goo and 2mm screws it becomes an integral part of the body. Because this area of a racebody is the most prone to racing wear and tear, a second nose is supplied with the body. This configuration allows for molding a lightweight, durable .030 lexan body, which in turn aids the handling ability of any VTA chassis.

The "J71" body is 200mm wide at the front and 210mm across the rear wheel openings. The "J71" body comes with a protective coating, decal sheet, window masks, and the extra lexan nose piece with mounting screws.

The VTA class has already proven that it's loved by all. The Protoform "J71" will hopefully make it even more colorful!

They were given one week to comply since they drove a few hour to race at the rug, but that was 2 months ago. The rug does follow national rules of the 25.5 and gets a good turnout of them on a weekly basis

As far as bodies go, what was in the 70's TA circuit that is not available in Lexan? Javelin and More Cuda Variants, A Decent 70 Camaro, Decent 70 Mustang and a Falcon. Anything else?
I've never seen those wheels before, are they HPI?

They're on the HPI site. I know the lower ones are styled after the original wheels on the DeTomaso Pantera.

Would something like the new protoform body get approved for use since there are design liberties with the body lines?


Great looking body though.

I only remember them running 2 weekends in trans am, I know they are pretty regular in world stock... I agree tho, if they are gonna continue to run they need to at the very least invest in 25.5's to kept from running others over
