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!
Is it available yet? Need 2

From http://www.usvintagetransam.com/rules/index.html the current national body rules are below. Updated 2/16/2011

For some additional information about the real racing series this r/c class is based upon, check out this website http://www.historictransam.com/AboutHTA.htm.

Any body that ran the real Trans Am class from 1966-1972 should be allowed. Unfortunately the Corvette wasn't run until after '72 which is why the HPI '67 Stingray isn't allowed in USVTA. Also the HPI Pantera was not run in Trans Am, but some clubs/tracks allow the use of these bodies as it fits the vintage feel of this class.

At this point, there are only a few bodies that raced Trans Am that aren't readily available to the public.
- Ford Falcon
- Chevy II Nova
- Mercury Cougar
- Pontiac Firebird (Note to HPI - sell a Firebird nose for the Camaro)
- Dodge Challenger

With some creative paint schemes, you can at least make the Camaro look like a Firebird and the 'Cuda look like a Challenger

(Feel free to correct me if I overlooked anything)

Switch over to 64 pitch, dremel the webbing under the pinion and try an 88 or less spur and gear for 4.0 FDR.

Adjust that gearing based on track size, but 4.0 is a pretty good start. I've heard of some people running as low as 3.8.

+1 on both counts. + Good versions of all the Pegasus shells. (Sorry Pegasus)

Thanks again Dale for an awesome shell. It will be interesting to see how the nose goes on. Thats an excellent feature to have an extra nose to add more racing life to the shell.
