Dale the J71 looks fantastic! Please consider doing a M70.

How did you get that pinion to fit?

You have to take your Dremel to the chassis and grind down the webbing directly below the pinion. To get a 50 in there, iir, you need to take it most of the way down. I got into the 4.0-ish range without modding the motor mount, can't recall what spur I was using but 88 sticks in my head. If so, the 80 will be better yet in that regard.

Would rather see a T64, but talk about a one-scheme race car... Kinda like Ron Grable's '67 Dart...only one that ran.

WAY cool, though, and interesting story behind it.

F63 (or, as some say, "good looking Mustang") would be great though, again, limited. Or, perhaps, either a D66 or C66, Tulius or Team Starfish. Tulius almost won the first championship for Dodge with the D66.

I only had to remove a small amount of the cross web below it with a dremel to get it to work. I used a little round grinder bit.

Default R/CAR On-road track video.

Here's a video of the R/CAR track if you are going to Indy this weekend for the Circle City On-Road Championships.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tTQn6BdWgtk

I took the body off my TC3 VTA car and strapped the little camcorder to the front shock tower. Didn't go to fast...didn't want to smash my gizmo!

Here's the flyer for the Circle City On-Road Championships:

Ok, I can't stop looking at the photos of the new Boss 302 from HPI, and I can't help but wonder, who will be the first to release a set of decals to make this body into a '69 Boss?
