McAllister makes a Camaro, but it's not legal for VTA. May be someone can convince McAllister to produce one.

I think John Shultz at HPI is the man you would talk to.

I'm guessing the guys at HPI know what a '72 Firebird looks like.

That's not how the body designers work.

The official Mike's Hobby Shop VTA Mascot, aka. "El Bandito", is now on display behind the glass display case at the front of the shop.

Son just picked up a tamiya tt-01 and a e10 in a trade. Gonna probably use the tamiya for vta for now and sell the e10. But did see hpi sells upgrades drivetrain for them pretty cheap, to ditch plastic. We will see. So soon all 3 of us will be ready for some vta

we will either be running on the marietta track (hot sot rc I think the name is) or come to yours once in awhile. Havent been to the other in quite awhile. Dont think we will going out there. We will see I guess.


If the hpi e10 drive shafts are swapped out to metal, do you guys think it would make a good vta chassis? Not an expensive upgrade.

Lord we're a greedy little bunch of body hounds !! HPI just released 3 new VTA bodies in a short time and we're still hungry for more. Hell, I don't even see the Challenger or 66 Mustang coupe on Ebay !!!
Just shows that VTA is on a roll.....

There's a company in Minnesota called R/C Car Kings that makes this 1977 Pontiac Firebird body. Problem is that it's too new of a model to fit in the VTA rule of late '60s to early '70s American Pony Cars.
