I have the HPI66 Mustang GT ( 17519 ) and it comes with the rear wing... Is the rear wing legal to mount?

Just check the rules and they say no wings...

the high downforce wing would not be legal.

Does anyone have a photo of the Pegasus bodies? I'd really like to see their Mach 1, but can't find photos anywhere.

Actually the '67 shelby comes with a wing as well - and its not even legal to use it for the HPI Challenges

Like its been said - if its not molded into the body or more than a rear spoiler, it ain't legal

Who has the Pegasus bodies online? I have found a few listings but they all show out of stock (and no pictures).

Thanks Kevin K for posting pics.
FlyingMonkey looking forward to the Camaro ones also.

The Pegasus bodies have pretty good front detail, the rear is "simplified" to get the bodies off the bucks. The Mustang is NOT a '70, it has the '69 headlight placement (outboard) and looks pretty good from the front. I like it. Both the Camaro and Mustang are "squatty" looking to me--too wide for their length. This is true of most RC bodies, but these it seems especially so. The Mustang moreso than the Camaro.

Try Horizon hobby they sell them too.....

Badsign....like Scottrik said the front has good detail not true to real life but looks close enough for most people. It looks really close to this model of a 69 more so then a 70. http://www.diecastfast.com/Merchant2...DCF/CTGY/RVW15
