Maybe we'll have more options as the class grows in popularity.

What body would you like to have? I think an AMX would be pretty cool. Here's some cool AMX photos.

Plus a really nice period shot.

Hello (this means you Dale) A firebird/trans am would be a given for this class. A second gen 70-73 would be the most accurate, and the easiest to pull out of lexan, due to the shape of the body. (Amx would be sweet too!)

I agree a 2nd gen Camero/Firebird would be sweet. I'd also like a '69 Camero but do understand what it takes to make the molds.

I'm trying to think what other cars ran that series.

IMO, variety will spice up this class, otherwise it will be just like a bunch of Mazda 6 clones after a while. Right now it looks fresh and realistic which I love. I'm liking the RCGT class for the same reason.

Ya know...i have no clue who put these crap rules together ...even just for the bodies alone. Take a look at what was raced backed then ...yes even a falcon and a chevy 2 nova! They should atleast totally allow for anytype of body style that was in the real trans am series.
I personally think that whom ever did put this series together was more into r/c racing and not really into ol school muscle.

The rules were carefully written after a lot of thoughtful input from racers and organizers over a long period of time. The body choices are what is currently available to represent the American muscle car era of Trans Am. The series' success speaks for itself. Now you have a clue.

Rather rude to come in completely clueless as to what went into creating the rules and bash the creators.

Why don't you spend some time creating a new class of racing and see if yours comes close to being as popular.

The rules are based on bodies already available. I am sure if a company make a realistic Dart or Falcon it would be considered.

The problem is the bodies currently available. Trying to get the body makers to create new molds is worse than pulling hens teeth. The goal is eventually to get to that point, but unless the bodies are available, we're stuck with what's in production. As far as 'crap rules', you couldn't be further from the truth. Trans Am wasn't a muscle car class. It was a 5 liter and under pony car class. You will never see a Chevelle, Buick GSX, Super Bee, GTO, Charger, Impala, 67 or later Nova run as a VTA body.
