The best help you'll get is at the track!

You'll find most ppl will have the same thing, and the hobby shop will have parts for those cars as well. Just ask them, they will help you out.

If there is a Vintage Trans-Am Racing-vta I would start there. All spec, good class to get started with.

Hope this helps,

If you are truly in THE Raidernation, come on over to Nor-Cal Hobbies in Union City for some help. They have asphalt, carpet and two off-road tracks on site.

There is a both on-road and off-road racing tomorrow (Saturday). And, on the Memorial Day weekend (May 26-29), is the Reedy Road Race of Champions (on-road) featuring the best drivers from all over the world.

And a pair of Associated B6 buggies for turf and clay tracks.
