Hey DARKSIDE, you should be all over this one. :wink:
The old batmobile yes. The newer one maybe but not so much. From the little reading I did it appears both cars are replicas so from that angle, no neither are unless they were built on vintage frames. It also depends on whose idea of vintage. Maybe the 1989 car could qualify given its historical nature.

Either way neither raced trans am.

What was the point of this?

You be the judge. Here's a couple pics of a Parma Cuda body that my friend Looped Designs Paintworks painted last year.
Note that the Parma body does not come with any stickers at all. So all the headlight, tail lights, grill, bumper, etc. design was painted by Looped.
Also notice how far out the body hangs over the wheels. That chassis is an Xray T2 008 under there.

especially when the mods say its up to an admin to fix - and then the admin doesn't reply, kills the thread and locks the old USVTA thread...nice customer service - acting like a stereotypical IT guy, don't care about the users
Oh no you're not, I see one more "dig" from you & you're taking a little vacation from RC Tech. in case you forgot, this is a FREE forum & you are NOT a customer, & we mods are NOT customer service people. You have a problem with that, talk to IB or you can find another forum to bug.

I think he is just complaining because you have to jump posts to follow a single conversation and they are not all posted in a book like format where you can read all posts on a single topic. Correct me if I am wrong.

Is it horizontal scrolling maybe from the large embedded images? I have a widescreen monitor and it all fits for me.
