Also notice how far out the body hangs over the wheels. That chassis is an Xray T2 008 under there.

T1's make great VTA cars - I've used 2 different versions of the T1 in the past, and they both worked well. Finding parts can be tricky, but some racers still have T1 parts lying around (I'm one of them...)

That brick-like profile is perfectly suited for moving opponents out of your way, although the wood paneling on the sides suggests it's a 2x4...

All kidding aside, I like the paint work, and these bodies are known to be quite durable.

This pic has to be my all time favorite simply because it has a 1972 Pontiac Firebird followed by a 1970 Hemi Cuda and a 1969 Camaro.
