Thanks for your suggestion that hot rod body would look nice with VTA wheels. That car body looks like The Morgan.
The IROC camaro looked good to .

DARKSIDE, On page 736 post 11032 you put an ad from Team C about bodies, (Mustang, Camaro). I looked at Team C site and Hobby Pro, but find no listing for these.
Do you know where to find them?

No but that's what they had advertised on FB. I transferred the information to here. Sorry if any confusion. Might contact Team C on Facebook and see.

BTW I often find HPI and other VTA bodies at FLHS (covered with dust) for $20 or $25.

I am with you!

Here's my difficulty what bodies are readily available in the US for purchase?
Car's like the alfa, bmw, porsche, datsun z, etc...
This is how he suckered me into a 3rd class to race lol.. but now I have a reason to paint that Tamiya 911 RSR body I have stored away

Getting ready to order some PF tires...can anyone confirm if they will fit on the HPI rims? Found a couple sets I 'd like to use & didn't want to assume.

Thanks, Denney
