    Digging on the Mustang.



    You guys might as well cool out on your camaro dreams, as it would require another expensive licensing agreement - and since they already have one with Ford, I don't see another with Chevrolet on the horizon.

    I must admit these new Rally vehicles look cool, but anybody else think the shells are too wide??

    As a Fiesta owner I can tell you that the outer edge of the tyre is far closer to flush with the bodywork than Traxxas have modelled.

    I like the direction Traxxas is going with the factory paint. You can only have so many releases until the old traxxas "style" graphics get old. The diversity is refreshing.

    Maybe some thicker hexes will pull the wheels out, but, I think traxxas may have did this to keep the body low without interfering with suspension movement.

    The rally car and gymkhana car have extended front and rear track widths and widebody fenders to cover them. This is the case with most professional level streetcar-based racecars.

    EDIT: I'm pretty sure I misread your post initially. I see what you're saying. The official press photos in the gallery look better. I wonder what the production one will look like. http://www.traxxas.com/products/elec...ion_drift2.jpg

    Thanks RustlerRacer. What I meant to say was that I thought the Traxxas shells were just a bit too wide. I know the 1:1 cars have big wide wheel arches, but I didn't think they were that wide.

    Anyway, just me being picky. A quick change of wheels to something with a small offset would fix that instantly. To be fair it's much better to have a slightly wider shell and absolutely no chance of tyre rubbing, than to have to trim bits off the wheel arches.

    Not bashing Traxxas or complaining just saying what I see. I still have one on my wish list!!

    because of the gigantic motor and the inclusion of a big block mount that does waterproof electronics too. hurry up and release the fiesta and spare parts
