Hi Paul,

 

The ED Cyclone is super cool. It's an early 70's MAC body so it came along after the 1969 MCS - USRA series. Reading the race report it sounds like almost everyone ran the Dynamic Dodge Charger. I don't know if the current Charger bodies have been ahhhh.......modified to please current racers. Even if it has it and the ED Cyclone might be the only current choice.

 

I want to run a Dynamic Torino Talladega like this beautiful LASCM car. Even it is only talked about as "coming soon" in the race report:

There doesn't seem to be much choice out there right now. I would think one could build a "Korrect" stock car roller and put whatever body on it that's available until something period comes along.....hopefully!

I think the current retro Fairlane by O/S is the champion stock car we used to use...

Thanks for the info and advice Rick & Tony :good:

Would be really cool for someone to pull these low and mean looking shells as they'd make for some wickedly sweet cars :D

Simple question, the wheelbase for these monsters is it 4.5" for all ?

I can only give you the wheelbase of the bodies I have (Torino and Cyclone), they are both 4.5" wheelbase.
