In its first year of Grand Am Cup competition Ford and the 2005 Mustang driven by David Empringham and Scott Maxell dominated all others to clinch the drivers, manufacturers, and team championships in the GS class.

 

 AUTOArts a producer of 1/18 die cast models briefly ventured into making 1/24th scale slot cars. One of its products was  an RTR Mustang modeling the Empringham/Maxwell car. Like many RTR’s: great idea, awful execution with a plastic chassis and little motor driving marble hard tires. In 2007 bought the RTR car because it made a wonderful 1/24th shelf model of a car not produced by other model kit manufactures. Last week realized it fit widthwise an old existing chassis. I lengthened the wheel base and voila! a cool looking good handling fast slot car!

Hello Max,

 

IF you can find other AUTOarts Mustangs they might fit the H&R chassis you race. Would be nice additions to your fine cars.
