I bought new VFC Charger bodies and noticed they were thicker than the last batch I bought.

 

Anyone notice this or are there different thicknesses you can purchase LOL?

No different thicknesses. At one time Gene used the wrong plastic. They are now all correct.

The only thing bad about Retro is admitting that you remember doing it originally.

Some vary. Most are .010 on the sides. With that being said I have seen some (maybe 5%) that are a couple thou under/over.

A motor is only as fast as the chassis it's in.
