Trifecta is due to three artists working together to build this beautiful machine.
Still needs wires and a guide, but 98% done as you see it.
Chassis by Dennis Sampson.
Body by Nesta Szabo.
Interior by Jairus Watson.

That's a beauty. Totally captured the look of a real track veteran. Sometimes people forget that all race cars are not perfect and shiny.

 

May be the only slot car I've seen that requires that you remove the wheels to separate the body from the chassis.

 

Love that body style. Actually owned a real 70 1/2 Z-28 R/S. LT-1,M-22, 3.73 12 Bolt, deluxe interior. Code 75 Cranberry red with black stripes. Bought it from the original owner around 1978 for $800 after the carb caught fire and it was burned under the hood. Would like to pick up another for that price.

It sure looks stunning! 
But based on My experience With Scaleauto 1:24 Racing, I expect the small distance between tires and body Could be troublesome, a hardbody rubbing on tires is a disaster.

Low..., Nester is very experienced at building & running hard body cars. I would expect he has run into what you say & knows how to resolve it when ir occurs.
