Well I guess if a person liked this kind a thing... :dance: Notice a few little differences from the box set car, wing, decal, injectors, but still just a pretty race car no matter how you look at it. That goes for any Chappy in my book.

A Chappy and it's a Slot It. What's not to like?

We race these as one of our classes in our routed track club in NC. Upgrades to shore 22 tires and a little weight does wonders. I've never actually noticed the high wing adversely affecting the handling of these cars if properly set up. I would suggest the differing wheel base on the various Classic series is a bigger factor for what car performs best on what layout.

The Chapparral certainly garners my vote on the coolest looking car on the track. How about a tutorial on making the wing function like on the Cox cars...
