Yeah, Mark, I noticed that too, and I am right there with him.

For those who aren't familiar with what we're talking about, I cleaned out a couple of vendors of these things back when Jules first got in trouble in the Far East (and god only knows how that will turn out once it starts). I was afraid my favorite "quick and easy" chassis would vanish, so I went without things in order to buy all I could. I even managed to acquire several spoke colors on the RTR chassis. I still love doing brass chassis and all, but for the occasional "quick and easy", I love 'em. It helps that they are pretty fast, too. I am finishing up a Porsche 914/6 race version that I used a Pioneer RTR chassis on, and its the shortest shortening yet. I have lengthened them, too, but I gotta tell ya, the short versions really fly.

Mark and I are from the same generation of gearheads, and those (American Racing Torq Thrust/Cragar SS) 5 spoke mags are kinda like a sin qua non for us. When our generation says, "mags" chances are that's what we are talking about.

As close as the Mako could get, the Opal GT is light and very fast, big smiles on everyone's face!

Yup the black really pops.
That is one sharp looking car, and it looks quick.
Da Boyz did good, as always!

Smart looker there, good job, and you can't go past a Pioneer chassis, I have a lot under various bodies as well.

Boys did a great job! I always loved the "Baby Corvette" growing up. Still looks good.
