    Kastner Brophy Vitesses...


    I have a very limited run of "Kastner's Candy Box" Triumph Sport Six Trans Am car available for $27 USD plus shipping ~$7. I've made some mods and repaired the master of this rare race car which comes with a decal set.

    If Interested, please PM me.

    TIA,

    Where did you source the tires for the car in this picture? I like the stance of the car.

    PS @ DrDiff - BWA 13" wheels and inserts work great, I use Paul G Rev/Mon tires with them.
    The Sebring chassis will fit... oops! I gotta takes some pix for ya! I'll do it later today

    The width... 1.89 hmm That calls for some fender flares or a full Groupe 5 body kit to push it out that extra .0.2 inches.


    SLOP has been full of these types of scratch built cars.
    And SLOP encourages such body modifications that I mentioned!
    Okay I see you are undeterred... The cost of the casting is $27 + $7 shipping (Priority).

    ...SNIP... A slotit inline pod would fit but you'd have to scratch build a chassis. ...SNIP...

    The Vitesse is a very small car

    You said it was OK width but length was way over... How long is it?

    Cant help but think that a un-modified body would be very cool with a HRS II under it.

    Keep thinking... An HRSII will NOT fit under it. A slotit inline pod would fit but you'd have to scratch build a chassis which for the Trans AM Proxy race is against the rules.

    Heck, an MRRC Sebring chassis needs mods to fit under it. The Vitesse is a very small car

    You're missing a dimension... either that or the "box" is an envelope... BTW... no it won't fit (just barely side to side not at all lengthwise)

    Yeah, I can cast you up one... I'm going on "per order" so I don't have a bunch laying about.

    The body is a slosh casting... the chassis is from Beardog the wheels are BWA 32000-062 (with the 1/16" hole) in the rear BWA are 32002-093

    The price for the Ferrari is $24 + shipping and includes wind screen and wheel inserts. The oil canister, exhaust and intake stacks were scratch built
