I have the doh 1/16 kit. I'm wondering if anyone has attempted to make a aftermarket nose cone and spoiler to convert it to a Daytona

The DOH kit was based on a Dodge Daytona racer. It was a later body style, though.

Is the off set in the engine block supposed to be there or is that from age of the molds

I cut out that section of the body and used sheet styrene to make a plug .

 

 

Is the off set in the engine block supposed to be there or is that from age of the molds

 

The engine in mine is centered in the chassis .   Or are you talking about the engine itself ?   The driver side cylinder head is slightly forward of the passenger side .

  Christopher ,   I checked a new DOH kit and two Street Charger kits and they are all the same .   I had to remove the alignment pins to assemble the halves of my engine block ,  and the rear is too long on the drivers side .  It needs to be filed down till it is flush so that the rear plate and bellhousing will mount properly .   In the two photos ,  the black engine block is the new DOH and the white primered one is an old DOH block .  I know I did some sanding on the old one but it wasn't as bad as the new ones are .   Just make sure the front is flush as shown so the cylinder heads and intake manifold will fit properly .

Thank you guys. TooOld I filed it down and got it where I could work with it. It was a lot of plastic taken off but left enough to work with

The pics are great. Especially the one with trans. Great views of engine oil staining for us detail fanatics. Thanks.
