  • Excellent reissue. I remember this kit when I was young.  The kit was way advanced for it's time and still looks every bit as good.  As far as the tires go, it looks like Revel took the original two piece, removed the lettering and made them  a beautiful one piece.
  • Could the 240Z be just around the corner????

I'm trying to the 1320 Waynes tips on lowering funny cars, can anyone point me in the right direction.

Thanks, Vernon

Thanks Dale :) .

Vernon, I use 1320 Waynes tutorial . Cut the diff mounting points off the chassis and move them up as far as you can. cut about 4mm off the bottom of the roll cage and the tin work needs to be altered to fit. I also lowered the engine slightly by cutting the mounting bars off and attaching them lower,if you do this you will also have to remove a little material from  the mid plate housing where it sits on the chassis. the best part of this is if you get that right you dont have to cut the seat to clear the driveshaft. Hope that helps a bit, but I strongly advise anyone wanting to do this to find Waynes' tutorial with the pictures. It is on this forum somewhere.

Thanks for the tip Brett.  I'll have to check it out, as it really improves the look of these great old kits.  Many thanks and keep up the great work, always look forward to seeing your projects.
