Wow I'm very sorry to hear that, I don't even know what to say. Maybe build it like it just rolled at the end of the track, all the detail will still be amazing because you are a true artist. Best wishes Bob.
Small update after much tinkering and cutting I decided that the Cudas undercarriage just was not going to work. I will instead be using the Darts undercarriage and drive line modded to recreat my 1:1 here are a couple pics of where things are headed. The wheel base on the Dart kit was way off so a little cutting was in order, I think when this is all tied together things will work out fine.
Well it's begun, the undercarriage on the Cuda is not very accurate so deciding what to do. Any undercarriage I use will need to be modified as my car has coil overs and ladder bars and since my skills are limited this will be a real challenge for me, so any suggestions or advice is welcome. The other undercarriages are from the 71 Duster and the Hemi Dart kits, the Dart seems to be the most accurate but will still need modding. Bob
