  1. Shelby Cobra 427 SC

    Thanks. Still a good looking build though.
  2. Shelby Cobra 427 SC

    Looks good, just one thing, your linkage for the carbs on the wrong side. Cobra carbs mount backwards with the vacuum secondary pod on the drivers side and the linkage and springs on the passenger side.
  3. Buddy Baker torino

    Bored over 351. They were running 355's and then later on finally settled on a 358 that they still run today.

  5. Tire dry transfers

    https://www.mikesdecals.com/advanced_search_result.php?keywords=tire+decals&search_in_description=0&osCsid=ovcqnhveksmitkhcv4tr4i3hk4 Mikes has what you need. They are decals instead of dry rub though. Just sand the tires so they look used and real, slap on a decal and flat clear and the edges disappear.

  8. AMT NASCAR/sportsman Nova swap

    Are you sure it's a rear steer chassis? Not sure what year it was, but at some point everyone went front steer no matter what make they ran. Since it's a Nova, wouldn't ya want to use a front steer too since that was stock? Clip the chassis and put the front steer on the rear steer chassis like we do the real cars?
  9. What makes these "Radial" ?

    IF you are talking about the tires, nothing but the words on the sidewall if it even says drag radial on it. Most are more low profile on the sidewall as compared to a real drag slick though. As for a real tire, it's the inner construction. Radial tires have their fabric and metal belts ran from one side of the bead to the other in an X fashion all the way around the tire. That's why you can't tell if they are low on air by looking cause the wont bulge very much even when they only have as little as 10 pounds in them. Bias ply tires have the same cloth or metal belts, but they run from bead to bead in a straight line. That's why they look flat even if they have 40 pounds of air in them, but if you drop that down ten pounds you can defiantly see a bigger bulge in the side wall. Drag radials are not worth much. Not for serious racers. Just made to fit new cars with small wheel wells. They are usually wayy to short in the sidewall to do any good as a drag tire too. They wont wrinkle enough in the side wall for a big high horsepower car. You need bias ply or normal drag tires for high hp cars. The sidewalls wrinkle up on launch cause the tire sticks to the ground as the wheel starts to move and then the tire starts to move as it runs out of sidewall. That way the sidewall takes some of the shock of the launch and it helps to keep the tire from breaking loose and spinning uncontrollably. This is a general answer just to get the point across as simple as I could so don't have a fit from the ones that want to get more technical.

    Weave some thread and make a border using paper match sticks.
  11. Detailed 4 cyl distributor?

    Welcome. They make the best ones I have every seen. I think M.A.D. makes them and SMBC (Scale Models By Chris) sells them too.

  13. The Striped Tomato Is Complete

    Those ARII wheels look more like the ones used on the tv show. The kits wheels and stripes are from the movie. Wheels and tires too small and the stripe is wrong for the tv car. The tv car had more of a rearward stripe where it curves on the rear quarter. It followed the quarter behind the window where it slants and goes more to the rear before it turns forward. The movie car looks more straight down like the kit decals.
  14. Original Revell 77 Trans Am decals wanted

    Ok guys, thanks. I'm not a Trans Am guy, so have no idea myself. I'm going to send Keller all of this and let him sort it out. I'm going to try and get him to sign up here too and he can can ask next time. lol

    My friend showed me these and this is what he wants, but it does not show the hood decal, I'm sure he wants it too.
