A-Man,it's an 1980's parma Dirt Modified Mudbus #10263.Sort of replicates some of the early style dirt track racers from the era.Here's a real example

that's gonna look sweet. :)

i only have one opinion, though. i think it'd look better if you'd use the short front a-arms. if you like that idea, and need a pr, send me a pm. i have some nip that are already dyed black. :wink:

I agree with Asso_man! I have yet to see an RC car which can carry off a rear bumper. However its looking awesome so far.

Yeah guys, back in the WAY back machine for dirt oval, the Syracuse guys ran those. I would say if you are going full-on period correct, the rear bumper is kosher.
