7 Awesome VTA Bodies From PROTOformKicking of this list of the 7 awesome VTA bodies from PROTOform is this 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 body which is probably the most recognizable due to its iconic styling. Famed race driver, Mark Donohue, raced this car back in the day and won the 1969 Trans-Am series championship. The Chevrolet Camaro Z28 could be seen dominating the racetrack as well as tearing up the streets thus making the ’69 Camaro one of the most loved American V8 powered muscle cars. PROTOform captured its iconic look in 1/10-scale complete with deep-set grille and headlights, side louvers and triple-lens tail lights. The latest molding technology was used to form this body from a single piece of high-quality polycarbonate while still maintaining realistic front and rear undercuts. This officially-licensed product meets all VTA Class rules and includes a detailed decal sheet, protective overspray film and window masks to help ensure you end up with a great looking finished product when the paint has dried.

If needed, you can tune the aero effects by installing the included rear spoiler. Not surprisingly, the body is officially licensed and meets all the VTA class rules.

J71 Clear Body—#1526-00

7 Awesome VTA Bodies From PROTOformA VTA favorite is arguably the eye-catching PROTOform J71 clear body which is a nod to the full size AMC Javelin that was the 1971 Trans-Am Championship winning car. Clearly a lot of effort was put into this body to replicate the styling cues of its full-size counterpart. The front of the car features an add-on nose with air dam. When mounted with shoo goo and 2mm screws, it becomes an integral part of the body. Because this area of a race body is the most prone to racing wear and tear, a second nose is supplied with the body. This configuration allows for molding a lightweight, durable .030 Lexan body, which in turn aids the handling ability of any VTA chassis.
