    The 2016 mustang will be avail first time factory built as right hand drive for export. It would be nice for y'all if dodge offered the challenger as a RHD export to australia too. Bet you and your mates would love to have these.

    The challenger hellcat w 707 RWHP is insane but now they have added twin turbos to feed the supercharger, this is called compound supercharging. I think its 850 RWHP its called the challenger hellcat X

    Looking forward to seeing the Mustangs avaliable here, but will be way too expensive for most. And a challenger or charger would be cool to see i think. Yes , i am very familiar with the Hellcat, and 707 is a bit of a fudge from what i hear, that was just to keep the insurance down, have seen footage of 800 at the wheels from a stock vehicle, but the X version will be insane i reckon.

    I started with the Revell 70' Cuda, and the 55 Chev pro sportsman kit, and wanted to make something you might see on street outlaws.
    Used the chassis and wheels from the sportsman kit, and a 610 CI Hemi from "Big Ears Resin"
    . It is one hell of a motor, and no manifold would fit, so i made a sheet metal style tunel ram and also customized some resin carbs to look like Split Dominators.

    DAMN Dale that looks GOOD!!!!! (Everyone that happens to be MY "610 Hemi"), he's talkin' about as "Big Ears Resin" LOL (Hence my Avatar!)

    Ya did a GREAT job man! WOW! Theres NOW a intake that might be a little easier to work with for that 610 Hemi BTW! (yeah, you'll be getting some!)
    Question the split Dominators, those with the 610 when ya got it? (I can't recall what Joel had gotten from my resin casting way back when..... -I ask that too, as I got others to add as well! AND I may attempt doing a split carb set up (your getting to me man on this shit!) LOL

    EDIT:
    That freakin interior looks GREAT too! Where did you get the seat belts from man?

      Thanks Big Ears, that engine is an incredible piece of work mate, well done, as for the split's, i made them just by cutting a pair of pro stock carbs in half and playing around to finish them off. The seat belts are from a di-cast i wrecked a few years ago for the wheels and bits. I think i can make them from rubber bands next time. Look forward to another one of these engines mate, got plans already. :)

      Your welcome man! Thats some fine freakin' work I gotta say! I'm not sure what part of it I'm more impressed with, the engine I molded that you built, OR the interior with whatever the belts came from but the damned detail all around is impressive! (Be a mean car in real life!)

      You got me..... I'm gonna dump one of my 610's in a '70 Coronet!!!!!! Pro-Streetin' that beast!

      As for the 610 tho, I got a few tricks up my sleeves and a few that will come to being made..... Not just for that engine but others!!!!!

          I built this when I was in my 7th grade elective class, Before I was bitten by the mopar bug. [​IMG]I remember this model having cushy rubber tires and real spark plug 'wires'. Man, I may go out tonight and buy another model...paint the exhaust manifolds in rust, shocks in KYB white, block in orange, toothpick torsion bars....try to be as real world correct as possible.

            MPC still makes the 1/16 scale General Lee, but the box art shows NO confederate flag. The PC police got to em. Saw one at hobby lobby. They also have the Petty STP Charger too which the general lee kit was based on.

            My question is, (from what I HEARD) that they took Rebel flag decal out of the decal sheet too! -Do the new kits include the decal or is that true too? They totally removed it all together?

            I got a new mpc 1/25th general lee from walmart. No stars n bars on the roof on the box art, but it depicts the models pieces pieces on the side of the box in black and white including decal sheet. It shows the flag on the decal sheet. I have not opened the kit for a look inside yet. It isnt the general without the flag.

              It may be awhile. I'd imagine if its shown on the side of the box its in there.

                <<<<< PC ALERT >>>>>>>

                Well, what is more offensive:
                [​IMG]
                [​IMG]

                I dont see The PC police running the German plane models off the shelf (although I did see one with fine print saying the swastika was represented as historical only...maybe they ought to put the same footnote on the flagged General Lee models...)

                Pishta, Honestly? I don't see EITHER "offensive" at all! They were BOTH some sort of history worldwide.... like it or not, its true!

                  Its because the liberal PC police in this country have to "correct for history" to kiss the asses of the BLM crowd. This is their newest pet project. The libs dont feel that way about the swastika simply because they are prob anti semites. Actually the latest and greatest wikileaks DNC dump proved that.

                  I went to school with quite a few black kids Back in the 70s and 80s. All of us watched the dukes of hazzard growing up. Nobody gave the flag on the general lee a second thought. The show wasnt racest either. PC run amock. Glad for wikileaks dump, really shows the dems asses.
