Hi Scott,
Your welcome. I would like to see a Spring release date as well! I told Tony that I would be more than happy help him out as much as I can. Once they get released and are successful. I think something that Cox never made, like a pro stock or a pro mod version would be neat as well.
How neat would a pro stock or a pro mod 50's and 60's Ford, Chevy or Mopar or even a pro mod 68 or 69 Camaro be? Or even a pro mod Hemi Cuda tether car? Or better yet, a tether version of the old Sox and Martin pro stockers?
The cool thing is, the possibilities could be endless with these cars! I'm just dreaming I guess.

Aw man, I can almost smell the 1/2a fuel and hear the high pitched whine of one of those little cars now!

Oh I so Hear you Shawn,The cars they could make would be awsome,Yeah NHRA PRO Stock!!! or Pro Mod!!! How about an Awsome front engine Dragster Like the Snake and Mongoose use to run,The amount of cars could be endless,You ahve your straight line cars drag cars,hell even some rice burners for the kids now days,and then you could do all sorts of cars for the Circle tether Line,Indy Cars,Stock Cars,lemans style cars,GT series..and all of these cars could be done either in Modern or Old School,and thne of coure do a seires of the free running cars again,Like the Dune Buggy,Baja Bug,SandBlaster,I would really like to see a Modern Style Funny Car!!!!!!!!!!,and thne i wish Autoworld would then offer a bunch of Acessories for the cars,differnt style of wheels,and dumby Engines,and decals,custom Chutes,and even a huge section on their website and a forum...Now thats what I myself like to see and it might be dreaming,but man how cool would it be to have all sorts of Clubs form with these cars.

Yeah it would be pretty cool to see all of that! I really like the idea of the stock cars. I'd bet that a NASCAR / NextTel series tether car would be a huge success as well.

Cool. Ijust won a Testors Pinto Funny Car on eBay. It has been 35 years since Iran one. It would be great to know how to get a manual and set this thing up. It doesn't come with any hardware either. So, Ineed to know what line to use, how long, anything else helpful...

Of course, it may not even run. Has anyone ever tried to convert a Testors over to a running cox engine?
