    After the release of our Modifieds @ Christmas time. It was time for a much needed break from modding. Seems we've been releasing Mods and track's one right after another.. After taken a bit of time off, I had wanted to get back to doing some Road Racing mod's after releasing 3 Short Track mods one after another, and a Truck mod. It was time to get back into doing an RC mod.. A friend of mine Highbank shares a passion with me for RC, and especially Trans Am racing of all era's. Well after a bit of discussion, I decided I wanted to do a Trans Am Mod.. Highbank is in charge of all the long hours going into research and including painting for the Mod..

    First Model off the factory floor is Mustang.. Of course with having a friend who lives in Australia, I couldn't help but paint a test paint of an Australian driver..

    Here's a quick picture of our Mustang right off the factory floor.

    Thanks for the kind words. Yeah, I have visions, of several types of carsets, that I would like to see done, even after the mod is released to the public. Also starting to think, maybe we should do up one or two proper RC tracks to go along with the mod.. But don't tell Highbank that thou.. He would go nuts if I told him I was doing some tracks, with car modeling.. hahaha Just kidding Bill. :)

    Thanks for the kind words. Now I'm in the process of building the cockpit, and adding digital gauges. Highbank will be getting us some more images of the interior when he goes to the next Trans Am race next weekend. This mod build is a complete joy to create. Were opening the doors with taking our time, and creating this as realistic as possible. interior1.png interior2.jpg

    Thanks J.R. means a lot coming from you. :)

    Now first one of our tracks we've been developing to go with our mod project, is Sebring. After weeks of busting my a$$ on this track, last night I had a blast racing my old Porsche GT3 online paint scheme on the track. Brought back a ton of memories of racing over @ Speedsims. Highbank came up with the idea since we are building from scratch a 2017 Trans Am mod, we might as well release some tracks that are on the schedule for Trans Am 2 Series .

    Our last car to be created for our mod is the Camaro. This is just a couple of quick shots, but will look totally different within a week or so.

    This will be my last full fledge mod with multiple cars, for a while. So I know Highbank will knock this one out of the park with his paints. Then, we will be doing some planning for some out of the box stuff for the future. :) Which I'm very excited about! :)
