Autoworld finally updated their website for the last release of NHRA cars, as well as adding the names of the Release 9 upcoming release.

No pics yet, but here are the 8 cars:

1.John Force - Ford Mustang Funny Car (Castrol GTX)
2.Jack Beckman - Funny Car (Freightliner)
3.Todd Lesenko - Funny Car (TAP IT)
4.Alexis Dejoria - Funny Car (Patron)
5.Cruz Pedregon - Funny Car (Snap-On)
6.Bob Bode - Funny Car (Stupid Fast Racing)
7.Jed Coughlin - Pro Stock (JEGS)
8.Allen Johnson - Pro Stock (Mopar)


I'm hoping the Patron funny car is the real livery.
Was also hoping for the Courtney Force Traxxs funny car, but maybe next time.

I hope the Jegs and Allen Johnson Mopars will be new molds, not like last year's V. Gaines artwork on a generic pro-stock body...

If they can have more than one mold for the funnies there's no reason they can't have more than one pro-stock mold...
Uhhh... the reason would be Capital, you know. Cash??? They will put out generic bodies with their detailed body wrap to keep costs down.


Keep in mind that they don't make their money on slot cars alone, in fact they probably make most of it off models and diecast.

The NHRA diecast section on the AW site now has pictures of what we could be seeing for the wraps on their Release 9 slot cars. They have pics of all of the cars in that upcoming release except the John Force and Cruz cars.

Hopefully the Cruz Pedregon car wil be the same one as the Snap-On set car.

There are some nice looking cars in the bunch.

Also, some of the new Top Fuel dragsters now on those diecast pages might be a preview of what we will see in AW's NHRA TFD Release 11.
