It looks better in your picture than it does in AW's! :lol: The Boss and Mach1 bodies are still at the top of my AW/JL list of offerings.. They really did a great job with detailing them! :thumbsup::thumbsup:

Ditto- Philo !
FWIW- I bought my First modern AW T-jet today from a Train Shop, also for $12.00 ! It's got the Neo magnet and the latest gearing. Mine is a Release 7- Red & White '68 Camaro with White Flames. I have two positive comments on my car.
#1)- I actually was able to REMOVE the flames ! Which I read about doing here on HT, I think Bill Hall(?) posted about using warm water and his finger nail, I did the same, and used some Dawn Dish soap as well, it took about an hour of scratching, but they all came off without damage to the base paint. One thing I noticed is, the flames are actually decals, but then AW clear coats over them.
#2)- Dang it, but this is Now the fastest T-jet I own ! On my Dragstrip, I see it's all about the Neo traction magnet preventing Wheelspin, so this chassis always gets a massive holeshot ! I do note however, that all my Fastest T-Jets are quickly gaining on this car in the top end, but there isn't enough track before the Traps to catch it. Maybe if I had a Scale Bonneville salts flats, my other T-Jets would beat it ? LOL !

Nope, not me Ralph.

Cant remember who come up with the finner nail trick...?

and it is one of their better castings... Now if they could just release some new body styles to compliment their better running chassis.

THe Petty Charger is a TYco HP7 so it is faster and holds the track better it being a more advanced design.Still compared to an original Tjet with skinnies it(The Autoworld Mustang) is vastly superior.
