Mine is actually molded abs black plastic. The white one I believe he molded the hood and tail tank in fiberglass. The plastic hood was used as a mold from what I can tell and the tail tank from eBay. There is hood and tail tank on eBay under 1/4 racing I believe. Hardest part of a sprint conversion is the chassis. Outside of the tail and hood the rest is just flat plastic sheet. Need to redo my wing as well. Side (sail panel) is plastic but center is sheet aluminum and bends easily.

Carp of course
sure would be a lot easier for others to get into sprint cars if there was only somewhere to purchase them,not everyone can design and build their own

I can sell the body parts. All clear lexan, a bit more costly. $40 for the tail and $40 for the tail tank. Complete kit with both wings and molded side panels. $165

i hope you still have the ringer chassis i designed. I have had a problem with people wanting to copy my idea. If anyone wants to see more of them check out deadend raceway in iowa.

My old chassis


Took it out Sunday and ran against my old chassis. Maybe two more guys local and of course the Iowa guys at deadend.

Cartwheeled mine but nothing but a few scuffs. Think I'm geared too low as I had it maxed at mid straights.
