Members spare no effort modeling prototypes of various classes of cars. Rules do allow some artistic license, so cars are not required to be exact replications of prototype cars. The track, being relatively short, precludes blinding straight away speeds, so the inevitable crashes don't destroy cars. With their hard earned experience drivers respect other's modeling handiwork so severe wrecks are more the exception. And crashing doesn't win races. The hard plastic car bodies are well enforced using epoxy, other adhesives, fibreglas, even nylon window screen.

Using Devcon's Plastic Welder, a Methacrylate Adhesive which is a toughened structural adhesive for difficult-to-bond engineered plastics, composites, unprepared metals, ceramics, and dissimilar substrates modelers have now at their disposal an adhesive so strong that its use renders most bodies almost indestructible. When the rare severe body breakage occurs, this new adhesive makes for easy and permanent major repairs. Some members cars have been raced for 4 to 5 years, damaged, broken, repaired and repainted to look as good when the car was first raced. One member races a couple of old Revell bodies he first used in 1964 that have been lined and strenthened with nylon window screen and Plastic Welder, then stripped and repainted.
