    Default well i can officially say

    i have fallen in love with the DTM Opel Vectra from 2005

    heres link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hBRf-eo6Hqc

    would love to find out more about it but not had chance yet got to love the dtm cars just cause they are completely mad V8 engines, wide arch kits and literally on the floor.

    what i was wondering is there any replicas that have been made of them before or even a vectra that is rear wheel drive apart from the machines

    since im fabricator just thinking of trying to find a vectra shell just the shell and a complete omega v6 or something and fabricate the vectra c into rwd use all the omega electrics and such but custom mounts etc the lot this will get rid of all the canbus system but have it as a track car with the bare minimum

    got my rover track car and that is the same just minimum to pass mot no luxuries etc that all thinking same for a vectra

    say if i found a front impact vectra c shell or burnt out one preferably sand blast it etc weld all custom mounts, tunnel etc into the vectra from the omega and use all the electrics

    could it be done???

    the look of the car is indeed awsome, i don't know of any kit that is avv but if you are a fabricator and you have the time i bet you could make something up, good luck with it if you decide to take on that task...

    well ive just spent best part of 10 hours drawing up ideas etc with my workshop foreman no work in but still get paid for been there and we reckon we have worked out how to make a vectra c rwd since having mine in bits lol as said earlier we need a complete omega and either a burnt out shell or damaged one but were the chassis is still fine. matter of making custom mounts, transmission tunnel and rear floor, but it is possible

    As for the kit i need to find better pictures of the car or even go find one and take photos of it so i get the basis of the kit and then fabricate it out of sheet steel

    ive certainly got the time and patience to do it but more research is needed and photos of the dtm car

    you can buy a die cast model from ebay, i got one for about £15.00 iirc and the detail is great....that will help you no end i think and it could also be mounted on the dash after you have built a full size one..
