VSR built the 1980 Indy that took Mark Cobb to the finish of the I-600 XC race. It was the only vintage sled to complete the entire 3-day event. Congratulations MARK!!
We now have the 79/80 Centurion hoods in the correct midnight blue gel coat as well as the INDY hoods. Again, the only centurion or INDY hoods with the correct inside and outside finish. Also, we now offer the 78 TX/ TXL 2-tone full gel hoods too. Like our 76/77 hoods, the 78s have the correct midnight blue and white combination eliminating the need for paint. Our tunnels are also the closest to OEM you can find. Check our store for details or give us a call.
Why are our fiberglass products more expensive that the others that are on the market?
Actually, it's by design. At VSR, we make sure you're getting EVERYTHING you pay for. As an example; Our midnight blue gel is an exact match and very expensive. To create that color, its actually 3 different colors / layers of gel coat. This is necessary to give you the correct color of blue whether in sunlight or indoors. It also gives the correct color to the inside of the hood. The competitors use a single thin layer of gelcoat. Good for racing, but not durability or form. Our pans have reinforcing cloth just as the originals did, and we aren't aware of anyone who offers that. Additionally, our products are thicker and stronger than the competitors' products. These added materials and the labor to apply them provide a superior product but there's obviously a cost to do it. VSR has also spent thousands on improving the finish of the molds to provide a vast improvement in the finish of the gel. So yes, we could be cost competitive with anyone, but we choose not to.
VSR will be sponsoring the 2018 VSCA National Championship Show in Rochester. We shoud have some products on display so stop by and see our sleds and products for yourself . Most of our show sleds will also be on display.
We also restore sleds and may show some in the “Restoration” section. We just completed the restorations of a 78 TX250, a 79 TX and a 79 TX-C. The 1979 TX340 was built as a raffle sled for the 2018 National Show. For into on how to purchase tickets, go to www.2018NationalShow.com for details. Next on the rack are; a 79 RXL, a 78 Eagle River RXL and a 78 440 RXL followed by a pair of 73 starfires. Then a sno twister and a couple more indys. As you can see, we are booked with restorations through all of 2018.
