We have added the 79 TX hood in the two tone gel coat. We also have the 80 and newer free air TX / TXC style hood in the midnight blue gel coat. Although these have received several requests, we will likely only keep 1 in-stock.
The TX front bumper grills (inserts) are also availble now as are the centurion air inlet cover and the TX style air inlet cover. Unfortunately, the work with the plastic company didn't go as anticipated. The costs were higher than anticipated and the turn-around time was far too long. This is due to proto-type level molds that just weren't production level. We would still like to provide the dash and trunk parts, but will need to go in another direction.
VSR was a platinum level sponsor and the show went very well. We delivered 10 pieces of fiberglas. Most importantly, VSR customer sleds topped the 76-79 and 80-85 classes with the 79 Centurion promoted to the National finalist rank - just barely missing out on the National Seld of the year.
We are trying to get some RXL skis. They are a month behind schedule at the machine shop but should be done in a few days
FAQ: 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.
We are currently wrapping up the three RXLs. The 79 was completed and on "display" at the national show. It was clearly the top race sled there. The 78 Eagle River and the 78 440 are now rolling chassis. The motors are next with anticipated delivery of late September. Both sleds are stunning with The Eagle River having a chromed tunnel. Everything has been thrown on it and its a jewel.
