Hey all,

For all the Earnhardt sr. fans out there, is there a difference between the Action Movie cars and the Action Historical cars? I'm asking about the details, ie., the spoiler thickness, tires, etc. The reason I ask is, the Rusty Wallace or Richard Petty Pontiac (Action Historical series) I got, the spoiler is about the same thickness as the metal plates we use on the firing ranges and the tires looked brutal. Thanks for any input.

no i dont believe theres any difference i think they are the same cars just dirtied up to look like raced versions...and a pretty poor job on that (just my opinion).. they make good donors as you can use easy lift off to clean the windows...

Ditto
Same cars-just nasty dirt versions. They went overkill on the dirty look. Like exagerated like Days of Thunder-that bad thumbsdown

Hey boys,

Just got the car and you guys were dead on, what a mess. Going to have to do something with that windshield. The e-bay pics made it look so clean, oh well, I know for the next one. Thanks.

Easy lift off will work on the windows. Do NOT use fingernail polish remover it will ruin a window

Thanks jr88sr3,

What exactly is Easy Lift? Is it a cleaning product I can get at grocery store?

Hey jr88sr3,

Ref. that Easy Off Lift, your sure it was E-Bay that you found that product. When I search, I find wheel chair lifts, some crazy bra thing and automotive tire lift. Thanks for the info.
