    Nice job on the paint. I'm just not seeing Tracks. Or at least, it's not Tracks enough for me. Mostly it's just that it's still clearly a Lamborghini... and Tracks isn't a Lamborghini.

    Very nice.

    My only complaint about the ridiculous versatility of this mold is that without extensive resculpting/reshelling, we end up with a line-up of G1 Autobot cars that ALL turn into pseudo-Lamborghinis... Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Red Alert, Tracks, Wheeljack... heck, even the Battlechargers and maybe some Throttlebots too.

    I'd be thrilled if Hasbro actually released some new molds based on exactly the same engineering and design, but with some different parts to depict different car modes.

    But I digress... this is a great bash. It really looks like Tracks! Sweet!

    Aw, c'mon that would be the balls! Do it up!
    And Tracks looks really good. Im doing one myself out of streaker, but totally not what you think.
    Great job! You really did "Make Tracks"

    jaw drop my man...this is really fresh ideas to classic line, what we can do for one mold is sumtimes same when we apply to alt/bt lines...either intact or detachable is not important but if u can do it intact it is more awesome..it is not impossible..i'll take urs (and Wheeljack's Track too) to be my sample to make my Bt track to be more accurate..thnks fo nice custom

    you realize with just a tiny bit of sanding on the top of the feet, you could swing them around to face front, right?

    Nice job on the painting and modifications. I honestly think this can be done rightly, and by that I mean modifying the car form. You'd have to chop up the chest/cab piece so that you end up with a much shorter cab section, which would be at the top of the chest piece, and the forward portion would continue the lines of the hood piece. Of course, you'd also want to flatten the raised back portion a bit more level, and slightly re-shape the front end as well, but That's the easier part. Kudos for being the first to actually do this.

    That is a fabulous Tracks.

    And yes, we need other car molds besides the Gallardo and 350Z. Not a Vette fan myself tho.

    Wow, no surprise, but this mold looks awesome in metallic blue with a flame decal. I kind of have the same feeling as Smog, but still this looks amazing. Great job.

    Seriously though, how hard would it be to, at the very least, reshell this mold just for a little variety. COME ON HAS/TAK! Come on!!!

    The launchers look like they came from Cybertron Megatron/Galvatron.
