    Can anyone confirm the length of Nascar racing cars? The most current length I can find runs 200.5 inches. Sounds about right.

    I am not sure about total length, but I do know that Cup cars have a 110 inch wheel base and Busch cars have a 105 inch wheel base.
    or that was the case when they downsized the cars back in '81.
    Busch cars might have the same 110 inch wheel base now.

    The weight is closer that back then.

    At least with miniatures you don't pay that much attention to the differences in wheel base of the 2 series. Otherwise plastic and Diecast wouldn't get away with using the same tooling to produce both series' cars.

    Your figures are correct Dnlgtr, 110" for cup, 105" for Busch.
    No one is sure about the new "car of tommorrow" as they have not
    yet finalized the specs.

    Thanks, I did find the wheel base measurements, but I could only find 1 site
    that gave a total vehicle length. However, using wheel base measurements, I should be able to get pretty close.
