The same as JL except on the RC one, the hood opens. Granted it opens the wrong way but it does open.

The reason the hood is cast shut on the JL version is because I mentioned to Mac Ragan that the Racing Champions version was incorrect in that detail. I'm guessing fixing it was impossible so the next best option was to just cast it shut. Honestly at that point crafting an entirely new casting might have been the best option- all of the JLs with cast shut hoods and trunks look atrocious. :(

Support your local demo derby.

Here's the same casting which was issued by Johnny Lightning starting in 2007 albeit with the hood cast shut as mentioned by Swifty.
