Hi, The best thing to do is research this particular car. Look at how the parts are installed. Google your make of car and study the pictures. It looks like one 1/4 scale servo for the steering. Some chassis will use a 1/4 scale servo for the throttle and brake. Some use a standard size servo. Study pics for fuel tank mount. Do you have all the parts? (Side impact ,Bumpers ,Engine.)

You'll hard pressed to find a pic of that car with any details. Thats a very old new era or thunderbolt. PT is right a 1/4 scale servo goes up front for steering. The only problem using a 1/4 scale servo for steering is the servo saver becomes the "weak link". No matter the torque of the servo the saver itself will spring and you wont have much steering. But for a prostock you should be okay. It also uses a 1/4 scale servo for the throttle. You can make an adapter plate to use a small servo if you want. You dont have to have a big servo for the throttle and brake. Do you have the clutch bell and housing?

There are members project here that have pictures posted. WCM cars have pretty much the same setups between older and newer cars. I have seen pics of your chassis posted but the pics are not that great.

This is the best i can do at the moment. This is basically the same thing you need just the location of the servo is different. Well its telling me the photobis to big. I dont know how to resize it with my phone. I'll try to shoot you an email.
