You've made a great job of this car Kenooze the shell should be the Xcellerator

Looks sensational. Great detail and dedication to sourcing the parts!

Did you find a shell , wing and decal sheet to add? Would have been a great finishing touch!

Absolutely beautiful build. The attention to detail is superb.

Can anyone let me know where to get these black foam things? Thanks.

I dyed mine and they turned out great. Looks much cleaner IMHO. Thanks again for the idea.

Such an amazing build. I have looked at these photos more than I care to share.

I have always wondered why Brian's shock springs had the color rubbed off the outside?

Also, how did you get the gold e clips in the larger size? Thanks

I hadn't even noticed that and now it's really bugging me! :?

I'm sure that someone on here will have the answer.......

He rubbed the colour off the springs so people wouldn't know which colour spring he was running, he'd leave a small trace of the colour up one end so he could still identify which weight spring he was pulling out of his tool box

Its argued that by removing the paint, it made the spring slightly softer but i assume it would be an extremely small effect if at all

Ahh. That sounds like Brian. Thanks for the info. That is something that has bugged me for a long time.
