Great Job! What an incredible car! Love the F1 inspired exhaust. A real museum piece - you should be proud.

Sweet...that's gotta be a one-of-a-kind car. When you're done with it, apply a coat of auto wax to give the bare aluminum protection from the elements, oxidation and fingerprints. :)

Wheels that I've polished 3 or 4 years ago still look as shiny now as they did right after polishing.

I didn’t even notice that Jesus has a Ra/Car listed on eBay.

Might be good for some comparisons

I've been watching it to see if he gets any bids on it. Definitely the same suspension and trans.

Did pretty good. Wasn't too surprised though. Rare car and in exceptional condition. I think the one of a kind body and exhaust put it over the top. I had considered keeping it but the rest of my collection is from the 80's to early 90's. It sort of looked out of place sitting between an rc10 and a traxxas sledhehammer. It went to a good home so I was happy.

I knew it'd do well with the body and exhaust. But I was still surprised. probably the most I've seen an 1/8th scale go for.
