Tough call i wish i could vote for a second and third place car but Tcustoms FWD car is an off the wall build .
If a jobs not worth doing then its certainly not worth doing well.
A problem shared is a problem halved but an advantage shared is no advantage at all.

I actually dig your Eagle a lot - I think this was the first Traxxas car I ever saw in a French RC Mag. So believe me, you have a fan here :mrgreen:

Sometimes I shake my head at what garners all the votes but to each their own. I voted for Snow fox's SRB cause I love SRBs.

Thanks for the vote Shodog!!

I didnt do my self any favours with the crappy pictures but i was pushed for time. I have managed to enter every moth this year, but it aint easy coming up with the goods each time.

I havnt done it any justice as at as it is a custom built SRB with titanium parts including the roll bar. As some people may know bending titanium is not easy!!

This car was built by Neil Derby so I may re-enter this at a later date with better pictures and background story to give it the chance it deserves :mrgreen:

congrats tCustom - a new record has been set I think, both in terms of winning by a significant margin, as well as winning early in a member's life! :mrgreen:

Congratulations Tcustom, a top notch distinctive build you have there.

Well happy with my 3 votes there, just interesting to see how such a basic car did up against some proper machinery.
