Thanks. Yeah this one turned out alright. Now it's time to beat it up a little bit. :wink:

What piston/oil combo are you going for?
I'm not much of an off-road suspension specialist. Just kind of looked at how this one differs geometry wise from a stock rc10 and adjusted from there.

So on the car I ran at the vonats, I had 35 f/30 r oil, #1 pistons and silver springs. On this one, I kept 35 up front with silver springs, but went with #2 pistons. On the back I went with 32.5 oil with #1 pistons and silver springs. We'll see how it goes.

Thanks. I went for #2's+40 everywhere on mine but it's probably not final. Let me start a thread on this car :)

Just gotta mount the wing and it'll be ready to hit the track.

I remember reading about this car a long while back. looks awesome, scr8p. I like the added detail on the wheels (sorta reminds me of a vintage Bugatti).

Thanks.

Yeah.... I had to add a little bling to the wheels. Kinda plays off the paint job a bit.

You got it wrong - it´s bumper cars that are supposed to have contact with the metal netting in the ceiling, not RC cars :mrgreen:
Great build with a nice paint job.
