Very tough choice but I think I know the one I like best , it's either Lonestars Traxxas or EOLs Optima .......

Yes some good stuff this month, despite reduced participation!

Your XXcr got the first vote of the month btw, it seems - so congrats for this. Sweet Losi! :)

That RC10 Beetle is really cool. I've always been a sucker for anything with a VW body. That one looks really nice.

I also dig the RC10 VW. It has inspired me on my current (Factory Works/A&L C2) build. I'd really like to see how that body is mounted!

Looks like a 3 horse race with only 5 votes separating them ,they all deserve it in fairness !

Pimping for Rizzo :mrgreen:
I would have said Rizzo , it's beutifully detailed but the side on photo shows a slight front wheel and wheel arch miss match,it's nothing really but it gets my ocd itching , could just be a bad photo angle ,it just goes to show how close a contest it is this month , I'd never usually go for a Traxxas because there's a Troll on another forum I use and he's a Traxxas fan boy and it's got so bad that every time I read Traxxas it sets my teeth on edge but Lonestar has nailed it with his .

My choice for Rizzo is based on the modeling skills involved. To take a body, not intended to be used on an RC10 and make it happen. Sure, the wheel openings might not be perfectly aligned but it takes a high degree of dedication to make the attempt. The bug body is not just "slapped on" the chassis, it sits low. That, takes some skill.

The other entries are, by no means lacking. For awhile I was torn between two.

*edit*

It's got a driver too!
