Looks great. Hope it's charged and ready for me to slam it straight into a curb when I drive it this Saturday. Bumper looks strong! 8)

There's just something Brutish about the original Dodfighter , not pretty at all just solid goodness ! , pictures look clearer , maybe need just a tad more contrast with the back drop , i hate taking pictures , it seems for every twenty i take i get one good one .
If a jobs not worth doing then its certainly not worth doing well.

Got the smaller body done....drying, will mount it tomorrow....also converting it to a full blown runner with a saddle lipo and 1060 esc and 15 double Checkpoint. I will keep the vintage esc/nicads for vintage shelf reasons but just cant stand not running my cars even if it light duty stuff. Those nicadsbatteries and Tekin esc sucked!...lookn for some speed outa this thing

Got it done and tested...New body too! Went with a Twisters mod instead of the Checkpoint for brush wear reasons...plus Twisters are cool. Tis a ripper for sure! runs literally 20x faster than that nicad/tekin setup. tracks straight as an arrow and howls like a banshee...back to my favorite car again in my collection

I definitely like the leaner body better. Normally I like 'em with some meat on their bones, but this one looked weird to me. Genuine or not.
