Traxxas Slash I used to race dirt oval with. I remember when I painted it, waiting about 40 days to get the decals from China. I still have it, but it is not nearly as pretty after me bangin' it around the track. I can't remember why it has an SCR pack in it for these pics...

Nothing nice, just a spot filler.

Tamiya Stadium Blitzer, mostly built from parts that were laying around. Even though it has some new parts on it, the only things specifically bought for it are the body, front posts, and servo saver.

It has braced shock towers, AmPro upper and lower chassis braces, flipped steering blocks, and a HD servo saver.

Wheels are from a Hi-Lux, painted in gunmetal. Tires are Traxxas 4790R's all around.

Body is a JConcepts Illusion, with custom mounts.

Electronics consist of Traxxas servo and receiver, Hobbywing 1040 esc, and a Tamiya Sport Tuned motor.

I've had this little guy a long time as I probably built it 20+ years ago. It was made from bits and pieces and the body was from an old 10 cell drag car that I had. The drag car had been bounced off the curbs and gutters a few times hence why the car shows battle scars of missing paint etc.

I've got pictures of this car in action somewhere......
