Have a few more items to add to the pile. I haven't heard back from the guy who was supposed to be doing the decals. He went dark, pun intended. :lol:

Anyone here brave enough or know of someone brave enough to try and hand draw some of these logos to be scanned?

Yep, CW for this runner build. I have the mid-engine body in the works too. If it works out, I'll probably do up a couple of those and maybe make one into a runner body.

depending on when you are ready to build the sheet body, I might be able to help you out with it- just depends on the timing....

Rocket wedge is my favorite CW shell 8)

I agree! Looks a bit retro.

Sounds good Reg. Gonna use the CW body to break in the guard rails. :mrgreen:

A few more items arrived today as well. Damn blue on my wheel spacers! :x :lol: Gonna do up some short rear side dams with the lexan sheets.

Looking to also build a couple of bodies from scratch as suggested for this. What thickness and where is the best place to buy the lexan?

I always used .030 lexan to make my edm bodies, mainly for durability. Most use .020.

Thanks scr8p. Got some ordered.

Was originally thinking of using a 8.5 brushless for this, but my gut says go with the 6.5-7.5T... :mrgreen: Don't know how the old Stealth would hold up.
