If you were truly hard core you would be using mercury as shock oil :mrgreen:

Man that's a rolling piece of art. I hope you don't plan on running it through the dirt. :shock: Loving that aluminum body.

That is a sweet RC but I think you missed a fingerprint before you took the picture. lol how do you pick it up if you dont have white gloves. you need like a glass pillar with glass box on top in the middle of a white marble room and one light shining down on it for a display and dont forget the 2010 theme music as you enter. very beautiful piece of craftsmanship. looks like a lot of blood sweat and tears. I did a ultima mk1 body the same way. we should compare teqniques for working with sheet aluminum. Im a diehard kyosho fanatic but that is georgeous and pure art.

now you have to build one in pure gold. real gold. oh and if it were a kyosho Id call it hephaestus cause that would be something the greek god of the forge would have as a racer, picture a dude in getup like the ones from the 2010 clash of the titans movie, and the kyosho buggys of that era were greek names mostly. "Overcrhome" kinda has a ring to it and sounds like a transformer name. which is it autobot or decepticon?

I was thinking of the gold plating machines they use to do 1/1 cars rims and crome. not sure how it works on aluminum vs chrome though. the anodizing would look awesome but wouldn't have the deep liquid shine real gold does, plus there has to be some rap star out there that would pay whatever you asked for it if you wanted to sell it, lol, im guessing that would be a stupid amount to even raise a brow.

i feel a little stupid now. the reason my steering wasnt working was because I didnt have the screws on the servo horn installed. So it just slipped and slipped endlessly. Im still trimming up the rod ends some but my steering should be golden now :)

When I first saw this post I thought for sure, this car would never see the dirt....I was wrong. Actually watched this car take a lap or two on our indoor offroad track today. Good to meet you today.
