Looks way better in colour. Unfortunately, I ran out of white paint for the airbrush and had to use an old rattle can to finish her off. I just realized after reviewing the photos that I didn't pre cut the mounting holes, rookie :oops:

It's red, just bad fluorescent lighting. There will be more photos once the chassis is done.

Thanks guys and Jason, it's one of the easiest paint jobs to do so get her done already!

Here are some better photos where you should be able to tell the colour better.

HA, ya you got a few things left to do :shock:

I have a question about the Worlds shocks...what weight oil/piston #/spring is typically used for outside dirt tracks for a trimmed tub RC10?

I just put a set on my graphite car and I used the black springs/#1 pistons/30wt oil and they feel like they need a stiffer spring. I'm not sure why it would feel so different from the previous top load shocks with the same setup.

Tomorrow is Monday, and the day I shit or get off the pot, if the powder coating place isn't doing to do up the chassis soon then I'm going somewhere else.

Until then here's a mockup
