I actually had a chance to set up my RCP track today and tested my Vet vs Micro-t

Vette-Springs, tierods, stage one 11 tooth, lowered

Micro-t- New wheels and tires

The micro-t smoked the vette. However the micro-t lacked a lot of cornering grip, it was sliding everywhere but I was able to keep it under control most of th etime.

Then it was the 6 cell mustang vs the micro-t

Mustang-6cell, stage 2 12 tooth, suspension, lowering kit, tires and rims.

Mustang smoked the micro-t, the mustang just out handled and powered the micro-t, absolutley smoked it on handling and lap times. I am somewhat impressed with my xmods but I beleive with more development the micro-t can do better.

Very cool. The Countach is my favorite car ever...well, street legal car anyway. I got the chance to drive one about ten years ago at a freind of my uncle's house...ok, it was only from the owners garage to his pool side (for pictures) and I almost drove it into the pool. They really weren't built for anyone over six foot tall...not to mention my shoulders were wider than the seatback. Still, I would have killed for that car...and as bad a fit as it was it wasn't nearly as bad as my uncle's Lotus Esprit.

My dads friend had a chance to drive a Gallardo and he said it was the best expirence he has ever had. It sounded so good.

Bleive it or not that car came red and i didn;t paint it red. Its kind of small for an xmod but it may work good (took a lot of shaving) for the extended micro-t you have with the pontiac.

I have about 4 xmods sitting around doing nothing...One gen 1, one Mustang, one Bumblebee, and a Barricade...oh and a Toyota truck. I may have to do some bodies...but I think I do a Lambo it will be a static model so I can do some serious detail.

I race mine no matter what, the challenger is actually getting rebuilt and will become a shelf queen. It has served me many good drags.

yea thats exactly the car model body, I cut out the back though so the engine would fit in mine. Mini-zs are just really expensive though, I can't try and make random stuff on them.

Hey, I just noticed the bigger rear tires on the Challenger, are those xmods wheels and tires or some aftermarket brand? They look good from what I can see.

Off of a nascar diecast, they get decent traction and only took a little trimming to fit the rim. They also look 100 times better with that body. I did get some primer on teh stang last week I'll get some pics up tomorrow.

Still undecided on a paint scheme for this and I need to pick up a radline ball bearing motor for htis.







I dripped on the windshield but its sanded and ready for a paintscheme, I was thinking red and green with red stripes on the sides of the green and silver seperating the colors? Any ideas?

Nascar diecast? Great idea, amd I have a few exta I picked up at Dollar Gengreal for $10 when they were being cleared out. The mustang looks good, I saw one somewhere that was a fade (top to bottom) from blue to purple...it was great. If you really want to test your spraying skills House of Kolor is making candy paints for models. HOC paint

I was debating a flame job but I'm unsure of my airbrushing skills as far as flames. I could try it on some crappy plastic and if I'd like it I'll just do some waterslide decals.

You could do the flames on your computer (photoshop...or if you don't have it Gimp is free) then get the inkjet decal paper. They have white or clear and I think they are waterslide...I think, I've never used them, but I have seen some that other people have done. They look pretty good, and it's not all that expensive.


Or you could do something like this...maybe a different name:

I personally use Photoimapact XL or 8 depending on what I'm doing...the older one has a few effects they got rid of that I like so more often than not I use 8. But I just loked at that paint program, it looks pretty good, and you can't beat the price.Smile

I use....drumroll.....microsoft paint! Razz Photoshop is way t oexpensive and sometimes I use gimp. I've also been told this stuff works real well.

Not bad but it freezes up my computer really badly.
