Looking foward to it then. (your doing great with the whole grammar thing) You may want to be careful running liths though. I'll send you a PM to sign up to my forum. Not very big just make sure to stay outta trouble. We don't like people who like to just try and get their post count up. We mainly use it for information purposes.

The body's looking good. If you have photoshop or one of the similar programs you can select the area that looks orange peeled and either do a slight blur or reduce the contrast. It's kind of amazing what you can do with these programs.

If I had photoshop I would all I have is photobucket and gimp. I think you can do it on both just not as well. Thats what I was thinking about the other day, other people could be using it to make their paintjobs look amazing.

You can do some pretty amazing things. I found this a few minutes ago:

I'd give a link here but the site I found it on is not too friendly to younger members...in fact they can be real "censored" to them.

Oh and one more thing , BMD, Photoshop is the best photo processing program out there... maybe that's why the full version is on sale for $650 right now. If you want the newest versions you can spend a bunch more. Photobucket is a decent free sharing site...that's what I'm using here but it is in no way comparable to photoshop. If you want a good program that's less expensive get photoimpact. You can find older versions on ebay really cheap.

I don't know the artist, and I could pick apart the mod, but it shows what can be done...and remember, its a work in progress.

I prefer musclecars (hence the name) as well. Although if you really compare the pictures it looks really changed. I just noticed he changed the color of the hood.

Well glue is drying and just final assembly. Found 1/32" galvanized steel for the custom chasis I shall be creating. If the gears could only handle a sidewinder.....

I wonder if you took the transmission apart, and took the gears to a big hardware store, if they'd be able to find matching replacement gears in metal? The case still might not take it but it would be fun to find out.

I dont think that would work but it's a nice idea musclecar should try it in the radline sometime.

Very cool. The truck body looks better on it than I thought it would. I was guessing it would look to small for the chassis. I was wrong. nice build.

Thanks!

As for bodies some can be too long to fit these but I have yet to see one to wide. I really like how it came out, especially all the chrome Shocked .

Should get some shocks coming in this week.

Going to RS to pick up some magnetic wire so I can start winding my own motors.

EDIT- I forgot pics of the chasis

Been screwing around with setups with the new aluminum chasis and debating wether or not to stay with tripple AAA's or not but the pro's saddle pack is a little too wide and makes the body look akward. So I'll stick with the tripple AAA's and I almost have enough money for the SE180 and my receiver should be coming in soon! So excited!

Winding your own motors...now you're talking! Hand wound motors are becoming rare. At well, maybe not if you're into slot cars, but in RC...very cool.
