Default "Project Speed" finally done!!! 12 pictures...

For all of you that have been following my projects I do appologize for taking so long to finish this one, but it is 100% comeplete. I"m not going to list all the mods, there are way to many modifications to list but I think you can see how much money (over $700) and time has went into this, little over 2 months. If you have any questions or comments please feel free to ask! Me next project will be the Team Associated T4 which I will be purchasing next week...

Thanks guys, once I get them done, usually I'll hold on to them for a while then stick them on the market and see what I can get. As for funding my projects, I just work a 45 hour week just like anyone else and just but 1 or 2 things ever week because I'm on a weekly pay plan until I get it all done...When I picked up the remaining parts for the 18t, I already put down some cash on the T4 so, it will be coming home with me next week...

I'm guessing it is just a hobby of love because you never get your money back from what you put into them. In fact, I've found it is more profitable to part them out, when selling old cars....snif...snif. [sm=crying.gif]

That one is too pretty to beat up. Maybe it'll end up as a shelf queen.

you said that you sell them, I mean that rc18t has more than the actual value in up-grades so I am asking how much you usually get for your projects, more than the new price I guess..
