I had to customize the integy savage shocks to accomodate the legnth and the extra weight. I think The progressive shock "look" looks pretty cool...Im prob also gona recolor the sprigns either black or white but im gona leave the purple shorties on there......

Well Bottlefed, whilst your side tracking have you thought about a number plate for the back end, some thing in the line of:
1.2.3
U.S.A

or
2fast
4U

or
2COOL
Just thinking whilst I wait.

I think that the front tires are likely to dig into the sand a little just because of the weight of nitro rc and the thickness of the tire. I havent ever driven on sand, but it just seems like a possible problem. Feel free to correct my statement.

So when are you gonna start the first rail? IT looks awesome, but it could be improved by throwing a rooster tail

Can't say I like the look of that civic though. Needs to be finished. The hood is raw CF color, looks dumb IMO.

That sand rail is gonna be right at home on that homemade trailer.
Both of them look very well done projects. Now you can only guess what RC is gonna tow the rail around...
