Here are a few crappy pics. I hadn't trimmed the body posts or even ran it yet when these pics were taken.





Here is a newer one with HPI Works Black/Chrome rims.

Wow, beautiful car macscac. If you can find some light buckets and/or some working lights and underglow, you'd be good to go.
Try not to hurt it while sideways

thanks for the comment!!
lights would be cool!
i actually have to upgrade my battery sticks. im using the old cheap kind and w/ PVC wheels, the batts only last like 3 min.
apparently my charger is too old to charge the good batteries so ill have to upgrade it all.

here are a couple pics i took tonite after making the new 'wheels'

Rear exit aerial is a new one for me.. I like mine to be up high so I don't loose signal on the back end of the track...

Most guys who are going for scale are switching to Spectrum as the Aerials are short enough to hide inside the Body

Love how you have mounted the wing for maximum down force (I think you will find that the wing is supposed to have the Rounded Edges mounted so they face the front)

I know not everyone loves the Associated 18R, but I can't help but show off the new chassis a little. Sorry if the pics come through a bit fuzzy, but it's the best I can do. Yes, I did use the macro setting. Anyway, the chassis is full carbon mid motor mount Exotek. The battery is still technically a two cell, but it's a saddle pack style. I don't have a nice body to put on it yet, but it's a "niteline".
