Roll cage is made up of regular drinking straws that I spray painted red and attached a pattern inside.
Exhaust is a homemade one that was created with some electrical and cable (tv) parts. I'll post a pic of it later.
Paint is a Gold to Red metallic fade (spaz paints).

r\c justin. i use very light emory paper, i couldnt tell you exactly how rough/smooth it is but i buy it from my local hobbie shop. the stuff i use when hand sanding a shell is white and its 3 grades up(rougher) from the finest one avaiable. any hardware store should also stock it. i found it takes a little bit of practice and a lot of time to smooth out a rough cut shell bu hand, but it is well worth it in the end. some on my mates use a dremil to sand their bodys but i find hand sanding a shell is much more satisfying. also you should invest in a set of curved lexan sissors, you can find them at any r/c shop and there pretty cheap. it beats the old kitchen pair by a long shot(and trust me it took me a few shells to figure that one out!!!)
i hope this has helped in some way.

By clearing using your head and looking at his photo's, you see his left side and his right side of the Silvia with no holes for an exhaust. So my money is on that it's a rear exhaust.
*Use your head.

can you explain how you installed the roll cage? cause i had some spare carbon fibre rods and i cut them down to fit... i tried installing them with different types of glue and just ruined the whole car... i just painted it too [:@]

either way im getting a new body soon and i want to make the roll cage perfect...

maybe some pictures would help?

we dont. nitros get dirty, very dirty. but im guessing most people on here do the same thing that i do and its as simple as giving the car and shell a clean before posting pics. also posting pocs when the shell is brand new helps aswell
