ummm...no they're not bad but i think you could have done a better job replicating the two mugen and castrol civics. i may spawn my own design off of the frewer civic thats prolly my favorite. good ideas though i wouldnt have thought up that t-maxx with the engine but i woulda gone with translucent(smoked) windows

How could I have done better? What is it missing?

ShOzz: Yes it is painted on the outside. I rarley run any of my bodies. I usually run my EMAXX.

Thats weird I almost matched the exact box art. On the Castrol Civic I even left off a few decals.

Right on, that black and orange Civic looks smooth. I've been thinking about ordering the 300M body for my carpet sedan to see how it works. It looks tight. Everyone runs either the Stratus or Alfa bodies at the local track, but I'm looking for something different. But is still needs to give good downforce. I remember that Lancia from years ago, that's "old-school cool"

Thanks! One thing about racing the 300M, it does not come with a wing or even mounts. It may not be as good as it looks for racing.

Oh, then that won't work very well. Gotta have that rear downforce, looks cool though.

AMAZING _ Absolutely amazing!!! Good show, Calvin! Those are without a doubt the most detailed R/C's I have ever seen. I assure you that no trouble will be had winning a concourse event with those. Are those actual lexan bodies, are are they from a static model kit?

studysession: Thank you very much!

Nitroaddict: Thank you very much!!! Coming from a mod. that means alot. The Lancia's, The Wild One and The Jugg body are the only ones that are not lexan. Everything else is lexan.

Thanks again!

They are still white because:

The Lancia is white and it also cost about $80 and I'm affraid to mess it up. [&:]

and

The Jugg body still hasen't been mounted, so I have to mount it and then paint (still haven't picked a color yet) maybe a nice silver.

LosiFan: I can usually prove a hater wrong so I don't pay much attention to them. As long as one person likes it I'm happy.

I'm still a big-time fan on the black Ford F-150 with the green to white flames. The paint job on that is so unique. Excellent work with all your other bodies as well...Congrats!
