This is a custom made fiberglass 1/8 scale Mach 5. I wanted a Mach 5 that wasn't a "toy". This body sits on a Power Racing XR-80 chassis. It gets tons of attention when I run it. I have crashed it twice. Since I have the molds, it takes only a half days work to produce a replacement.

Hi,
Stock the 1/5 nitros get to about 40mph and the electrics about 30mph. Once they put the brushless in the electrics they are really fast. The record is about 70 mph. The electrics handle a bit better too due to their lower weight. Mine is nitro 'cause I like the noise. LOL

I got my airbrush back in deceber and I still haven't learned how to use it properly.That makes me so mad at myself![:@]But good job to all those that are painting their bodies themselves. All that I've seen so far look pretty good.

xacdesigns - sweet as u like..........as usuall. what color is the main body color? my monitors on the way out, so its hard to tell. i can make out the streaks but is it like a pearl white with a tad of blue in it or something. nice color anyway.

did someone say the colors didnt work together very well or words to that affect over in the comp on cfx. ( i might be mistaken )
anyway, i think it looks wicked


em x 6 racer - thanx man! im glad u like.
u probably wouldnt say that if i had some better pics of em...lol

im gonna try n get a website for people over here in the uk n thats why i rushed them, coz ive only painted about 10 shells ever and am trying to build up some works for the gallery


flatlander_14 - nice clean n mean lookin. i like the colors and the cf fade.

jon- your spot on with the main color! Good job! and yeah, that was said over at cfx but I completely respect the opinions over there and I take them as good feedback. It's funny because some people love the color combo, others say it doesn't go together too well. But in person it looks sweet!

Well, I'm completely new to the hobby. This is my first RC Car since back in the day (Tyco things =D )

I'm not the best painter, and the shell came painted red stock...so I plan to start over with a new shell very soon.
