Default 1/10 Ferrari Fiorano build......w/pics

Hey guys, me again........................i'm just gonna keep posting my rigs due to the kind responses and general feedback over cool rigs!!! I am very proud of this one, the paint job alone took a week. Complete sanding down to bare plastic, prime, sand, prime, sand...........coat of cherry red, dry, and two more coats..........and presto!!! This started out life as an MJX cheapy china car, and was completely dismantled by myself and all the innards that you guys can probably say by memory were added:

Futaba 3003 servo
Futaba receiver
Duratrax 7 cell sprint ESC
Duratrax High RPM motor: http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXLLT5&P=7
Nimh battery
Real rubber tires...........stock plastics would just spin out.........Tires are by custom works
Fake plastic grill was removed and wire mesh grill added.

Tires: http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXRYG3&P=7

Intereior totally modded..........Leather seats, carpeting, aluminum trim
LED headlamps and taillamps.

This car goes at an impressive speed.............pushin 30 mph i would bet. I dont "race" it as im too protective of the paintjob, but i do drive them around the neighborhood.

I'll just keep sharing my cars until you guys tell me your sick of it

Thanks, and i hope you like!!

BTW, the reason I use the sprint ESC's is that they are bulletproof and where can you get a 7 cell esc for $29? I highly recommend them
