Hahaha thanks Ron for the interest, what is even crazier is this thread does not even have all the early tribulations of chassis, with the aluminum rails, and the CC01 axle with the watt's linkage and too long links. Or the origami paper chassis test :laughing: So I guess I can't really say it is my first custom build since it is more than one build in a way lol

Thanks again for looking, appreciate it!

I think I saw a youtube video of someone painting this body, with the separate rear part. I like the squareness of the front fenders (a bit more accurate than the RetroRacing one) but it has the same issue with front doors windows being a bit too small vertically (or I should say the trimming is much to big so it makes the window smaller). That's the reason I cut out the windows on mine. Thanks for the share!

I'm working on making a nice outside run video, now that the body is all painted. Need to find a mate to film while I make my best at driving :) Now sure how I will be able to capture nice views since the car is going pretty fast when doing the nicest slides with lots of body motion. With a good camera with an acutal zoom (and not an iPhone) it should help capture crispier video.

I too will be watching for the vid. ::2thumbs

Just an Idea...
I found a correct threaded bolt to fit my camera way back when....and rubber cemented it to the top of my TX (controller).
Id just attach the camera to it, then flop on the ground or on something to help steady things up while driving,
But my vids are lousy too so ya.....
just an Idea on how a guy might can go about filming with a camera by him self.
