For some reason, I feel an urge for a watermelon now-and-later candy... no idea why.

Anyone one up for a multi player game of Tetris. I really like that Idea for paint. I'm a computer geek and am trying to think of a paint scheme. Thinking something Tron.

Item ordered! I guess it's time to order up some red nuts and spacers to complete the theme. Another item that would be greatly appreciated is an aluminum alternative to the stock composite rear upper bulkhead (UM706).

I know a friend of mine who works at Epson America and has a 3d scanner. Should take a body over there and have him scan it, make it flat 2d, then do a design. For the big question, should I be red=bad or blue=good. Thinking red since its not an AE color.

Default Nice yummy PR0N!!!(!!!)

Hiya folks,

Just finished the build. That was absolutely satisfying!

I had to mod the front upper brace slightly to fit a servo saver though (chicken hit).

Enjoy!

How good are the JConcept wheels? Does anyone use them or is everyone using the KYO wheels?
