Default jconcepts body

I like that big canopy...will help it flip back over. Bad drivers like me need all we can get. About that...I was pondering the idea of getting a metal tube to use for my antenna...and maybe not even have my antenna in it...just to help flip my car over. Is that legal? Yes...I'm serious

Ugh Hate the finnisher. Thats only good for a practice body. We have so many AEs on our track, if I run that with the others, it gets lost for the RB6, so stockers for racing and the finnisher for prac . I do wish FTW will get a body out soon.

No, antenna has to be flexible and not a structural part of the car rules. I had an idea long back to have a grasshopper style prong on a third channel to flip cars over on track when needed .

Nice idea, we used them in 12th scale decades ago before we realized they were dangerous and outlawed. Rollover fiberglass antennaes, in a drawer here somewhere.

Usually when parent say "watch my kid race" it doesn't look anything like that. Car looks really good.

I know.......but she REALLY can drive.......and she's only driven R/C cars since November when she first tried my SC10 4x4 FT a few gentle laps around the track

Best part is she gets faster and faster for every practice, qualifier and final she attend......kind of wondering when it will start to level out some......she's already faster then me

Nothing hurts your ego more than walking off the stand realizing the kid that beat you was 9 years old! Especially when you are a reasonably good driver.

I'm just waiting on a transmitter to come out that looks like a Xbox/Playstation joy stick (D Pad and all) and have some 7 year old run circles around me on the track with it.

Well.....she's actually just 7......and started driving R/C cars 3 months ago.......I guess that doesn't make it feel any better though

Me.....I don't care.....I'm just too proud of her to worry about my ego

Cute kid. She definately can wheel the car. Great to see parent & child enjoying the hobby together.

Here's round #2 of the qualifying........watch closely at 4:52

She's the #2 XB4 starting as #6 due to the battery mishap in round #1

+ YouTube Video

You must be a proud father. She is a great driver and even shows great sportsmanship waiting for the other xray that flipped early in the run.

I emailed GSHobby yesterday and they said they have not recieved them from RCAmerica. So I am assuming they are not even in the states yet.
