Charlie Brown,

I actually found that car a while ago on the net and had a cuda body painted up like like it...and it's on a TC5R running a Novak Havoc/21.5.

I had the painting done by Kolors by Kropy and I think he did a great job. I also researched that car a little bit and it turns out (correct me if I am wrong) it is being built by a French racing team.

The same with my camaro body, after a couple incidents with other cars and the boards, its nose is bent/broken. Thinking of getting a foam bumper for the cuda I am getting ready.

Yup, going to run that body this weekend. Goofed up a bit on the roof and got a bit of bleed through with the silver paint, but other than the body came out pretty good.

Was trying to find a minimalist way to mount a driver on my TC3. In total this solution cost less than $10 USD.

Parts used
$4.40 (1) Tamiya part Z58124 (0225001) - Driver head/shoulders (http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXLDW5&P=7)
$4.00 (1) Traxxas #4919 Servo mounts (2 in package)
N/A (1) Stock TC3 battery strap

I drilled a hole in the side of the battery strap and the base of the servo mount and secured with 1 screw. The entire setup is about 10-15 grams of weight.

Hi guys!

Our local club is trying to get a VTA class started and this is what I came up with! Just need some numbers to finish it off. My first VTA race is this Sunday so we'll see how it goes!

Cheers,
Mike
