Fine unless your track has speed bumps!

I like the way this car builds. Got a rolling chassis sans shocks.

Ignore the back wheel, I dont even think its mounted all the way in that pic.

Hi guys...
during I'm waiting for the new BMW 2002 body arrives soon. I just tried some thing different with the body for mu CR.
It's a classic Mini Cooper body but dresses as a member of the Team orange's drift car.
Well! it doesn't look so bad, does it?

Well, it's just a Tamiya M03 body that I applied the FACEworX decal FWD003 on.
The rims are TopCad that locally sell in Hong Kong. They are offset adjustable, too.

Here's my 510. I screwed up and sprayed window tint after white, but the result looks like a dirty, hard-raced 510 -- or a messed up paint job, your call. I kinda like it. Waiting for my Novak 17.5T to arrive to get it goin'. I'm going to get a BMW 2002 body and do it up right!

I built it with mostly stock parts, my Exotek drive cup and HR axle cups showed up a little too late so I will eventually get those on. The build went pretty smooth, it's my first on-road car and I gotta say I'm pretty stoked and anxious to get it going. I have never raced, but I've been looking in to a club that meets in Seattle and with the addition of a new Dx3s, perhaps I might!

I got a ProTek 4200 40C 2S lipo stick pack from AMain (tinyurl.com/2aovh4v add http : / / before this), it fits perfectly!

edit: fixed the ride height in the back, body fits perfectly now.
