Will post pics soon.
You can redo the paint by removing the paint with dot 4 brake fluid

I just ran my car for the first real run outside, and I can already see how the tires will wear away quickly. I only have about 10 minutes of run time so far. I need lots more practice too. lol

I had to pick up a new radio and receiver, the old borrowed ones seem have an issue, either with interferance, or just not reliable connection between them. I picked up a Spektrum DX2E, cheapest i could find and do the job. College student, so I have to save as much as I can.

The old 20T brushed motor is quick enough for me for now. haha

I only just got around to finishing the original body for mine after a year of ownership as well.



Also have a Tamiya Fiat 500 Abarth body for it that's not quite done yet.

forty2; Looks good. I do like the BRE paint scheme, well, it has grown on me over the years, but decided that there are already a lot of BRE replicas, both in small scale and 1:1.

Here's mine:







If for some reason the above doesn't work, here they are again:

Interesting that Exotek changed the design of the top plate of the CRX chassis kit.

Jacob, your rear brake calipers are on the wrong side,
