Very nice. I think you will have to mix fascolor paints to get close to the color of your 1:1. Either that or color match your 1:1 to your Cup Racer.

You should paint your hood and spoiler semi flat black on the outside. I did my mini zee tail light bezel on the rear on the outside. I will do the rear and front spolier if it still looks out of place when it is done.

BTW, I have set this suspension up for drifting as much as I could imagine for a real car. Should I get harder tires as well?
Yes on the drift tires. For the orange try the Testors Custom Laquer Series Grabber Orange.

Tower got in the fake disc brakes for the cup racer. This qualifies as the single most useless hop up I have ever bolted onto any of my RCs, but they make me smile every time I look at them. Money well spent IMO.

Are they metal brakes with plastic calipers? Expensive, but they do look great!
