Here's a HPI Nissan 350Z (190mm) that I airbrushed for a local racer this week. He only gave me the body, so he'll put on any decals he wants and the wing himself.

I really like the colors he chose. I mixed a special yellow/copper metallic for him and I did the scheme on the outside with markers. Fasmask inside and a cup of coffee to start cutting. He said he wanted a wrap around checkerboard of some sort around the backside. So, this is what I came up with. Following the body lines made it flow pretty well. Should be easy to spot on the track.

Third weekend driving the USGT car. I'm running the ballistic with FDR 3.5 42 deg timing with the Hobbywing justock esc. I wish i would have done this a long time ago. My buddy is running the shurr motor with min. timing FDR 4.5.

Lap times are getting better too.
last friday times

USVTA... 8.4
USGT...7.8
13.5 t/c ..7.3 by our fast guy.

Here is my 350Z complete with wing and stickers on the chassis.

I have to leave the body posts tall as I have another body that needs them longer.

Yup! Guy we race with won this past week with one. His motor came off around 200* though, that was why he was so fast.
