Riceman,

You should take a look at BSR foams for GT cars. I hear they're awesome and long lasting

Hey rice man, I ran OFNA part# 82033 and some old GQ 37 shore. They both performed very well. Since this is a 1/10 scale electric track and my DM-1 has a Mamba Max with a 2650 motor on 4cell I needed something that would hookup that power.

Thanks for the reply David! Here are our DM-1's running at WCRC last year with the Ipanema 45 Shore slicks. That's Steve N. driving my Red Bull car.

Here's a close up of the Red Bull paint scheme. That's one of the things I love about this class. You can get sooo much detail into the cars that they look very scale looking





Only this much of it is actually painted

Riceman, that's really really good. You have to let me know who does your paint work. I have a clear Kyosho Corvette body that needs some love.

That would be me. I painted four of the six bodies that ran at our last club race. I try to make up for my lack of driving skills in the paint department. Here are the other three

Riceman I remember that day that was a beautiful paint job I was afraid of putting it in the wall driving your car.

I definitely want to get out their and run with you guys. I can't make it tonight to short of a notice but next time let me know a few days in advance. I am in the process of making a graphite chassis for the DM1 and Ultra GTP so I have been a little busy.

I don't know, I think you can make it out today, but maybe just scared of getting your butt wooped!

Dman Riceman, for as much as I hate that body style you make it look good. You should paint for Protoform. I know they'd sell a lot more with those kinds of paint jobs.
