Got the F458 painted today! Very good looking body also and the decals are awesome , you end up with plenty left over for another car! Pre-order ends tonight, I will try and get the Maclaren painted by the weekend for testing on sunday.

Nice video Jstall.

Chris, thanks for the kind words, great to hear the Warrior is helping to make running more fun for you too. So, 8 to 10 mph improvement in top speeds huh?

Its awesome, considering the body was originally designed for on-road track racing almost 6 years ago. Nice to see people enjoying it with top-speed runs too.

Thanks for trying out the Warrior GT body and not listening to all those haters!

Have fun!

Just do it!

Crack that 100 mph barrier you've been chasing and I'll send you a new Warrior for free!

Want "scale" by a "Matchbox", wanna go fast buy a Ipanema Warrior!

Have fun!

These new bodies should be really cool at the track! Wish I had a big enough track to run my car on. We do have 1/10 on road in a couple places in my area but they are really tight tracks. Car takes a beating if your not 100% in the zone!

Let me clarify my conversation…….

Want to see Jstall exceed his original goal of 100mph. Cheering him on and he has his “Pineapple Express” Warrior body to help get there; so we’re ready to congratulate him when he does it.

.


Starting September 1st 2013 we’re starting our new Ipanema “Top-Speed Club” promotion.

Rules are basically very simple:
Post your new Top-Speed video runs on YouTube, using your Warrior body.
The Top 5 fastest runners for the month of September win another Warrior body for free!

The video will have to be continuous, no breaks or edits in recordings. GPS or Radar is fine and it has to be 2 Top Speed back to back passes. That’s it!

If you run the Warrior body and want another one “on the house”, get your Warriors ready for September’s “Top Speed Club” fun!

More contest information will be available on the website.

Woohoo! Sorry it's taking so long, that xo-1 tire failure really set me back! Dan at Kershaw Designs shipped my gear out Monday so I should be good for the weekend if the weather is good. I put extra glue on the GRP's and I'm going to make a getto balancer out of a old front rc8 hub and 17mm stub axle in a vise. I work full time as a 22year machinist so I'm limited to the weekends for my toys. I'm excited to get this done, I was so close!
