I am sure it will be great to play with. Kyosho has made a lot of great cars. It being 10th scale gas buggy though you will have a hard time finding people to race with but it should be a blast to drive.

And depending on where you live, probably just as hard finding replacement parts should you happen to break something.

At any rate, I bet most tracks that run 1/10th scale nitro truck would let you join in that class with your Ultima, kinda like how the Novice class at most tracks is usually a mix of buggies and stadium trucks.

He was kidnapped by gypsies. I believe they're doing sexual experiments on him. I'm saddened by this news, but believe Aaron will bounce back in time with therapy.

HAHAHA...that seems like it might be more fun than it sounded...in some twisted, awkward kinda way.

Haven't been sworn to silence and my computer still works, just finding different priorities and different things that make me happy. I haven't raced much lately, I guess I've just been busy with other activities. I volunteer at my old high school as an athletic trainer, taking care of all the sports teams and providing life advice to a bunch of confused teenagers, HAHAHA. My dad and I have been remodeling a rental house that my uncle owns, and I'm starting to do a little bit of work for R/C Car magazine (you'll start to see my articles in print pretty soon).

Sharp! When you paint the car, how do you match the paint colors to blend so well with the wraps?

I didn't! Haha. You can see a difference between the paint yellow and sticker yellow, and the paint red and sticker red. For this particular paint/sticker job, I think the contrast in colors looks kinda cool.

I suppose with other color schemes, matching the colors may be more crucial, but with mine it seemed to all blend together just fine.

I mailed Seann an old body for him to create my original artwork, and he was able to get the colors close (without carbon-copying my old paintjob). He will e-mail you the artwork for approval (of design, color, and logo placement) before he prints it out.
