Default My attempt at a Sand Rail

So I had this idea to build a sand rail like many other RC'ers. So I dismantled my Nitro Sport, and dove right in with both feet. First thing I realized was that what I see in my mind, doesnt always turn out the same for real. Anyway here are a few pics.

Well guys here is the progress I made today. Its not perfect, but its been fun so far. One major thing I learned was, next time I will not buy a roll of tubing instead of straight pieces, its just too much work trying to get the rolled stuff straightened out.
