As a side note for everyone that hasn't tried the Warrior just do it and you will feel how planted the car gets. The great thing is that the more you push the better it gets. Great job Ipanema!
Thank you and big time Congrats on your TQ & Win!

Congrats on your TQ and win, jneg!!!! Going to have to work more on my skills to try to get out and stay out in front of you the next time we race together. Hope to race with you again soon.

LOL!! I love this paint scheme. Somebody has a sense of humor, This is great. Paint like this should be required for all first time racers at bigger events. Locally we dont need it since we pretty much know who's who, but for events that you dont know the racers this is awesome. Nascar does it. I'm attending my first "bigger" race this October and should consider doing a body like this to advise others of my rookie-ness. Love it.

The one thing that's been kinda lacking is really spicy paint jobs. Great paint work! GT Racing needs some more of those. I don't know who painted them, but keep up the good work. I have a couple bodies that could be painted. I'm just sayin'....

Default Ipanema

Hy,
one doubt from my side:
When you say Ipanema tires, are you talking about Sintec ? or it is just a coincidence the wheel stile are the same ?

Thanks

Well credit must be given to the painters, on the left the body was painted by Mike Design and mine (right) was painted by my great friend and pitman AntonSpeedy Paint. Both are local and do great work at great prices.

I picked up williamw's nitro dm1 spec roller, and converted it to electric using the Tekno kit. Don't need the chassis posted it up in the for sale section here.

Does anyone make a race worthy rear exhaust for the DM-1? Would it be a bad idea to try to customize one from a Revo/T-Maxx, something like that?

Ofna makes an 086 pipe and header setup that will fit on the DM-1. The chassis requires the header to have a very tight bend, a normal offroad header will not work. The 086 pipe is an excellent all around on-road / off-road pipe.

The price is great also, less than $60.00.
