Default Gidday from the noob

So I guess you figured it our from the title I'm from Australia, Hi there and greetings peeps,
Zam's my username, Joe is my real name. I posted in the Aussie race section just to touch base with some locals and I decided to do the same here to everyone else.

Anyhow I'm new to nitro RC and I gotta say I'm hooked. I got my car as a recovery hobby as I broke and dislocated my Right arm while racing pocketbikes (my other hobby). Two months into it and I'm hooked.
I bought my car from the pawnbrokers (BIG MISTAKE) not knowing what to look for. I guess the only consolation was I got it fairly cheap. Drove it once. The motor was had it.
Luckily for me a mate of mine pointed me to a local hobby shop that now looks after me. Slowly I've been doing this car up and I've completely enjoyed it.
Heres some pics of what it used to look like to what it is now.
Crap pic of when I first got it (Camera phone)

Here what it looks like now, New motor, new suspension, new wheels & tyres, new body and custom paint with lights for night time play

More upgrades are on the way.

I think it's a "great Vigor" but don't quote me on that. I'll do a chassis shot when I get home from work.

The heat sink on your engine is rotated 90 degrees. The fins are supposed to pull the air down towards the glow plug. Other then that, welcome to the nitro world and have a great time playing.
