Painting went kind of wrong, it was meant to be pink with purple stripes, did not have enough pink for the colour depth required, and could not find any white to back it with, so it ended up being a bit of a bodge job and now looks like spiderman on crack. All in all for the money it seems pretty damn good, and as long as i can get there next saturday i will bring it for its maiden.

You beauty I worked out the problem with the reversing on the radio..... the xx will be a goer on Saturday if I can make it!!
Mark when you get the servo number up on screen you have to press "end" to move the flashing from the number to the "NOR or REV"
New I'd work it out in the end..... if my wife was on here she would say...Read the manual dickhead!!
Where's the challenge in that I say!!
Cheers,
Foggy
