How long did it take you to build? All I did last night with mine was assemble the tires and paint the body .

I'm getting better at painting bodies, but I still managed to make a mistake on this one, its was my first attempt at doing a two tone paint job, which would have been perfect if I had had a little more patient with the taping, though if you look at my other RCs I have done this one is BY far the best.

I'll post pictures tonight of the body.

Yeah that is what I was thinking for the kit looking at it. It will probably take me two days (I have to do it while my son and wife nap ). I already have the body painted and the tires mounted. I can't wait to get this thing built and running, my sons going to love watching!

it was a fun kit to build. nothing to out of the ordinary except they put parts for certain steps in different bags. the shocks were simple to build to. the diff was easy. just take your time and enjoy

Anyone got the hop-ups so you can run amercian size bearings and rims like the ones on losi and associate.

I recall seeing 48 pitch spur and pinions as hop-up parts along with axles and bearings.

Good to hear I can't wait to get into it and start building it. I think this will be the fastest RC I will have owned to date. Its also the first on many fronts for me. First Brushless, First Lipo, First TRF, First 2WD buggy I've built.

I'm excited

Thought I would post pictures of the paint job, haven't gotten to building the kit actually, just did the body work. First I suck at cutting the bodies and secondly I suck at paint, but this was by far the best paint job I ever did. If it wasn't for the crappy job I did on the nose, I would consider it perfect.

Tell me what you think

Dis, Body looks good!

I built mine in like 3 and 1/2 hours(drill with clutch) or else it would have taken me more like 6. Loving the car, trying to find a good set up on my own. Gonna try Randys this weekend, and may make some Changes. Anyone from Tamiya other than me going to be at the Pro-Line Surf City Race?
