I never suggested it to be original but I have made it my own as I'll relate in this amusing antidote to the forum. A racer that saw a white yellow and blue fade at his local track and asked one of the guys that races on a national level if that nashrcracer guy was there. Well I wasn't, but the guy that painted a car up like my signature style (or lack there of) got ridiculed more so, for having the same paint as that nashrcracer guy. Yes it doesn’t take much to paint them and that is good as I go through them about once every 2 or 3 months on the national level race schedule that I go through. I promised myself a worn body would not cause my failure at a national level race. I would let my driving do that for me. plus I would rather take time to take photos for www.rc50.com or work on my car then paint bodies

No. We sometimes have two or three.

darkside, primetimehobby.com down 75 to exit 306 i think coming south.
turn right. go to highway 41, take a right. 2 and a half miles on the right.
if you see a airport on the left you went to far. you will like the guy's down here, we allways have a lot of fun. sounds like we might have a pretty good turn out with t/a. i hope so these things look really cool going down the track. hope to see ya there. i will probably run the dark green camaro. just ask if you need something.

21.5/lipo is looking good too. More cars at our track are getting competitive due to this combo.
I wondered where you got all of those decals,I saw you bought a new Camaro on Sunday,what kind of paint job are you going for next?

Best way to primetime from the north Ive found was go down to exit 312. go west (right) and follow that till you come up on 41 (blockbuster video on corner) and turn left. Follow that down past the air port a ways and Primetime will be on the right.
