Default Please read, who would be interested?

Hey everyone, my name is Kyle. I race rc cars, and I thought of what I thought was a good idea, all metal dirt modifieds. I have already made one for myself. I took it to a local rc swapmeet/car show and everyone there said I should make them and sell them. Atleast 2 maybe 3 people will buy one. But what I want to know is, would people be interested in buying one? I would like to get them known in the rc racing world if it isnt already. I just don't want to make them and not be able to sell them. if anyone is interested in seeing pictures of mine, I will be more then happy to send you pictures. thank you for your time


Kyle

The idea is sweet and I think we'd all love to see pics (but you may get better responses in the oval forum), the problem is that 99% of tracks won't allow them to race, as most tracks follow ROAR rules which don't allow metal bodies.

Try uploading them into photobucket, and then copying and pasting the link into a post!

I use www.imageshack.us but I imagine photobucket is very similar...just create an account and click the upload link (or button). Browse your hard drive to select the pic you want to upload, then post a link to the pic. I know imageshack has different url's for websites, forums, etc when you click the "share" icon next to the pic, so you would copy and paste the forums url.

That worked great. BTW nice work. If I liked oval I think I would purchase one.

Do you have a price set up yet?

How heavy are the body pannels?

Posting an exact specification list would probably help selling a lot! Good luck.

thank you minittrackmann.
the body panels are real light
I'm thinking $20 would be a pretty fair price
at the nose its 6" wide
the rest of it is 11" wide.
but I can make it how big, or how small you want it.

I really wish ROAR allowed metal bodies. How much people would buy one if they did allow them?

Very nice. I don't own an off road, but they look nice.
