Default Modifying Thread

Hey,

I thought I'd start-up a thread devoted to modifying your cars. Be it machining, swapping part brands on different cars...you can post anything you'd like.... websites, pics, tips, or just discussion. Have at it!

so you wish that this thread will be filled with modified settings and hop up set-up? am I right?. so this would mean any model of the car can post in here?.. I wish I could see/read more on the ae products...
I got a FT TC3 the hop-ups on my car are blue anodized ft tc3 shaft drive, carbon fiber shock tower, brp front bumper, ball diff and front one-way, low friction threaded shocks, and reedy quadmag modified motor..

CF shock towers on a TC3? It's been a long time since I followed any of the mods or hop ups for the TC3 and didn't know anyone was making them. Mind posting a pic? I'd like to see how they mount.

I've modified many cars. They start out as one piece beauties and five minutes later they go home in a bag.

Seriously, I haven't modded anything successfully in a long long time

I would like to get a drill press. That would make it a lot easier to do more precise stuff than free hand with a dremmel. Although, I do pride myself in my dremmel handy work. My ultimate goal is to make myself a custom 12th scale with really radical designs. I think that would be pretty sick.

I'm thinking though, has anyone ever put losi parts on an associated or vise versa?
