I'm not sure which came first, the R/C or the real one.

It's probably not a far stretch to imagine that many r/c guys aren't actually full scale race fans. At least not over here and "we" certainly don't pay much attention to full scale touring cars.

As a matter of fact, I'm pretty sure the HPI may have been first.

The 'Audi' I'll be racing at the Autosport show

P.S. All 56 bodies for the show we're demonstrating at are Blitz TSX's, just with custom made stickers.

That's sweet, and sooo much better looking than flames and drop shadow everything.

If you got a Speed6 I'll be seriously unhappy!

Although amazing, time consuming, works of art, these wavy, flamy paint jobs that are all the rage now shit me. Bring on more 'realistic' paint jobs.

If not real cars, then at least something different - my last one was a tribute to motorcycle racer Marco Simmoncelli:


My next one is a simple Dukes of Hazzard General Lee.

Most of the time, I run this paint scheme. (See signature).



Last weekend, I ran this:

I've updated the info

Just shows how they all look similar

How does the handling compare to the Speed6's and LTC-R etc?
