Unless your springs are super-hard, that bodyshell is going to drag all round on the tarmac.

And I assume you'll cut off all the body-posts to the min?

looks good. Next time you might want to just cut a hole the size of tire in the front windshield usually in the area of the gas tank so you can fill it without taking the body off. This way less likely to have some larger crap flying into your car and it will still give you plenty of ventalation

Hi mate,

looks good, but personally... I would take few stickers off which will make it look more like a drift pig. Thats me, leave the Porsche on the bonnet and stuff but take off the Porsche 911, the turbo the porsche at the front and back etc. You want it to look more plain. At the moment it looks more like a race car instead of drift. But thats my opinion. You don't have to do it.

If you decide to take them off, put aftermarket drift brands like: Greddy, Blitz, Apexi, HKS etc etc. They shouldn't be too hard to find.

Looks good though, and noticed that you moved the rear body posts into position so they are not on an angle.

Good stuff there!

Also, what car is it? Looks to me as a HSP Nitro VH Series. Cheers!

hey guys! thanx for the comments!
ya the main reason y i cut the front windshield off is because i really messed up on the paint the first time i was doing it.. and the windshield got paint all over it.. but ya next time when i get another shell ill make sure to make it more clean and nicer looking.. and ya i no it has to many stickers on it but i don't really care lol. i messed up on it so i guess this is as good as it will get.. and the car is a 4wd, 2 speed, 55mph drift car.. thats as much as i no about it right now..

Looks great, but in the future when applying decals around those tight corners like your head and tail lights, make sure you use alcohol to clean the area first, then when applying the decals use a hair dryer or heat gun, it softens up the decal so it contours to the shape your applying it too, with those gaps you have dirt and grease will get in there, and you dont want that.
