Jea3, here is your car in the concours challenge. I went through my photos last night of the concours.



I took a picture of all the finalists. Yours was one of them.

Also here was the winner of the Challenge for those who didnt go.

I'll get some chassis shots of both cars. The RX-8 is a HPI Pro4, with all the aluminum parts anodized red. Great car, running a 8 turn motor. The R40 is using a KFactory chassis, HPI graphite shock towers, light weight 2spd, light weight shafts, Mugen front CVD's and steering knuckles (spend hours saturday night grinding them to fit) Mugen clutch parts, dual digital servo's, 9550 futaba mounted under the upper deck. Sirio modified by Mernan, running JAC Pro Fuel, 36% nitro. HPI tires, 37 shore all the way around.

Oh yeah, 3racing battery cover also.

Sorry, I forgot, the HPI isn't anodized, that was his Corally. Post some pics of both cars.
