Congratulations, you have managed to make all of our bodies look like crap!

But seriously, that's one awesome paintjob! Are you going to put it in a display casing or are you actually going to run your car with it, knowing it will be hard to make another one?

Default Events Calendar

Hi folks, I've implemented an Events Calendar at 3Hobby.Com. If you are a registered user you can submit details on races and/or exhibitions from around the world. This easy to use calendar at 3Hobby.Com can be a one stop place for everyone to visit and see when the next event is that you may want to attend.

Searches for events are a snap and a lot of details and links to each event can be submitted and displayed for the surfing racer.

Also, since InitialD complained that 3Hobby.Com is too secure like a fortress, I've removed the security code that you require to login! (You happy man?)

Come over and join 3Hobby.Com, there are a lot of priviledges when you do so and its a free service (all I ask is your support) to all fellow RC racers for as long as I live!

That car does look sweet. Awesome job.

I say run it. It'll make your 710 faster. You can always get better decals from modelers.

I painted this body yesterday. Nothing comparable to Glenn's and other guys hi quality work but I really enjoy doing it. And even more these days that I can't go to the track due to work...

One quick question, I just got a front diff for my 710 and I remember reading something about putting fuel tubing somewhere to help keep the dog bones from flying out??? Could someone please explain to me exactly what needs to be done? I'm going to be taking my car apart this weekend to go through everything now that I have the engine broken in. Take it all apart, check the thrust bearings, diffs and clutches to make sure everything is still OK and then I'm going to install the front diff. I want the car to be ready for next weekend that way I can take the car to the track and start enjoying it and playing with some different setups. Thanks...
Nobody going to give my question a try??
