Default First 8th onroad-MRX4

Here are some pics of my earnings from yesterday. All I can say was I'm very happy with this car and it's awesome. The only gripe about it is that there aren't many spare screws incase you lost something. E clips shooting off shafts at high velocity are not only dangerous, but a bitch to find. Enough chit chat, PICS!!!

After some breaks, 4.5hrs of sleep, VOILA! Also for those wondering what engine that is, here is the box. Got it for a good price since it's old.

LOl.

I thought 8th would be more expensive, but it only may seem in the long run. I spent upgrades on the R40 and for a new engine it costed me more than that I payed for this ENTIRE 8th beginner package!! I said know what...gonna do 8th. Here's the paintjob!

Nice I may get one in the summer. I'm taking a trip to Hawaii to visit my uncle and he lives not to far from a track. I'm gonna do some more research and if its a nice track I may get one. Ill be there for a good 3 weeks right before school starts. I might get a used mugen if I can find one. How much did you pay for just your kit. Everywhere I see sells them for 650.
