I like where your going with the car! i dunno if i wouldve gone with that color, maybe a strong silver all the way around. Looks like you should do a few more coats on the plastic pieces, and if you are painting them by hand, i suggest you use a spray can or airbrush because the lighter coat of paint is more evenly distributed and looks better.

it's really hard to tell in the picture though. some people thought it was aluminum. yea, it's a mix of airbrush and cans.all pieces are clear coated lightly. 3-4 coats on clear alone to better protect it from the fuel. when my body gets done, you'll see why i went with this color. maybe i'll post it tomorrow even though not completely done yet

same here, that's my money in my pocket and AM I wrong going after those you called it crazy hop up??????

I only go for performance hop up but not eye candies. every part that I choosed have their own function and gain in performance.

If you dont like them, just pass on and stay calm.
Woooooah there Manti! Sometimes I can't tell if your comments are just jokes or you're serious. Hey I didn't mean to offend you there if that's what you think. Notice the two smileys I added. It's a joke. Everyone knows here that you are the hop-up king and I was just referring to that. Same here, I don't purchase hop-ups just for eye candy, if it serves a FUNCTIONAL purpose I will more than likely get it.

I spent a few minutes talking to Josh Cyrul and he said he is making bodies now. The cool part is he is designing some new bodies that are not stratus but shooting for the same handling characteristics as the stratus. This will be totally cool, He said the first one was going to be a vaxhaull, then he said he was going to do the ford falcon and holden menaro. I cant wait till he gets a few finished. It will be nice to have more than one choice in a balanced body.

Dennis:

Said because after you get anger with the copycaters (don't trying to open up an old tear) your posts here were so minimal and seemed anger with all the people here.

You have PM, need to discuss some things with you, please answer.

The Holden and Falcon bodies are already available here in Oz - dunno how they handle though.
And BTW the Holden is called a "Monaro"
