I was happy with the front grill, that's about it.

I think the tiny dots in the pic are dirt/dust.

Hi Marc, I see those flyweights are for the old clutch, and not the UFO. I'm not sure if the shoe might fit though?

I have bought the team orion update set for use with the CRF engine and they have a pad in that set. I'll report back on that one at a later date since I won't be racing this weekend due to getting married

How often do you guys change bodys, run a whole seaon or does it depend on the condition etc?

notice a bit of stretch in the rear off the pipe, will this effect performance?
That is very good final result!

I have never been able to see a performance difference with that amount of stretching.

Maybe if I was on Hara or a Morganti equivalent level then MAYBE

Good drivers run the same body for quite some time. Us mortal drivers use the same body until the super glue, Shoe goo and repair tape can't hold it together anymore!

Alway bring 2 or 3 Brand new bodies to a big race. Always have a back up body brand new or in excellent condition on hand just in case your current body gets destroyed by boards, hackers and walls.

Let me think as I am currently getting ready to lay some pain now. I will go through my colors and see what I come up with. For starter I can see Some flourecsent Yellow or maybe some killer Noen Magenta with pearl white fading from front to back making a color change in the light. Let me think for a bit. I prefer major contrast and matching colors. You have a lot to work with there. Do you have an airbrush? Or do you have much painting experience? Just curious. Talk with you in a bit bro!

Yeah, you can see how well I laid down the rules - we're getting married on a race day!! I tell ya I made it quite clear I didn't think it was appropriate but she didn't change her mind.

The wedding isn't until 5pm, so if I could be confident that racing would finish by 3.30pm then I would race. I'll probably still attend and lend a hand if I can though.

Dude that's ok. It's amazing the things you can do with cans bro. Plus the detail is all done with that body. Well so far this is the order I would paint that in, but go with what you trully like. It's your body and 100% your decision. Flourecsent green or yellow (or a bright green or yellow) I prefer yellow. A bit more racy and bright for on the track. Neon Magentta, bright purple, or bright metalic blue. As you can see I keep getting darker down the line. This is because I like a bright car! I was thinking of red, it might be nice, but I think it would clash with the Flourecsent orange on there. I still need to look at all my colors, I will send you pics of what I think.

But enough of what I think. What color were you hinting towards? Usually your instinct is the best choice of all. Let me know the colors that you like and maybe we can figure it out together...since NO ONE else is adding any suggestions!!! HINT HINT!!! Talk soon bro!

Later for now!!!

OMG Serpentd.... ....your "plain & boring" paint jobs make the rest of our bodies look like rushed ".....5mins b4 the main" type bodies......lol
Your work is very professional man! By the way, no offence to others bodies.....maybe that should read my bodies...

Zoom.......if you get it sorted about getting the time for RC with the new wife. Let me know................I have ALOT (Did I say ALOT..........good!!) loads of trouble on that score!!!!!!

It's going to be bad this year too........new born baby, 14 month old baby and one just starting school And me wanting to take the U.S on this year

It took me around an our to catch up tonight. All credit to you guys for making this thread interesting........................just coooooool !

Later

Menace
