no problem, it still looks great!

Im sure its going to look better than 95% of the other bodies out there, since everyone pretty much runs one color. Hey when I first did mine I did'nt know about the outline. They should send directions with that stuff. for real.

I was probably going to use the Team Orion interior body decals, like this one I used on my Yoke. It should look good with the orange decals from the kit.

yeah no shit, i looked at the package and i saw the sheet with extra stuff, thou i couldnt work out what part to paint first LOL - its not perfect as some bleeding has come through the outline of the mask, but its really just fine hair lines here and there!!!

Overal its differant, sorta copyied a similar design with the colour scheme, thou he had silver outline, next time ill try that - - - just means 3 cans instead of two

the collection has started of rattle cans, in time ill have so many colours left over to do a rainbow

Well guys its been a long day, its late , well early in the morning of 1:30am and me best be off to bed!!!

GOOD LUCk to my pals, PattoJNR & SerpantD for the races at there Local Hobby Track, guys have fun and bring it home safely but please not last

Night All

cheers
Its a BMW320I WTCC by East Coast Bodies Tune.
Its a new brand that I have just started selling here in SA.
This one is actually a 190mm electric body that has slightly thinner lexan than the gas bodies.latest electric bodies are 200mm but listed and labelled 190mm to differentiate between gas and electric.

also if you turn the front wheel one way it should be easy to turn, the other way and it should lock up. turn it harder when its about to lock up, and you may feel it slip , like i did. just something to rule out first.

Hello SerpentD,

Sorry, my laptop took a crap. Those links were just pictures of the Impulse's current state. Also about those spare parts, I recently purchased a parts lot but there were no arms. So whatever you can help me with is fine. I will be more than happy to have spare arms just in case. Thank you so much. I will try to post the pictures again.

-Mike

Well I guess you can call me computer illiterate. I don't know how to embed images. You can pm me your e-mail if you want to see the impulse.

now for an engine.

I was looking at the plain .12tz by os the 3-port is that engine already fast? or should I look into something faster?

like the Speed OS or maybe the Ninja engines?

other possibilities are the Axial .12 or maybe try out one of the IDm engines.

any help is apreciated but I would like to stay in the $300-$350 mark.


the Exhaust I have picked out its gonna be the Skyline 12 Plus VR (i think thats the name)

hi guys
tryed the ed trans yesterday
killer acceleration (watch out SA boy its quick)
was running away from andrews sirio
but still dont like oneway
like having brakes

so im going to try a front diff
will start with 50000k front oil and 10000w rear oil
on a med grip track dose that sound like a good starting point
i was happy with the steering and droop settings good grip (thanks patto)
but i have a driving style with the solid front end that i like so would like to keep that
and hope a front diff weel let me keep this style
(like to brake late !!! a real racecar driver mate of mine told me if u have the power use it in other word go hard and brake hard and that how i have been driving with thw solid front diff)
what do u think guys
let me have it

paul
